AIS is intended to explore ways that spectroscopy and spectral sensing can be used in industrial settings to provide actionable information.

Developed spectroscopic technologies with applications across industries as well as new, cutting-edge technologies in transition from development to industrial settings are encouraged.

Specific areas of interest include quality control, incoming materials inspection, uses in food processing and agribusiness, and uses during product manufacture, to name a few. The conference has a focus on applications with broad reach in major markets, demonstrating the utility of a variety of spectroscopic techniques, from absorbance / reflectance / transmission, to established methods such as Raman, LIBS, FTIR, Terahertz spectroscopy, and Mass spectroscopy. Examples and best practices for technology adoption are encouraged. 

Areas of interest include:
  *   Food and Agriculture
  *   Consumer goods manufacturing
  *   Biopharmaceuticals
  *   Biomedical
  *   Mining
  *   Chemicals and chemical processing
  *   Petrochemicals
  *   Electronics manufacturing
  *   Energy exploration
