The 4th annual NSERC CREATE AMETHYST Workshop on Hyperspectral Imaging Science and Technology features world-class experts from Canada and Europe coming together for two full days of diverse imaging technology and applications in three areas:

- Terrestrial remote sensing

- Atmospheric analysis

- Magnetic Resonance Imaging

The goal for this Workshop is to assemble excellence from government, industry and universities from different parts of the world - and bring them together for 2 intense days of state-of-the-art imaging work. We also integrate selected AMETHYST students into the speakers program to provide important experience and to profile our excellence to our visiting guests and others. In addition to this, we provide "Round-Table" Q/A sessions where students and others explore questions and key discussion points, facilitated by AMETHYST leaders. There are also important networking opportunities as we provide breaks and lunches to all registrants to ensure continuity for the group throughout the two days.

A total of seven invited speakers from institutions such as the University of Paris (France), the Canadian Apace Agency (CSA), and selected scientists from western Canadian universities will come together to provide an important training experience.

The scientific focus of our summer program is an important part of our overall workshop series, as it balances with the Career and Professional Development workshops that we run in the winter.
