Many international researchers joined the 11th Confocal Raman Imaging Symposium from September 29th to October 01st 2014 in Ulm, Germany. The conference is a popular event at which the Raman community can present and discuss its latest scientific results. Talks from various fields of application and over 20 poster presentations provided a comprehensive overview of modern Raman microscopy for the 80 participants. Another conference highlight was the presentation of the new Raman and Scanning Electron Microscope RISE.

Confocal Raman Microscopy is a high-resolution imaging technique that has become widely used for the characterization of materials and specimens in terms of their chemical composition. With 2D and 3D Raman images, information regarding the chemical compounds and their distribution wihtin the sample can be illustrated clearly. Newly developed software solutions for data acquisition, evaluation, and processing support the management and visualization of even large Raman data sets while providing usability for all experience levels and requirements [1,2,3].

The winners of this year's WITec PaperAwards have been announced. Research groups from the USA, France, and Germany won the PaperAwards in gold, silver, and bronze, respectively. The annual awards honor outstanding scientific publications that feature results acquired with a WITec instrument. Scientists from all over the world submitted more than 60 publications, from between January and December 2013, to this year's competition. A jury chose the three winning papers from among the submissions to be honored with a PaperAward. Selection criteria included the impact of scientific results and the innovation of the applied techniques.
