Vibrational Spectroscopy Meets Geoscience (GeoVibrS)

                 June 24th – 28th 2024

Vibrational Spectroscopy meets Geoscience (GeoVibrS)

Villa del Grumello (Lake of Como, Italy)

June 24th – 28th  2024



Vibrational spectroscopic techniques are becoming increasingly available and fundamental for the investigation of Earth’s and planetary materials at the microscale in situ as they allow preserving the pristine nature of the sample while carrying out the analyses. However, current advances in vibrational spectroscopic techniques are pushing the limit also for data interpretation and processing that require increasingly more to be coupled with computational methods. In earth science application we are progressively away from the simplistic approach “measure-compare” toward a more sophisticated “simulate – measure – interpret” approach.

15 leading scientists in their fields will give lectures and hands on practical courses. There will be practical sessions on the fourth day, including the use of a Raman spectrometer. The students will have the possibility to present their work at the end of two days as poster or short talks. The last day a round table will allow students to share ideas and experiences gained during the school.


A beautiful location

Lake Como School of Advanced studies is located c/o Fondazione Alessandro Volta in the beautiful setting of Villa del Grumello, in Como, Italy

Venue & Accommodation

The Lake Como School of Advanced Studies is an international research facility. We run fellowships, short term programmes on a wide range of interdisciplinary subjects, that share a common focus on complex systems.
