Keynote Speakers

This year, the Eurosensors conference presents three keynote speakers from industry. In order to acquire a broad overview of industrial sensor activities we invited players from one small, one medium and one large sensor-involved company.

BMW From BMW in Munich, the head of the Development Mechatronics/Driving Functions department, Dr. THOMAS TILLE, will present "Automotive Requirements for Sensors using Air-Quality Gas Sensors as an example".
Sensirion The medium sized company Sensirion AG located near Zurich in Switzerland has grown from a start-up to 170 employees today in 12 years, amongst others developing sensors for flow, humidity, and pressure. The managing director, Dr. FELIX MAYER will discuss innovation for commercial sensors.

Xensor Integration In Delfgauw, The Netherlands, the small sensor company Xensor Integration BV develops and produces client-specific integrated sensors, but also offers a series of standard silicon sensors. The managing director Dr. SANDER van HERWAARDEN will talk about in-company sensor research and development, also illustrated with one or two examples.

Together, these three keynote presentations will give insight in the requirements and needs for sensors to become commercially successful. The talks will be of interest not only for junior and senior sensor researchers, but also for R&D- and market officers from many branches of industry.

Invited Speakers

Eight scientists have been invited to present a paper on their topic of research. They have been selected from a list that was made up of nominations from TPC members. Invited talks receive a slot of 30 min. for the presentation.
