As follow up to their publication in the online meeting program, all ECS and IMCS abstracts will be published as planned in the ECS Digital Library. If for some reason, you would not like your abstract published in the archival record, please contact before Friday, April 3.

IMCS 2020 will have an extended program compared to prior IMCS Meetings due to enthusiastic response from the community.  We received over 635 abstracts for the meeting, therefore in order to accommodate the large number of oral talks, there will be parallel sessions for four days, and two parallel sessions on Sunday. 

Technical Program is now available at:

IMCS 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.

Location: Palais des congres de Montreal

Montreal, Quebec H2Z 1H5, Canada

The Palais des congrès de Montréal houses is a versatile modern facility for holding conventions, conferences, meetings, galas and exhibitions. It is located right in the heart of the city, Montréal’s convention centre, Palais des congrès de Montréal, is a unique award winning facility, renound for its artistic multi-coloured façade. Since 1983, the Palais des congrès de Montréal has welcomed more than 19 million people over the course of 7,600+ events. It offers 551,520 sq. ft. of event space for association meetings, trade shows, corporate events, and galas.

The Palais is located in the heart of four city districts, meaning that from here, visitors can easily access the Quartier International, Chinatown, Old Montréal or the downtown business core. At our doorsteps, you will find a large number of restaurants, museums and heritage attractions to entertain. There is also a large rooftop patio with breathtaking views of Montréal.

The Montréal-Trudeau International Airport is a 20-minute drive from the Palais des congrès. Of the 14,000 hotel rooms available in downtown Montreal, 4,000 enjoy weather-protected access to the Palais, many being our next-door neighbors.
