Welcome from the Chairs

7th International Symposium on Sensor Science (I3S 2019)

location 9-11 May 2019

Centro Congressi Federico II, Napoli, Italy

Please feel free to download our I3S 2019 Poster.

Welcome

Sensor's technology has shown to be suitable for applications in many important fields, including pharmaceutical researches, medical diagnostics, environmental monitoring, industrial applications, food safety and security. Sensor's technology represents the ideal turf to foster the development of innovative applications, measurement schemes and strategies, comprising the exploitation of transducers, smart materials, receptors, nanostructures and so on. This international conference, supported by the journal Sensors, brings together scientists from different areas to discuss important recent developments in sensor's technology. It represents an opportunity to meet an interdisciplinary community willing to discuss on important breakthroughs in sensor's technology and related fields.

I3S 2019 follows the very successful conference "I3S 2017: 5th International Symposium on Sensor Science” held in September 2017 in Barcelona, Spain.

We hope to see you in Naples!

Conference Venue

The conference will be held at Centro Congressi Federico II, Via Partenope, 36 - Napoli, Italy.

How to get there:

In Naples, you can revisit the history and development of the city by means of itineraries from the very first settlements, passing through places with testify to the past, but which only occasionally show clear signs of events while more often tending to stimulate the imagination.

The starting-point is Partenope, which was founded about 3,000 years ago, and the point of arrival the new city, Neapolis, the real historical centre and heart of the modern metropolis. As we go along the roads that have become part of Partenopean history and culture, we discover archeological and sites and examples of art which are unique. The cult of the dead, which so much typifies the culture of the Neapolitans, comes alive in the mysterious scenario of the Necropolis of the Sanità. Approaching the hill of Posillipo, our journey ends with an itinerary which leaves us enchanted by the extraordinary beauty of the natural scenery which the ancient Romans learned to love.

Naples has a very important cultural and historical heritage, a fantastic cooking, an international airport in the city center and, in the near surroundings, you can find several important sites, such as Pompei and Vesuvius, Ercolano, Capri, Ischia, Procida, Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi, Pozzuoli and Phlegrean Fields with the Solfatara crater etc.
