All IMCS authors are strongly encouraged to resubmit your abstract when submission opens in September 2020. All abstracts involved, re-submitted abstracts, or modified abstracts, or new abstracts are welcome but need to be re-submitted to be included in the technical program. In addition, all authors will need to take this action to ensure that the abstract is submitted to their specifications for the technical program. We look forward to seeing you in Chicago next year!

You are also invited to submit a paper to Volume 1 of the Focus Issue collection of papers from 18th IMCS 2020, with closing deadline September 18th.

The Volume 2 of the Focus Issue collecting papers from 18th IMCS will be available for submissions next year at the time of the meeting, in May 2021.

Currently accepted papers can be submitted to Volume 1 or Volume 2.  If you have a new abstract topic this should be included in Volume 2.

Technical Program

Multi-day, multi-session conference on all aspects of chemical sensors and biosensors will include: sensor design, function, response mechanism, miniaturization, manufacture, evaluation and characterization, modeling, applications alone or in sensing systems, and integration with computational and communication systems. Novel sensors and materials including metal oxides, gas, electrochemical, optical, acoustic, mechanical, magnetic, MEMS/NEMS, and bio-recognition are also included. Other topics include: Technology for manufacture of sensors at low cost, sensor supply chain development, and approaches to quality control for sensors and sensing materials. Novel use of nanotechnology and nano-engineering materials, including modeling of the performance of chemical and biosensor selectivity and sensitivity. Microfluidics and sensors embedded within systems and devices, liquid sensors, miniature instruments, artificial taste/olfaction sensor arrays along with sensor networks, signal processing, data fusion, efficient data transfer and in-field calibration methods. Special session will be held on Emerging Sensor Technology, the Internet of Things, Sensors in Agriculture, and Wearable Sensors on Flexible Substrates. Papers on the application of sensors, sensor systems, and micro-instruments to medical, health, athletics, environmental, home, energy, safety, manufacturing, transportation, industrial, security, space, and defense applications are also encouraged.
