ABOUT THE MEETING

J

oin us at the 18th International Meeting on Chemical Sensors (IMCS 2020) which will be co-located with the 237th Meeting of the Electrochemical Society and sponsored by the ECS Sensor Division. This meeting is the largest and most renowned conference in this scientific area and an excellent opportunity to network with leaders in the field and with companies commercializing chemical sensors for the environment, medical, healthcare, industry, and food safety applications. We invite you to sponsor and attend this popular meeting for scientists, engineers and business entrepreneurs who are interested in chemical sensor technology to learn about the latest developments in the field.

ABOUT IMCS

hemical and Biosensors for gases, vapors and liquids are becoming more critical, as you are well aware, with recent developments in changing weather patterns and the impact of green-house gases and their adverse effects on the environment. We anticipate sweeping changes to the application of sensors to air quality monitoring, food safety and water quality in the near future. Sensor technology is also widely applied to human medical diagnostics and health and fitness monitoring. The demand for environment sensing and development of sensor technology to determine the effects on human and animal health are critically important. This is an opportunity to participate in the revolution that is taking place in sensor technology leading to new monitoring and sensing systems connected to the Internet of Things. Please be a part of this important event. Have your voice in the debate, and expose your company to the revolution taking place in sensor technology.
