Gas sensors based on semiconducting metal oxides: basic understanding & application fields

Tübingen (Germany), 7th to 9th of June 2015


Workshop organizers:

Nicolae Barsan1, Kengo Shimanoe2 and Udo Weimar1

1. - University of Tübingen, Germany 

2. - Kyushu University, Japan


The workshop is the fourth in a series of Gospel workshops ( dedicated to the R&D activities in the field of semiconducting metal oxide based gas sensors. It will be organized by the Universities of Kyushu and Tübingen, over two full days – 8th and 9th of June – and will be preceded by a social, come-together event on the 7th of June. 

The previous three workshops demonstrated that the idea to bring together experts from both academia and industry and provide plenty of time for discussions was very fruitful. Therefore, also this edition will keep the very successful format of combining 2 key notes (each 40 min + 20 min discussion) and 4 invited talks (each 25 min and 10 min discussion) with regular oral contributions (each 15 min and 5 min discussion) and poster presentations. As usual, we are ready to host an exhibition for companies active in the field.

At the workshop we will also discuss the opportunity of transforming it in a biennial conference run by a Steering Committee that will take place alternately in Asia and Europe.
