University of Cambridge Horizon Seminar:

A Sensory World: novel sensor technologies and applications
Tuesday 20 March 2007
Kaetsu Centre, New Hall, Cambridge

From self-parking cars to diagnostic tools for cancer, sensor technology is shaping our future. Indeed, some claim that sensors will change our world in this decade in the way microprocessors did in the 1980s and the Internet in the 1990s.

The Horizon seminar - A Sensory World: novel sensor technologies and applications - will showcase a broad selection of sensor technologies and systems that have been developed at Cambridge. The Seminar will cover a wide range of sensor perspectives from the basic technology and science of sensor design, applications for diverse situations and environmental conditions, and the challenges associated with rendering meaning from sensor networks or multiple heterogeneous sensing assets. Examples of cutting-edge applications will be discussed by both academic researchers and industry speakers.

The seminar will take place on Tuesday 20th March 2007 at New Hall, Cambridge and will provide delegates with a rich diversity of insights, perspectives and experiences. A drinks reception will close the event providing further opportunities to network in an informal setting.
