Welcome to the "SENSO Conference" website
The Internet of Things (IoT) is indicated as the next frontier delimiting the increased pervasion of micro-electronics in everyday life, so large to dwarf the present smart-phone market. In this scenario, countless electronic objects will act as intelligent and communicating nodes inside larger and powerful networks. No matter if such networks will be aimed to industrial, domotics, security, healthcare, transportation, consumer or any other possible application domain, all such objects have to undergo three common requirements:
- They need to be Smart, containing enough intelligence and sensors to perform required operations at the lowest possible energy consumption
- They must be able to wireless Communicate with other nodes or remote center in their network, exchanging information and receiving instructions in a reliable and secured way. That also implies that they need to cope with present and future secure communication protocols.
- They must be Autonomous for many years, meaning able to harvest enough energy from the environment to prevent cost for battery replacement or even the need for a battery at all: wiring or conventional batteries can’t be an option anymore.
This year, the «SENSO» workshop will take place from November 16th to 18th, 2016, at the «Centre Microélectronique de Provence» in Gardanne (Aix-en-Provence area, France). Organized by ARCSIS, the fourth edition of this workshop will be dedicated to «Sensors, Energy harvesting, wireless Network and Smart Objects».
The aim of this event is to provide a more integrated vision of the way IoT smart sensor nodes work and communicate, from the way they are wirelessly powered to their final deployment into a network for an actual working environment. That will make an unmissable event for all the different actors to meet each other and foster new exciting opportunities.
For an increased conference effectiveness, four main axes of discussion have been identified:
- Sensing devices, aiming to provide an update on the advances in this field, to address and discuss the most promising solutions regarding sensitive nanomaterials, MEMS, NEMS, nanosensors, chemical sensors, biosensors, optical sensors and application domains.
- Energy Harvesting and Management, aiming to review effective and original ideas for such smart objects to effectively and reliably ensure self-powering on the long term and to illustrate ideas and techniques to carry harvested power into actual operational electronic objects.
- Wireless Network, aiming to describe the global challenges, including simulation, protocol and security aspects.
- Applications, aiming to share solutions (or needs) for actual applications, including the way such objects work together and the infrastructure framework needed to turn such smart networks into actual services to benefit final users.
