Dear Colleagues and Friends,

it is a pleasure for me to welcome you to Lecce!

I would like to deliver my warm greetings and heartfelt welcome to all Participants of  the XXXV EUROSENSORS Conference.

The Conference will provide an opportunity for the presentation of updated results related to both theoretical and applied research in the field of Sensors, Micro-Nanosystems, etc.,  bringing together scientists from academic institutions and industry and promoting professional interactions between them. Furthermore, the Conference has also included a one day Tutorial Course on emerging and key arguments on correlation between Environment and Health and the role of Sensors technologies.

In this XXXV edition of the EUROSENSORS Conference I would be very glad if we could reach a record number of abstracts and participants, usually already very high in all Eurosensors editions. The TPC will do the best for selecting high quality paper in order to guarantee a high quality technical program.  

The Organising Committee would be very happy like to express to the potential participants deep appreciation for the scientific response which would demonstrates how strong is the interest in the field of Sensors and related technologies. It is hoped that during the Conference fruitful interactions among participants and new cultural proposals can grow up for the positive development of the Conference and for the intellectual growth of all the participants.

A very attractive and stimulating social program will be also set up which will start with a welcome reception and registration party on Sunday evening at  the “Convitto Palmieri and San Francesco della Porta” and it will continue on Monday evening with the Concert at “Apollo Theatre”; for this concert you will have a very nice surprise because for the first time we will have the so called “Eurosensors Band”. On Tuesday evening the Conference Gala Dinner will take place at “Augustus Resort”, a beautiful place facing on the Adriatic sea in Santa Cesare Terme.

Many thanks go out to the members of the TPC, the Organising Committee, the National Committee, the Local Organising Committee, the Eurosensors Steering Committee for their input and support. Particular thanks to the Puglia Region, the Province Government and the Major of Lecce for the local support and the great interest demonstrated in hosting the event.

Only those who have experienced the organisation of such an important event and its related actions will understand how much human effort goes in to the preparation for these four days of intense activity.

I hope you will take this opportunity to visit one of the most attractive Italian town.

Welcome to Lecce and enjoy the Conference!
