GOSPEL BioTechno Workshop 2008

From Biological Olfaction to Sensor Technology
Skokloster Wärdshus, Sweden 25-26 February 2008

The GOSPEL BioTechno Workshop 2008 is a meeting-place for the global olfaction and chemical sensing research community.

This two-day workshop will bring participants up to date with the latest understanding of biological olfaction. From receptor systems to data processing, the workshop will look at the implications this has for new sensor technologies.

Presentations by key speakers from the global olfaction community will summarise four years of successful biomimetic research and artificial olfaction development within the GOSPEL project.

Together these speakers will show the state of the art in artificial olfaction and highlight the most promising areas for future development.

The event will attract a wide range of researchers from artificial olfaction, chemical sensing and experimental biology.

It will also be open to those interested in looking at new ideas in gas sensing, and how these can be implemented in hardware for real world application.

Programme & presenters

The event runs from 9am on 25 February 2008 until 6pm on 26 February 2008.

The event features a range of leading international speakers from the areas of artificial olfaction, chemical sensing and experimental biology. These include:
