NIR-2009 Conference

NIR-2009 Conference

There was an extensive programme of oral and poster presentations. Four keynote presentations were given on the history of NIR by pioneers of the technique. We have recorded these and wish to express our gratitude to the organisers and to the lecturers for giving their permission.

In addition, two awards were presented on the Wednesday morning. The Tomas Hirschfeld Award, sponsored by Büchi, was presented to Sumio Kawano (National Food Research Institute, Japan) and the Büchi Young Researcher Award to Monica Casale (University of Genova, Italy). Both Sumio and Monica gave award presentations and we have been able to record these as well. Our thanks to the awardees for their permission to do so.
