Welcome from the Chairs

Welcome from the Conference Chairs of the 11th International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications

We are pleased to announce the 11th International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications. After the success of the nine editions from 2014 to 2023, this year edition will focus on the following thematic areas where sensors are changing science:

S1. Chemo- and Biosensors
S2. Physical Sensors
S3. Sensor Networks, IoT, Smart Cities, and Heath Monitoring
S4. Sensors and Artificial Intelligence
S5. Smart Agriculture Sensors
S6. Electronic Sensors, Devices, and Systems
S7. Wearable Sensors and Healthcare Applications
S8. Robotics, Sensors, and Industry 4.0
S9. Student Session

Posters can be presented without an accompanying proceedings paper and will be available online on this website during and after the e-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. Best contributions in each session will be collected and brought to a live event broadcast on Webinars through zoom. A student competition will also be held online for selected students' contributions (students as correspondences) exhibited in the Student Session. For more details of the competition please click Event Awards.

This event will solely be an online proceeding that allows participation from all over the world with no concerns about 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. Participation, as well as the "attendance" of this online conference, is free of charge.

The 11th International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications is sponsored by MDPI and the scientific journal Sensors (ISSN 1424-8220, IF 3.9). The conference proceedings papers and presentations will be available online for discussion during 26-28 November 2024 and will be published in the journal Engineering Proceedings.

Extended and expanded versions of conference proceedings papers can be submitted to a Special Issue in the journal Sensors after the conference, with a 20% discount on the Article Processing Charges.

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 11th edition a success—for many to come in the future.

The Chairs of the 11th International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications.
