Abstract : Research efforts worldwide span diverse areas, including new materials such as nanotubes and nanofibers, miniaturization of electronics through nanotechnoloy, or integration of several sensors in artificial noses, to name only a few. Most of the time, the research results are reported, sometime as brief communications, at international conferences spread over different disciplines, such as materials science, electronic engineering, optics and photonics, nanotechnology, biochemistry and medicine, information technology, etc. It is therefore not very easy for young researchers to collect the most advanced background information. This Advanced Study Institute aims at providing young researchers with the most recent knowledge in sensing materials and sensor technologies, and with a unique opportunity to meet and discuss with outstanding specialists in these areas. The ASI will cover a wide range of materials and technologies encompassing semiconductors, self-assembled and biologically inspired nanomaterials, and photonic microsystems for the detection of various threats in applications spanning from environmental and health monitoring to security. Lectures on advanced theories and modeling of the sensing mechanisms will also be included.
