Upcoming MDPI Conferences (1)
26–28 May 2021 8th International Symposium on Sensor Science
Gathering of the interdisciplinary community is necessary for synergistic development in the field of sensors and improvement of life quality. Updating the community on the most recent works and building new links between disciplines enables discussion and new collaborations.
This conference will bring together leading researchers, from both academia and industry, to share their recent findings on a range of topics related to Bio- and Nano-Sensors, Bioelectronics, Chemical Sensors, Physical Sensors, Sensor Applications, and Smart Systems. It will focus on significant advances in the area of sensorics, enabling increased sensitivity, portability, and connectivity. Therefore, the target participants for the proposed conference are experts in the sensors community while, at the same time, the conference is expected to be mutually beneficial for young researchers and students.
We look forward to welcoming you at this exciting meeting in Dresden.

8 June 2020 First Workshop on Agents and Robots for Reliable Engineered Autonomy
Santiago de Compostela
Autonomous agents is a well-established area that has been researched for decades, both from a design and implementation viewpoint. Nonetheless, the application of agents in real world scenarios is largely adopted when logical distribution is needed, while still limited when physical distribution is necessary. In parallel, robots are no longer used only in industrial applications, but are instead being applied to an increasing number of domains, ranging from robotic assistants to search and rescue. Robots in these applications often benefit from (or require) some level (semi or full) of autonomy. Thus, multi-agent solutions can be exploited in robotic scenarios, considering their strong similarity both in terms of logical distribution and interaction among autonomous entities.
The autonomous behaviour responsible for decision-making should (ideally) be verifiable since these systems are expensive to produce and are often deployed in safety-critical situations. Thus, verification and validation are important and necessary steps towards providing assurances about the reliability of autonomy in these systems.
This workshop aims to bring together researchers from the autonomous agents, software engineering and the robotics communities, as combining knowledge coming from these two research areas may lead to innovative approaches that solve complex problems related with the verification and validation of autonomous robotic systems. Consequently, we encourage submissions that combine agents, robots, and verification, but we also welcome papers focused on one of these areas, as long as their applicability to the other areas is clear.
7–10 September 2020 12th Ibero-American Congress on Sensors (IBERSENSOR2020)
IBERSENSOR is a forum between the Latin American researchers, working in the field of development and application of sensors. This congress promotes the interaction among research groups, contributing to enhancing the scientific level of our countries in the area of sensors, an activity in rapid development with enormous interest and social impact worldwide. The official languages of the Congress are Portuguese, Spanish and English. IBERSENSOR covers a diversity of interdisciplinary areas under the umbrella of sensors, ranging from physics, chemistry, electrical engineering, nanoscience, and materials engineering to biosciences. In addition, it covers such aspects of KETs (key enabling technologies) as nanotechnology, micro- and nanoelectronics, advanced manufacturing technologies, advanced materials, industrial biotechnology and photonics. On behalf of the promoters of IBERSENSOR 2020, I would like to cordially invite you to participate in this meeting. We are looking forward to seeing you in Aveiro!
