Advances and Applications in Biosensing, Sensor Power, and Sensor R&D to be Covered at Sensors Global Summit

Industry and academic leaders from Cisco, FDA, National Cancer Institute, Northeastern University, Qualcomm, Stanford University, Texas Instruments, and more to present in La Jolla this November 


Needham, MA, July 27, 2015 – The Knowledge Foundation is pleased to present its Sensors Global Summit, which will take place November 10-11, 2015 at the Marriott San Diego La Jolla in La Jolla, CA.  The event’s international faculty of key industry and academic leaders will cover the latest technological advancements of real-world applications within three conference tracks on Biosensors, Sensor Power, and Sensor R&D.


“By 2020, the exponential growth of the sensors market and the demand for next generation integrated systems is expected to reach $85 billion,” said Craig Wohlers, General Manager of The Knowledge Foundation.  “With applications in areas such as healthcare, the environment, industry, security, and defense, biosensors alone will account for $25 billion of this market growth.”


Sensors Global Summit features four plenary keynote presentations, which will bring together attendees from all three conference tracks.  Tuesday morning’s plenary session will include presentations from Dr. Ahmed Busnaina, Distinguished University Professor and Director of Northeastern University's NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center for High-Rate Nanomanufacturing, and Peter Mason, Director of Cisco's Applications Platform Group.  Dr. Busnaina will cover a new high-rate nanoscale printing process for sensors, energy, and materials applications, while Mr. Mason will discuss mobile experience application platforms for the Internet of Things and Internet of Everything.


Wednesday morning’s plenary keynote session will give attendees the opportunity to learn about personalization in sensor-rich environments, in vitro and in vivo nano-enabled diagnostic sensing platforms, and the successful translation and future applications of these platforms in personalized medicine and cancer.  Presentations will be given by Martha G. Russell, Stanford University’s mediaX Executive Director, and Dr. Christopher M. Hartshorn, Program Manager of the National Cancer Institute’s Office of Cancer Nanotechnology Research.


In addition to the four plenary keynote presentations, Sensors Global Summit will offer more than twenty additional presentations on biosensor commercialization, energy harvesting and battery technologies for sensor applications, and the latest research in design and application of integrated sensors systems.
