2nd International Conference on Bio-Sensing Technology 2011

10-12 October 2011, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Registration now Open! Click here

Bio-sensing technologies are of increasing importance in healthcare, agri-food, environmental and security sectors, and this is reflected in the continued growth of global markets for such technologies. This two and a half day Conference will provide a forum for accessing to the most up-to-date and authoritative knowledge from both commercial and academic worlds, sharing best practice in the field as well as learning about case studies of successfully integrated bio-sensing technologies. The meeting will provide an opportunity to highlight recent developments and to identify emerging and future areas of growth in this exciting field.
Following the success of the inaugural conference, the second International Conference on Bio-Sensing Technology will bring together leaders from industry and academia to exchange and share their experiences, present research results, explore collaborations and to spark new ideas, with the aim of developing new projects and exploiting new technology for bio-sensing applications.
The conference will include:
  • Presentations from leading specialists highlighting new opportunities in bio-sensing technologies
  • An opportunity to share best practice in the integration of technologies for bio-sensing
  • An exhibition of leading-edge, commercial technology
  • A poster forum for unveiling new research ideas and concepts
  • Networking opportunities
  • A strong industry focus with companies presenting their technologies

Themes

The four sessions of the conference will be:
1. Biomarkers
Development and discovery of new biological molecules and systems for integration in bio-sensing applications. For example, novel molecules integrated with silicon components at the micron and nano-scales; biological targets for sensing technologies, for example new disease markers that can be used as a target for applications such as rapid diagnostics. The use of biomarkers also includes aspects of immobilization and stabilization.
2. Sensor technology
Novel sensing technologies developed for bio-sensing applications including optical, electrochemical, piezoelectric or magnetic measurements; novel sensors for bio-imaging. Micro and nano fabrication technologies used to develop and manufacture bio/sensors.
3. Instrumentation and data processing
Challenges associated with measuring signals generated by biosensor technologies to enable the utilization of bio-sensing systems. Potential solutions relating to the development of new instrumentation, signal and image processing, data analysis and communications.
4. System Integration
Issues associated with integrating technologies to produce a working bio-sensing system. This could include technical interfacing challenges such as sample introduction and handling through to aspects of commercialisation and adoption of bio-sensing technology into chosen markets.

Poster session forum

In the poster session forum selected poster presenters will be invited to provide a brief oral review of their poster. Presenters will be selected to cover topical themes reflecting one aspect of novel technologies that could be impinge on future commercial markets. This will then provide the introduction for a debate between representatives from the academia, industry and government and other bodies.
