Following the success of the first 5 conferences, the 6th International Conference on Bio-Sensing Technology will continue to bring together leaders from industry and academia to exchange and share their experiences, present research results, explore collaborations and to spark new ideas, with the aim of developing new projects and exploiting new technology for bio-sensing applications.

This year one of the themes of the conference will be dedicated to bio-sensing technology for the internet-of-things.

The 1st International Conference in Bio-Sensing Technology took place in Bristol, UK in 2009. The success of this paved the way for the 2nd International Conference in Bio-Sensing Technology (Amsterdam, The Netherlands 2011). The 3rd one took place in Sitges, Spain in 2013, the 4th in Lisbon, Portugal in 2015 and the 5th in Riva del Garda, Italy. These conferences are held in the “in between years” of Elsevier’s World Congress on Biosensors that is also held every 2 years.

In 2011 we had more than 350 attendees and this has now grown to almost 400!
