Please feel free to download our I3S 2019 Poster.


Sensor's technology has shown to be suitable for applications in many important fields, including pharmaceutical researches, medical diagnostics, environmental monitoring, industrial applications, food safety and security. Sensor's technology represents the ideal turf to foster the development of innovative applications, measurement schemes and strategies, comprising the exploitation of transducers, smart materials, receptors, nanostructures and so on. This international conference, supported by the journal Sensors, brings together scientists from different areas to discuss important recent developments in sensor's technology. It represents an opportunity to meet an interdisciplinary community willing to discuss on important breakthroughs in sensor's technology and related fields.

We hope to see you in Naples!

Venue, Travel and Accommodation

Conference Venue

The conference will be held at Centro Congressi Federico II, Via Partenope, 36 - Napoli, Italy.

How to get there:

In Naples, you can revisit the history and development of the city by means of itineraries from the very first settlements, passing through places with testify to the past, but which only occasionally show clear signs of events while more often tending to stimulate the imagination.

The starting-point is Partenope, which was founded about 3,000 years ago, and the point of arrival the new city, Neapolis, the real historical centre and heart of the modern metropolis. As we go along the roads that have become part of Partenopean history and culture, we discover archeological and sites and examples of art which are unique. The cult of the dead, which so much typifies the culture of the Neapolitans, comes alive in the mysterious scenario of the Necropolis of the Sanità. Approaching the hill of Posillipo, our journey ends with an itinerary which leaves us enchanted by the extraordinary beauty of the natural scenery which the ancient Romans learned to love.

Naples has a very important cultural and historical heritage, a fantastic cooking, an international airport in the city center and, in the near surroundings, you can find several important sites, such as Pompei and Vesuvius, Ercolano, Capri, Ischia, Procida, Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi, Pozzuoli and Phlegrean Fields with the Solfatara crater etc.


In the area of the Conference (Via Partenope, 36 - Naples) there are many hotels, shown in the map here below; please consider that Naples is a touristic city and the area of the Conference is one of most renowned; therefore it is highly advisable to make the reservation quite in advance.

Beware of Unauthorized Registration and Hotel Solicitations
Note that Sciforum is the only official registration platform to register to the I3S2019, and that we are not associated with any hotel agency. While other hotel resellers and travel agencies may contact you with offers for your trip, they are not endorsed by or affiliated with the I3S2019 or Sciforum. Beware that entering into financial agreements with non-endorsed companies can have costly consequences.

Travel Information - Getting to Naples

If you arrive by plane

Naples has an International Airport called Capodichino. The airport is well connected to airport hubs in Europe, like London, Paris, Barcelona, Frankfurt and Munich, with daily connections and more than 85 destinations in Europe. It is located at a 7 km from the city centre. For information about Naples Airport and flights, please visit the web site "Aeroporto di Napoli". Alternatively, the best and closest destination is Rome Fiumicino airport. From this Airport, you will need to take a train (Leonardo Express) or a bus to the Railways Station of Rome Termini. Leonardo Express takes about 32 minutes to the Railways Station of Rome Termini. From Rome Termini fast trains called Freccia Rossa and Freccia Argento leave about each hour to Napoli, taking about 1 hour and 10 minutes. For timetable of trains connecting Rome to Naples and back please visit the web site: Trenitalia or Italo. For Leonardo Express go to the page: Leonardo Express.
