An increasing demand for electronic instruments that can mimic biological olfaction processes led to the development of electronic nose and tongue systems, that is, intelligent chemical sensor arrays for odor classification and/or gas discrimination. Such systems include the materials to build the sensing elements, the device architecture, and intelligent signal processing methods. Nanotechnology has enabled the development of handheld electronic olfaction systems that are promising non-invasive health monitoring tools, as well as environmental testing and quality control devices.
The International Symposium on Olfaction and Electronic Nose (ISOEN 2011) conference brings together experts in various fields of engineering, from biomedical to environmental to materials engineering to the artificial intelligence community to discuss the state of the art and find solutions and trends for the future development of this exciting and cutting edge research and technology domain. This conference is the 14th ISOEN meeting sponsored by ISOCS and is organized by the Rockefeller University inNew York City, USA. This conference will take place in May 2 - 5, 2011.
The key themes of the conference are:
- nanomedicine and selective chemo-sensing,
- artificial olfaction in quality control
- applications of sensor arrays in safety and defence.
