“You know, yesterday at a session I heard a couple interesting ideas that I will definitely try now in my lab. If I hadn't come here - I usually go to my society’s Conference on Chemical Sensors – I wouldn’t have learned those things. This conference is so good in this respect – it connects people from different communities with interests in sensing.”
-From a coffee break conversation at the IEEE SENSORS 2011 Conference, Limerick, Ireland
