Welcome from the Chairs

Welcome from the Conference Chairs of the 4th International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications

All participants of ECSA-4 are welcome to submit the extended work to the Sensors Special Issue "Selected Papers from the 4th International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications".

We gladly announce that Dr. Francisco Falcone, Prof. Kunio Shimada, Mr. Stephen Reece, Dr. Filippo Ubertini,
Prof. Dr. U. Schmid and Prof. Hugo J. Avila-Paredes' papers were awarded the ECSA-4 Best Paper Award in 2017.

We are pleased to announce the 4th International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications. After the success of the three editions from 2014 to 2016, this year edition will focus on 5 thematic areas where sensors are changing science:

  • Biosensors (Session A)
  • Chemical Sensors (Session B)
  • Physical Sensors (Session C)
  • Sensor Networks (Session D)
  • Applications (Session E)

There will be 2 specific sessions:

  • Smart Cities (Specific Session S1)
  • Smart Sensing Systems and Structures (Specific Session S2)

and also a Poster session. Posters can be presented without an accompanying proceedings paper and will be available online on this website during and after the e-conference. However, they will not be added to the proceedings of the conference.

Participants will have the opportunity to examine, explore and critically engage with issues and advances in these areas. We hope to facilitate discussions and exchange within the community.

This event will solely be an online proceeding which allows the participation from all over the world with no concerns of travel and related expenditures. This type of conference is particularly appropriate and useful because research concerned with sensors is progressing rapidly. An electronic conference provides a platform for rapid and direct exchanges about the latest research findings and novel ideas. The participation as well as the “attendance” of this online conference is free of charge.

The 4th International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications will be held at https://sciforum.net/conference/ecsa-4, on a platform developed by MDPI to organize electronic conferences.

The 4th International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications is sponsored by MDPI and the scientific journals Sensors. Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of this e-conference, and selected papers will be published in Sensors with a 20% discount off the APC. Sensors is an Open Access publication journal of MDPI in the field of the science and technology of sensors and biosensors (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/sensors).

We hope the community will share this enthusiasm and help making this 4th edition a success – for many to come in the future.

He performed his diploma work at the research laboratories of the Daimler-Benz AG (now Daimler AG) on the electrical characterization of silicon carbide (6H-SiC) junction field effect transistors at high temperatures. During this time, he also investigated metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOSiC) based structures, such as gate controlled diodes, MOSFETs, and integrated circuits for harsh environment applications. He finished his studies in 1998 at the University of Frankfurt/Main, Germany. In 1999, he joined the research laboratories of DaimlerChrysler AG (now Airbus Group) in Ottobrunn/Munich, Germany. He developed a robust flow sensor for high-pressure automotive applications and received his Ph.D. degree in 2003 from the Technische Universität München, Germany. From 2003 to 2008, he was Post-doc at the Chair of Micromechanics, Microfluidics/Microactuators at Saarland University.

Schmid has authored or co-authored more than 300 peer-reviewed publications in journals and conferences and holds more than 40 different patent families.

 

Filippo Ubertini, born in 1982, is an Associate Professor of Structural Design at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of University of Perugia, Italy, where he currently teaches "Advanced Structural Design". He graduated cum laude in Civil Engineering at University of Perugia in 2005 and received his Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering from University of Pavia in 2009. He was visiting scholar at Columbia University in 2008 and has been invited to give talks in several leading international universities around the world. He is author of more than 100 scientific papers among which 50 in refereed international journals. He is currently member of the editorial boards of Shock and Vibration, Mathematical Problems in Engineering and Journal of Smart Cities. Aided by a group of young and motivated researchers, he is currently leading a research effort focusing on novel solutions for structural health monitoring, with emphasis on dynamic methods and system identification, smart structural materials (smart concretes and smart bricks) and applications to earthquake engineering and cultural heritage structures.

List of Keynotes & Videos

Piezoelectric Microsystems: Material Aspects, Devices and Applications

My talk is divided into three parts: First, I will give a short introduction to the Institute of Sensor and Actuator Systems, our infrastructure and our expertise in the field of micro- and nanomachined devices and systems. In the second part of my talk, piezoelectric thin films are introduced for MEMS. I will highlight latest results on the electrical, mechanical and piezoelectrical characterization of sputter-deposited aluminium nitride (AlN) including the impact of sputter parameters, film thickness and substrate pre-conditioning. To enhance the moderate piezoelectric coefficients of pure AlN thin films doping with scandium is done leading to an increase of this material parameter up to factor of 4. In a next step, these films are implemented into the fabrication process of cantilever-type MEMS devices. In combination with a tailored electrode design resonators are realized having Q factors up to about 300 in the frequency range of 1-2 MHz in liquids, thus enabling the precise determination of the viscosity and density of fluids. An additional field of application are vibrational energy harvesters, where the benefit of ScAlN compared to AlN is demonstrated. In the third part of the talk energy harvesting at aircrafts is introduced. Due to the ambient conditions during operation a thermoelectric generator is developed providing enough electrical energy to power wireless sensor nodes for structural health monitoring purposes. The basic concept of the energy harvester as well as first results from flight tests are presented.
