Visitors Discuss the Development in Research and Industry

The AMA Association for Sensors and Measurement has organized the AMA Conferences, SENSOR und IRS², for the 30th of May to the 1st of June in Nuremberg. Representatives from science and industry will present current research results from sensor and measuring technology. The SENSOR+TEST 2017 invites all participants to take part in the Innovation Dialog at the trade fair.

Berlin, 6 March 2017 - The AMA Conferences, SENSOR and IRS², are considered to be international networking platforms for experts in sensors and measurement. Specialists from science and industry are to present their latest R&D results. They invite all parties to a technical discussion.

The AMA Conferences are directed by Professors Gerald Gerlach (TU Dresden) and Reinhard Lerch (University of Erlangen-Nuremberg). A special highlight this year is the plenary talk by Alfons Dehé from Infineon Technologies, Munich. His presentation will deal mainly with silicon MEMS microphones, emphasizing the great efforts that have been made in regard to sensitivity, signal-to-noise ratio, and the improvement of the reliability of present technical solutions. These new microphones already lead the worldwide smartphone market. Other highlights at this year’s AMA Conferences are gas and biosensors, again underlining the growing potential in this area.
“We also look forward to the special session, Recent Developments in the IR Industry,” commented Gerlach on the conference agenda 2017. “Various enterprises will be presenting the latest scientific-technological results of their research and development efforts in six presentations.” Conference visitors can also expect talks about trends and developments in the area of sensor principles, modelling, and simulation as well as novel sensor applications in industry.

The internationally oriented poster sessions in the congress area of the AMA Conferences will provide further information on cross-disciplinary research approaches. The parallel SENSOR+TEST trade fair with its 600 exhibitors from Germany and abroad invites the conference participants to come and network.

The AMA Conferences 2017 will be held from 30 May to 1 June 2017 at the Nuremberg Exhibition Center, “NCC Mitte” (Middle). The detailed agenda for the AMA Conferences 2017, further information, and registration can be found at:
