Acceptance Notification: 05/10/2018
Full Paper Submission: 15/10/2018

Welcome from the Chairs

We gladly announce Dr. Babak Moaveni (Tufts University, Medford, MA, USA), Dr. Pascal Nicolay and Dr. Michael Ortner (Carinthian Tech Research, Villach, Austria) as our Keynote Speakers.

We are pleased to announce the 5th International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications. After the success of the four editions from 2014 to 2017, this year edition will focus on 4 thematic areas where sensors are changing science:

There will be 4 specific sessions:

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 5th International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications will be held at https://ecsa-5.sciforum.net/, on a platform developed by MDPI to organize electronic conferences.

The 5th 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.

We hope the community will share this enthusiasm and help making this 5th edition a success—for many to come in the future.

Copyright

MDPI, the publisher of the Sciforum.net platform, is an open access publisher. We believe that authors should retain the copyright to their scholarly works. Hence, by submitting a Communication paper to this conference, you retain the copyright of your paper, but you grant MDPI the non-exclusive right to publish this paper online on the Sciforum.net platform. This means you can easily submit your paper to any scientific journal at a later stage and transfer the copyright to its publisher (if required by that publisher).
