Expression of Interest (EoI) to Host an Edition of the International Symposium on Sensor Science (I3S)

The I3S Selection Committee seeks Expressions of Interest (EoI) from universities/institutions/individual scholars to host an edition of the I3S Conference Series. There is no restriction in the geographic areas considered.

What is the I3S?

The International Symposium on Sensor Science (I3S) is a conference series dedicated to bring together scientists and leaders from different areas to discuss important recent developments in sensor science.

So far seven International Symposium on Sensor Science (I3S) have been held:

The 1st International Symposium on Sensor Science (I3S2003) in Paris, France
The 2nd International Symposium on Sensor Science (I3S2004) in Nanjing, China
The 3rd International Symposium on Sensor Science (I3S2005) in Juelich, Germany
The 4th International Symposium on Sensor Science (I3S2015) in Basel, Switzerland
The 5th International Symposium on Sensor Science (I3S2017) in Barcelona, Spain
The 6th International Symposium on Sensor Science (I3S2018) in Kenting, Taiwan

The 8th International Symposium on Sensor Science (I3S2020) will be held in Dresden, Germany, in June 2020.

Please note that the follow-on editions will not be restrained to the topics discussed in previous editions and, therefore, new and different topics within the sensor science field are sought.

Important Dates

From 2017, the I3S is organized annually. The I3S Selection Committee is accepting EoIs to organize editions from 2021 onwards.


Candidate institutions must provide arguments that they have the ability, facility, and capacity to organize and host a three-day symposium for 300–400 participants. This includes appropriate access to conference facilities, lodging, and transportation, as well as the ability to manage a range of supporting services (food services, internet services, and conference social events, etc.).

The candidate institutions and their local arrangements committee must have the means to support the costs of producing the conference through attendee registration, sponsoring, advertising and independent fundraising.

When necessary, and based on the input provided by the local host, MDPI staff will provide administrative support and will manage the website on Sciforum. MDPI staff will help to edit the abstracts, prepare the conference book, help to design the logos and banners for the conference website, flyers, posters, roll-ups, lanyards, conference bags, etc. following the style of previous I3S editions.

MDPI will promote the new conference edition on relevant MDPI journals and any other relevant communication channels.
