  •         Informatics in smart sensing applications – communication and data analysis.

Invited Lectures

 A number of invited speakers will introduce the conference with presentations in the following areas:

  • Electrochemical SERS for the discrimination of DNA from biothreats – Phil Bartlett, Southampton
  • CMOS gas sensors for healthcare – Julian Gardner, Warwick
  • Making smarter biological interfaces for sensing – Paula Mendes, Birmingham
  • Optical molecular imaging – the real-time in-situ detection of bacteria in man – Mark Bradley, Edinburgh
  • Detecting the threat – Licia Dossi, Cranfield
  • Smart sensors for environmental monitoring – Nathan Lawrence, ANB Sensors Ltd

The conference will be supplemented with poster presentations and exhibition.
