Who should attend?

The Short Course is ideal for anyone with an interest in the technology of chemical sensors and is new to the field; for example, PhD students, researchers, technologists and industrialists. Short Courses organized by ISOCS are a unique combination of fundamental theory lectures and practical application demonstrations. They provide a head start into selected topics of current research and new developments in the area of chemical sensing and olfaction. Most lecturers will be present throughout the duration of the course. Ample opportunity is given for discussion and networking.

The Short Course is residential and the programme allows plenty of scope for networking with lecturers and attendees. Lectures take place in the morning, with the afternoon free for participants to network, consolidate their knowledge, or enjoy the outdoors. We encourage people to ski in the afternoon and we have amongst us, the organisers, some keen skiers. Discussion sessions and labs resume in the early evening before evening dinner.


See is located at the entrance to the Paznaun Valley close to Ischgl. The course takes place at the Hotel Mallaun located directly at the ski slopes of See.
