Sensors Expo adds nanotechnology, wireless sessions


Peterborough, NH— Nanotechnology and wireless have been the two most-requested topics by attendees scheduled to attend this fall's 17th annual Sensors Expo & Conference , Sept. 23-26, 2002, at Boston's World Trade Center. As a result, the show's organizers recently added two sessions covering those subjects.

The show's technical education program will be taught by instructors from industry, government, and academia, who will offer sessions on microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), nanotechnology, smart sensors, data acquisition, wireless and tethered telecommunications, as well as educating visitors on embedded, medical, manufacturing and wearable technologies. These experts in designing and putting sensors to work are expected to keep conference attendees well informed.

'We've introduced several new conference sessions to our program this year, and have seen great interest in the topics of nanotechnology and wireless. In fact, anything that has to do with wireless has attracted the greatest interest,' says Pam Roth, Sensors Expo & Conference's conference director. "The three sessions we've added have been extremely well received.'

The three news sessions are:

  • 'Using Nanotechnology to Develop the Next Generation of Electronic Sensors;'

  • 'The Wonderful World of Wireless Sensing Panel;' and

  • 'Solving the Battery Problem: The Impact of Photovoltaic Technology on Future Design of Wireless Sensors.'

Another new part of Sensors Expo's technical conference, Business Summit, Sept. 25, is designed for engineers that have recently entered management. This event will present real-world experiences delivered by sensors industry professionals, who have dealt with mergers and acquisitions, business intelligence, marketing strategies and large scale project management.

The conference's R&D Day is scheduled for Sept. 26. It will include moderated panels that promote discussion about: trends and challenges in the sensors industry; biosensor and bioMEMS/NEMS development; the trip from sensor to boardroom; everything about wearable technology; and finding the right source of funding.
