NCSR to Transducers at Barcelona, June 2013

A delegation from the NCSR travelled to Barcelona, Catalunya, Spain, last month. Four group members made the journey to Transducers 2013, where a total of five NCSR posters were presented. As a member of the Technical Programme Committee, Dr Jens Ducrée of the BDI chaired a session on Bio-Microsystems along with Prof. Shuichi Shoji (Department of Electronic and Photonic Systems, Department of Electrical Engineering and Bioscience, Waseda University, Japan). Dr Ducrée is principal investigator for Microfluidic Platforms at the Biomedical Diagnostics Institute (BDI) and Associate Professor for Microsystems in the School of Physical Sciences at the Dublin City University (DCU).

Transducers 2013 was the 17th International Conference on Solid-State Sensors, Actuators and Microsystems. It took place from 16th-20th June 2013 and was hosted by the Centro de Convenciones Internacional de Barcelona (CCIB), in association with the Electron Devices Society (EDS), Elsevier, and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The chairs were J. R. Morante (Department of Electronics, University of Barcelona) and Christofer Hierold (ETH Zurich).

The DCU presented one talk and 5 posters at the Conference:
