Welcome to RamanFest 2014!

HORIBA Scientific is pleased to announce that our 2nd Annual Conference on Applied Raman Spectroscopy will be held in conjunction with Harvard University in Boston, MA. There will be two days of dedicated seminars on June 12th to June 13th. Registered Guests are invited to submit abstracts for posters, that will be available all day on both days.

Continental breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided on both days.
