The Sensor+Test Conferences are held biannually in the odd years, traditionally complementing the Sensor+Test trade fair at the Nürnberg Exhibition Centre. This year, the show will take place June 7-9. Thus, the three international conferences, SENSOR, OPTO, and IRS², will again offer a comprehensive overview of the state of the art in research and development in the areas of sensor technology, optical and infrared measurement. The complete agenda for all three conferences is available on the web. About 230 papers and posters are being offered during the three-day sessions.
The Sensor+Test Conferences 2011 will start jointly on the first day of the fair with an opening lecture by Prof. Dr. E. Göbel, President of the National Metrology Institute (Physikalisch-Technischen Bundesanstalt) in Braunschweig, on the subject of “Fundamental Constants and the New International System of Units (SI).” Also, the AMA Association’s 10,000-Euro SENSOR Innovation Award will again be presented during the opening ceremony.
