International Symposium on Olfaction and Electronic Nose (ISOEN 2011)

December 09, 2010


An increasing demand for electronic instruments that can mimic biological olfaction processes led to the development of electronic nose and tongue systems, that is, intelligent chemical sensor arrays for odor classification and/or gas discrimination. Such systems include the materials to build the sensing elements, the device architecture, and intelligent signal processing methods. Nanotechnology has enabled the development of handheld electronic olfaction systems that are promising non-invasive health monitoring tools, as well as environmental testing and quality control devices.

This conference brings together experts in various fields of engineering, from biomedical to environmental to materials engineering to the artificial intelligence community to discuss the state of the art and find solutions and trends for the future development of this exciting and cutting edge research and technology domain. This conference is the 14th ISOEN meeting sponsored by ISOCS and will attract the interest of pharmaceutical companies, the food and consumer goods industries as well as the (homeland) security and forensics agencies that would greatly benefit from the advances in artificial olfaction systems

The abstracts accepted for oral and poster presentation at this meeting will be published online by the American Institute of Physics (AIP), in a proceedings volume in the AIP Conference Proceedings Series, titled ISOEN: 14th International Symposium on Olfaction and Electronic Nose. Instructions for formatting the accepted abstracts in AIP's own proceedings format will be send to the authors' along with the abstract acceptance notification.

Selected contributions from the best papers at ISOEN, based on recommendations from the technical program committee, will be considered for publication (in the form of extended papers) in the special issue of the IEEE Sensors Journal on "Machine Olfaction", with guest editors: J.W. Gardner, K.C. Persaud, and R. Guttierez-Osuna.

The technical sessions will be held at Rockefeller University (, located at 1230 York Avenue, New York City.
