About the Event. The 5th Annual International Conference on Sensors and Electronic Instrumentation Advances (SEIA' 2019) is a forum for presentation, discussion, and exchange of information and latest research and development results in both theoretical and experimental research in sensors, transducers and their related fields. It brings together researchers, developers, and practitioners from diverse fields including international scientists and engineers from academia, research institutes, and companies to present and discuss the latest results in the field of sensors and measurements. After successful events in 2015 (Dubai, UAE), 2016 (Barcelona, Spain), 2017 (Moscow, Russia), 2018 (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) the SEIA' 2019 will take place on Canary Islands (Tenerife), Spain, 25-27 September 2019.
The SEIA conference is focusing any significant breakthrough and innovation in Sensors, Electronics, Measuring Instrumentation and Transducers Engineering Advances and its applications with broadest concept. The conference is organized by the International Frequency Sensor Association (IFSA), a professional association, which celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2019.
Next to all the technical subjects, a major function of this series of events lies in the opportunities for meeting colleagues. This aspect of our IFSA event has always been giving high marks and we continue to pay much attention to it. Coffee breaks, welcome cocktail reception and excursions are the best opportunity for social contacts. Finally, the quality of the memorable Gala Dinner, organized on Thursday evening will make your stay on Tenerife into a very pleasant souvenir.

'Nanotechnology and Engineering Nanomaterials: Fundamentals, Knowledge and Applications' - a Pre-Conference Tutorial
Date: 24 September 2019 (14:00 - 18:00)
Overview. The objective of this short course is to provide insight into fundamental understanding as well as diverse range of processes used in the development of the engineering nanomaterials, which finds vast technological applications. The properties of a particular material differ from that of the conventional bulk due to its unique features at nanoscale. Again, these properties differ based on the particle size, morphology and composition. These nanomaterials of unique features have been used for various applications and not limited to colloidal dispersions, nanoemulsions for pharmaceutical purposes, biopolymers, metallic particles, antireflection coatings, sensors for cancer diagnosis, magnetic nanoparticles for medical imaging, energy storage materials to enhance heat transfer, nanoclusters for hydrogen storage, electronanocatalyst for fuel cells, and catalyst for wastewater treatment. The preparation methods of the nanomaterial decide their properties or have proper control on the morphology leading to the required properties of the end products and their subsequent applications.
This tutorial will deal with the fundamentals as well as synthesis methods that are most commonly used and the latest methods which are under intense research currently. This course will be beneficial to students of all levels (undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral fellows), professors and young researchers of wide discipline such as physics, chemistry, chemical engineering, energy engineering, material science, environmental engineering, etc. and also industry persons.
Certificate & Gift
The tutorial attendees will get the IFSA Certificates of course attendance and book 'Designing Nanosensors for Chemical and Biological Applications' by Nada F. Atta, 264 p., hardcover, published by IFSA Publishing, S.L.:

'Advances in Sensors: Reviews', Book Series,Vol. 7: Call for Chapters
About Book Series. Today our ‘Advances in Sensors: Reviews’ Book Series, published by IFSA Publishing (Barcelona, Spain) has become very popular. The first volume of Book Series was published in 2012, and since 2016 the ‘Advances in Sesnors: Reviews’ (volume 4) is publishing as an open access book.
The idea of publication of Book Series 'Advances in Sensors: Reviews', Vol. 5 was accepted by all sensor community with a great enthusiasm. We have got many high quality chapters from different sensor areas, and publish two volumes (5 and 6) of the book in 2018.
The Vol. 5 of this Book Series contains 22 chapters written by 79 contributors-experts from universities, research centres and industry from 15 countries: Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Slovenia, Spain, Ukraine and USA, who did also publish their research results in sensors related, established journals including ‘Sensors & Transducers’ journal published by IFSA. This volume contains information at the cutting edge of sensor research and related topics from the following three areas: Physical Sensors, Sensor Networks and Remote Sensing. Coverage includes current developments in various sensors, sensor instrumentation and applications.
The Vol. 6 of this Book Series contains 21 chapters written by 94 contributors-experts from universities and research centres, from 21 countries: Argentina, Austria, Brazil, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovenia, Switzerland, Thailand, UK and USA. This volume is devoted to various chemical sensors (sensors for various gases, nucleic acids, organic compounds, nanosensors, etc.) and biosensors.
Similar to the Vol. 4, two new volumes are also published as Open Access Books in order to significantly increase the reach and impact of these volumes, as well as to increase the authors’ citations. The books are available in two formats: electronic (pdf) with full-colour illustrations and print (paperback).
Based on the great feedback, which we have got from our readers and authors after publication Vol. 5 and 6, we have decided to publish the Vol. 7 in Autumn 2019.
