Ibersensor I (1998)
- The first Iberoamerican Congress on Sensors and Biosensors (IberSensor´98) took place at the University of Havana, Cuba, on November 9-13, 1998. It was organized by the Physics Faculty and the Institute for Materials and Reagents with the cooperation of other Cubans research centers.
- The Congress was sponsored by Havana University, the Cuban Physics Society, the Latinoamerican Physics Center (CLAF) and the Sensors and Biosensors Group of The Autonomous University of Barcelona
- The congress presented the recent scientific and technological results of our region on all aspects of the theory, design, fabrication and applications of Sensors and Biosensors.
- The scientific program was conformed by invited lectures, oral and poster contributions, informal talks about the works of the different laboratories and groups of Iberoamerica, a round table about applications of sensors and biosensors and visits to different Cubans research centers. A parallel social program was conformed with visits to historical, cultural and tourist interest places.
The main topics, which coincided with the sections of the Conference, were:
- Theory and Design of Sensors and Biosensors.
- New Materials and Technologies.
- Physical Sensors.
- Chemical Sensors.
- Applications of Sensors and Biosensors.
