Welcome to the Congress Ibersensor 2018.

This year will be held in Barcelona the XI Ibero-American Congress of sensors (IBERSENSOR 2018). This Congress has a long tradition that started in 1998 in Cuba and has been held every two years in cities all Ibero-American: La Habana, Cuba (1998); Buenos Aires, Argentina (2000); Lima, Peru (2002); Puebla, Mexico (2004); Montevideo, Uruguay (2006); Sao Paulo, Brazil (2008); Lisbon, Portugal (2010); San José, Puerto Rico (2012); Bogotá, Colombia (2014) and Valparaiso, Chile (2016).

IBERSENSOR offers a unique forum for scientific and technological exchange between Latin American researchers who carry out their activities in the field of sensors and their applications. The continued interaction among research groups that this Congress has promoted has contributed to enhance the scientific level of our countries in the field of the sensor, an activity in rapid development and enormous interest and social impact worldwide.

IBERSENSOR covers a diversity of interdisciplinary activity areas, as it is the topic of sensors, ranging from physics, chemistry, electrical engineering, engineering materials, nanoscience, (bio) sensors. In addition, it covers aspects on key enabling technologies (KETs), such as nanotechnology, micro- and nanoelectronics, including semiconductors, advanced materials, biotechnology and photonics.

The official languages of the Congress are the Spanish, Portuguese and English.

The scheduled dates for the Conference are from 17 to 21 September 2018. For this Edition, IBERSENSOR will be held in conjunction with the XXIII Tranfrontier meeting on sensors and biosensors (TMSB 2018), which brings together scientists of the same field of the Euroregion between France and Spain (Catalonia, Languedoc-Roussillon, Midipyreenees) and areas adjoining.
