Welcome from the Chairs

Dear Biosensors Community,

It is our pleasure to invite you to join the 4th International Electronic Conference on Biosensors (IECB 2024), which will be hosted online from 20 to 22 May 2024.

The aims of this online conference are to gather important experts from around the world who are currently working in biosensors and provide an online forum for sharing and exchanging knowledge. Highly experienced researchers will be invited to share their important advancements in the field.

Particular attention will also be given to young scientists approaching the world of biosensors, in order to stimulate their participation in the discussion on the topic.

Biosensors currently have an enormous range of applications due to their unique advantages, improving our overall quality of life with uses in, for example, environmental monitoring, disease detection, food safety, defense, drug discovery, and many others.
Throughout the event we aim to cover—among others—the following topics:

1. Artificial intelligence in biosensors;
2. Ingestible, implantable and wearable biosensors;
3. Smartphone-based biosensors;
4. The evolution of biological recognition elements in biosensors;
5. Microfabrication and printing techniques in biosensors;
6. Nanomaterials and smart surfaces in biosensors;
7. Technological advancements in biosensor actuators;
8. Paper-based biosensors;
9. Optical and photonic biosensors.

We hope you will join us in presenting your work at IECB 2024 and be part of this stimulating online experience.

Kind regards,
Professor Giovanna Marrazza and Dr. Sara Tombelli

Any financial support for the study must be fully disclosed in the "Acknowledgments" section.

Copyright

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

Event Awards

To acknowledge the support of the conference's esteemed authors and recognize their outstanding scientific accomplishments, we are pleased to announce that the conference will provide 4 awards including Best Oral Presentation Award and Best Poster Award.

The Awards
Best Oral Presentation Award and Best Poster Award

Number of Awards Available: 4

The Best Oral Presentation Award is given to the paper judged to make the most significant oral contribution to the conference.
The Best Poster Award is given to the submission judged to make the most significant and interesting poster for the conference.

There will be four winners selected for this award. The winner will receive a certificate and 200 CHF each.
