The rise of sensors and electronics that conform to soft and complex surfaces has grown exponentially, accelerated by new applications for the Internet of Things, wearables and medical devices. Fabricated on flexible plastic substrates or printed and woven into fabrics, these technologies offer advantages such as mechanical flexibility, weight savings, and lower profiles—opening up opportunities to apply sensors and electronics in novel ways not achievable in the past. Recent estimates report the total market for printed/flexible sensors to be $8 billion of the $340 billion flexible electronics market by 2025.
Sensors Expo is reaching out to industry experts to speak at the future-looking, full-day symposium titled: Challenges and Application Opportunities for Printed, Flexible, Stretchable and Functional Fabric Sensors, Sensor-Based Systems, and Electronics, June 22, 2020.
The event is co-located with the Sensors Expo & Conference, June 22-24, 2020 in San Jose, CA. The event is expected to draw 8,000 attendees who design with sensors, sensor systems and sensor applications.
The symposium will explore the recent innovations, exciting new product introductions, and real-world applications.
Topics of interest include:
- Technologies and IoT and wearable systems applications addressing sensors, batteries, memory/logic, packaging and interconnects
- 3-D Printing of sensors and sensor packaging
- Infrastructure of materials, manufacturing and test systems
- Commercialization challenges and recommended approaches to overcome
Interested speakers should submit a 200-word abstract describing the session, including specific takeaways for attendees to Symposium Chair Roger Grace, President of Roger Grace Associates, at [email protected]. The deadline for submissions is March 20, 2020.
