This workshop aims to bring together European academic and industrial actors in the field of air and water quality monitoring. These 2 days are dedicated to highlight the state of the art in miniaturized sensors (micro- and nanotechnologies) for pollutants detection in air and in water, and/or associated embedded microsystems, both in academic prototypes and commercial products. The existing field measurement campaigns (urban and rural sites) will also be addressed. Special emphasis will be put on improvements for addressing the issues that generate measurement errors (calibration, cross-sensitivity, aging, ...)


  • Improvement of sensitive materials
  • Gas micro-nanosensors
  • Chemical microsensors in liquid phase
  • Communicating embedded microsystems
  • Calibration and cross-sensitivities (selectivity)
  • Trends on low-cost sensors deployment
  • Field measurement campaigns and current standards


Invited Speakers:

  • Laurent SPINELLE (Engineer R&D, INERIS Pôle CARA- Unit ASUR, France) : "Sensors and air quality :  an assessment of what can we expect today from low-cost sensors?"
  • Jean-Christophe MIFSUD (President and founder of RUBIX SI, Toulouse, France): "Sensors selectivity versus sensors orthogonality : The human being as the ultimate example of sensors fusion"
  • Adrian ARFIRE (Metrology Engineer, AirParif, Paris, France): "A Holistic Approach to Low-Cost Air Quality Sensor Evaluation: The AIRLAB Microsensors Challenge"
