ECSA-9 is closed. Thank you for your participation.

The ECSA-9 award winners have been announced at https://ecsa-9.sciforum.net/#event_awards.

The accepted proceedings papers will probably be published as one dedicated volume in MDPI Engineering Proceedings journal (ISSN 2673-4591) after the conference.

All participants of ECSA-9 are also welcome to submit the extended work to the Sensors (Impact Factor 3.847) conference Special Issue with a 20% discount on the article processing charges.

Welcome from the Chairs

Welcome from the Conference Chairs of the 9th International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications

We are pleased to announce the 9th International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications. After the success of the eight editions from 2014 to 2021, this year edition will focus on eight thematic areas where sensors are changing science:

Posters can be presented without an accompanying proceedings paper and will be available online on this website during and after the e-conference.

Participants will have the opportunity to examine, explore and critically engage with issues and advances in these areas. We hope to facilitate discussions and exchange within the community. Best contributions in each session will be collected and brought to a live event broadcast on Webinars through zoom. A student competition will also be held online for selected students' contributions (students as correspondences) exhibited in the Student Session. For more details of the competition please click https://sciforum.net/conference/ecsa-9#awards.

This event will solely be an online proceeding that allows participation from all over the world with no concerns of travel and related expenditures. This type of conference is particularly appropriate and useful because research concerned with sensors is progressing rapidly. An electronic conference provides a platform for rapid and direct exchanges about the latest research findings and novel ideas. The participation, as well as the "attendance" of this online conference, is free of charge.

The 9th International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications is sponsored by MDPI and the scientific journal Sensors (ISSN 1424-8220, IF 3.847). The conference proceedings papers and presentations will be available on https://sciforum.net/event/ecsa-9 for discussion during 1-15 November 2022 and will be published in the journal Engineering Proceedings.

Extended and expanded versions of conference proceedings papers can be submitted to Special Issue "Selected Papers from the 9th International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications" in the journal Sensors after the conference, with a 20% discount on the Article Processing Charges.

Sensors is an Open Access publication journal of MDPI in the field of the science and technology of sensors and biosensors.

We hope the community will share this enthusiasm and help making this 9th edition a success—for many to come in the future.

The Chairs of the 9th International Electronic Conference on Sensors and Applications.
