The basic idea of this initiative promoted during EUROSENSORS XII Conference in Southampton and successfully implemented at successive EUROSENSORS conferences has its roots on the necessity of keeping alive theoretical, technological and experimental aspects of materials, sensors, sensor systems, transducers, actuators and microsystems, independently on the dimensions of the structures.

The increasing interest in this field and the fast technological development and findings could cause to forget important aspects of the sensor science domain and overlook important theoretical achievements. As a consequence a sound balance between technology and sensor theory should always be sought in order to optimize a healthy growth of the knowledge in the sensor science domain. Stimulus coming from the nanotechnology development should also strongly push the sensor community towards new opportunities in terms of new principles and new sensors together with their interfaces to be applied in the meso- and nano-dimensionality field.

EUROSENSORS School addresses the fundamentals of sensor science technologies and discusses recent development/potential applications. The lectures are given at the graduate level and typically span from the scientific basic principles to the implementation in actual devices. They are intended for PhD students and young researchers in the field, researchers who have recently entered the interdisciplinary field of sensors and actuators, and for colleagues who want to brush up their fundamental knowledge in certain fields.

This year's School will take place on Sunday, September 4, 2011 at Megaron Athens International Conference Center (Conference Venue).
