8th International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications
Welcome from the Conference Chairs of the 8th International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications
We are pleased to announce the 8th International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications. After the success of the seven editions from 2014 to 2020, this year edition will focus on four thematic areas where sensors are changing science:
Chemo- and Biosensors (Session A)
Physical Sensors (Session B)
Sensor Networks (Session C)
Applications (Session D)
There will be nine specific sessions:
S1. Structural Health Monitoring Technologies and Sensor Networks
S2. Wearable Sensors
S3. Smart Cities
S4. Optical Sensors
S5. Sensing and Imaging
S6. Vehicular Sensing
S7. Positioning and Navigation
S8. Sensing for Robotics and Automation
S9. Ultrasonic Monitoring of Fibre Metal Laminates
and also a Poster session. Posters can be presented without an accompanying proceedings paper and will be available online on this website during and after the e-conference. However, they will not be added to the proceedings of the 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 https://sciforum.net/conference/ecsa-8#awards.
This event will solely be an online proceeding that allows participation from all over the world with no concerns of 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. The participation, as well as the "attendance" of this online conference, is free of charge.
The 8th International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications is sponsored by MDPI and the scientific journal Sensors (ISSN 1424-8220, IF 3.576). The conference proceedings papers and presentations will be available on https://ecsa-8.sciforum.net/ for discussion during 1-15 November 2021 and will be published in the journal Engineering Proceedings.
Extended and expanded versions of conference proceedings papers can be submitted to Special Issue "Selected Papers from the 8th International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications" in 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 8th edition a success—for many to come in the future.
