This is the 24th anniversary edition of the World Congress on Biosensors and we continue to evolve, adapt and grow into new roles to serve the analytical needs of a rapidly changing society. Advances in telecommunications, expert systems and distributed diagnostics are prompting us to question the conventional ways we deliver healthcare, while robust industrial sensors are facilitating new paradigms in R&D and production. Personalisation of everything from medicine to environmental control, is giving new impetus to consumer choice and ownership of information, and will inevitably generate new payment structures and business models. Moreover, a deeper understanding of the bio/electronic interface leads us towards new horizons in areas such as bionics, power generation and computing. Wearable, mobile and integrated sensors are becoming common place, but most current products have taken the easy path of incorporating physical sensors for parameters such as temperature, pressure, orientation or position. There is still a glaring absence of suitably robust and convenient commercial biosensors for body chemistries and ecosystems, and therein lies the real opportunities for progress. We are a still-emerging technology that is fuelling scientific discovery and underpinning new products to enhance the length and quality of life.
Always in a new country and always with fresh plenary speakers, we aim to reflect the latest and the best in Biosensors. This three-day event, organised by Elsevier in association with Biosensors & Bioelectronics, consists of two daily plenary presentations from leading figures in the field, followed by four parallel sessions, comprising a rigorously refereed selection of submitted papers.
Using Elseviers new app, you can browse the scientific programme by days, topic or speaker, create your own personal programme, locate rooms and exhibitor stands on the floorplans, and more. Before first use, you'll need to download the latest conference data and then afterwards, you can use the app offline.
