Since the Montreal meeting will not take place, you are welcome to submit your presentation (either the exact same abstract or an updated version of it) to the 18th IMCS meeting, regardless if it was published in the ECS Digital Library: online meeting program, as all ECS and IMCS abstracts will be published in this Library.

All IMCS authors are strongly encouraged to resubmit your abstract when submission opens in September 2020. Due to the large number of abstracts involved, a re-submitted abstracts, or a modified abstract, or new abstracts are welcome. All authors will need to take this action to ensure that the presentation is submitted to their specifications to be included in the program in May 2021. We look forward to seeing you in Chicago next year!

You are also invited to submit a paper to Volume 1 of the Focus Issue collection of papers from 18th IMCS 2020, which is open May 4th.

A Volume 2 of the Focus Issue collecting papers from 18th IMCS will be available for submissions in May 2021. 

Currently accepted abstracts can submit to Volume 1 or Volume 2 of the focus issue, but not both. You may also submit a new topic to the call for papers which will open in July, and plan to submit a paper to Volume 2.  Currently accepted papers can be submitted to Volume 1 or Volume 2.  If you have a new abstract topic this should be included in Volume 2.

Technical Program

Multi-day, multi-session conference on all aspects of chemical sensors and biosensors will include: sensor design, function, response mechanism, miniaturization, manufacture, evaluation and characterization, modeling, applications alone or in sensing systems, and integration with computational and communication systems. Novel sensors and materials including metal oxides, gas, electrochemical, optical, acoustic, mechanical, magnetic, MEMS/NEMS, and bio-recognition are also included. Other topics include: Technology for manufacture of sensors at low cost, sensor supply chain development, and approaches to quality control for sensors and sensing materials. Novel use of nanotechnology and nano-engineering materials, including modeling of the performance of chemical and biosensor selectivity and sensitivity. Microfluidics and sensors embedded within systems and devices, liquid sensors, miniature instruments, artificial taste/olfaction sensor arrays along with sensor networks, signal processing, data fusion, efficient data transfer and in-field calibration methods. Special session will be held on Emerging Sensor Technology, the Internet of Things, Sensors in Agriculture, and Wearable Sensors on Flexible Substrates. Papers on the application of sensors, sensor systems, and micro-instruments to medical, health, athletics, environmental, home, energy, safety, manufacturing, transportation, industrial, security, space, and defense applications are also encouraged.
