3rd International Plant Spectroscopy Conference

Nantes, France, September 12-15, 2022

Welcome to the 3rd International Plant Spectroscopy Conference!

The 3rd International Plant Spectroscopy Conference (IPSC2022) will be held in Nantes, France, in September - from Monday 12th to Thursday 15th.

This event is part of the biennial conference series, organized jointly with the International Society for Plant Spectroscopy (ISPS) and the French National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment (INRAE).
We encourage everyone to share their research concerning the potential and use of different spectroscopic techniques in various fields of plant sciences by submitting an abstract for oral or poster presentation.

The topics include (but are not limited to):

  • FTIR (micro)spectroscopy
  • Raman (micro)spectroscopy
  • Autofluorescence spectroscopy and imaging
  • Mass spectrometry and imaging
  • NMR spectroscopy and imaging
  • Related chemometric approaches


In addition to scientific sessions, we invite both beginners and experienced researchers to participate in four technical workshops:
  • Data analysis techniques
  • Sample preparation
  • Spectral technique selection
  • Correlative and multimodal imaging

The goal is to encourage discussion, share experiences, and questions about your practice, and improve your technical skills and knowledge.

View the program


A special issue of Biomolecules will cover the conference, with discounts for conference participants and an award for the best poster.
We are confident that IPSC2022 will be an unforgettable event and we cordially invite you to join us in Nantes, France, in September 2022!
