IEEE IMS NSW Chapter, Sydney 3rd Annual Workshop on Sensors, Instrumentation and Measurements: Theory and Applications


Purpose: The IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society New South Wales Chapter would like to invite researchers, scientists, engineers and practitioners to discuss and present their latest research findings, ideas, developments and applications in the area of Sensors, Instrumentation and Measurement Technologies and their applications in all areas of everyday life.

Objective: The objective of the workshop is to bring together industry and academia to learn about the work of fellow colleagues, share ideas and vision about the present challenges and opportunities in a number of industry sectors, and identify common areas for collaboration.

Sensors, measurements and instrumentation are core to everyday life ranging from healthcare, to transport, energy, manufacturing, and food. The fields of sensors, measurements and instrumentation are strongly cross-disciplinary and there is a need for interactions among researchers, scientists, engineers and practitioners to discuss the technology, solutions, and applications of these fields. This Annual Workshop will provide opportunities for scientists and engineers from different disciplines to share their up-to-date knowledge and discuss their research findings and activities in these fields for the further improvement of quality of life.

In the regular sessions there will be an opportunity for participants to present their research works and during the workshop there will be many opportunities for networking.

Schedule: A tentative schedule is as follows:

9:30 – 10:00 Registration and Morning Tea

10:00 – 10:15 Opening Remarks
