From robots and self-driving cars to on-site medical diagnostics, the exciting advances in today’s technology require sensors. Biologists, engineers, physicists and chemists are working to provide these sensors. This conference, supported by the journal Sensors, brings together scientists from different areas to discuss important recent developments in sensor technology. The conference format is designed to promote plenty of interaction between scientists and engineers from different disciplines. This is an opportunity to discuss important breakthroughs in sensor technology and related fields; broaden your knowledge, meet sensor scientists from other areas and perhaps develop new mutually beneficial collaborations.
