The International Conference on Advanced Vibrational Spectroscopy (ICAVS) is a leading international conference that is open and dedicated to advances in all areas of vibrational spectroscopy. It therefore provides a broad, unique learning experience for newcomers to leaders in the field of infrared and Raman spectroscopy. The conference serves as an important event for discussion and exchange of the most cutting edge knowledge, insights, issues and ideas in vibrational spectroscopy.
