Welcome from the Conference Chair

Sensors are vital components of smart manufacturing, artificial Intelligence, Cyber–Physical System (CPS) and Internet of Things (IoT) for industry 4.0. For more advanced creations, biologists, engineers, physicists and chemists are all endeavoring to provide innovative technical sensors. This year, 2018, the well-known journal, Sensors, is going to hold the international conference in Kenting, which is located in the south of Taiwan—taking place in Asia for the first time. I3S embraces all professionals from industry, academia and government to discuss the latest developments and breakthroughs of sensor technology and related subjects. During the conference, attendees, from a range of research areas, will all gather together to share different aspects and establish new mutually beneficial collaborations across different fields.

We sincerely look forward to your participation in I3S2018.

Kenting

Kenting National Park, Taiwan's first national park, is bounded by the Pacific Ocean on three sides, the Pacific ocean to the east, the Taiwan Strait to the west and Bashi Channel to the south. The Park embraces land both above and below water. Located over an area of significant tectonic activity, this part of Taiwan is home to many unique geological features, including uplifted coral beds, ocean erosion, and fault line rifts. Geography and tropical climate have together created a rich and varied natural canvas, which today helps define Kenting's special place among Taiwan's national parks. In addition to geology, natural attractions of particular interest in the park include rarely seen coastal plants, the annual autumn overflight of migratory birds from northern Asia, and beautiful living coral reefs.

For a complete overview, see Kenting National Park.
