18th International Symposium on Olfaction and Electronic Nose

26 – 29 May 2019 – Fukuoka, Japan

ISOEN 2019:

The International Symposium on Olfaction and Electronic Nose (ISOEN) is the world’s premiere technical conference in artificial chemoreception (olfaction and taste). ISOEN 2019 provides a forum for scientists, engineers and practitioners to share their latest findings, innovations and products in the area of artificial chemoreception.


ISOEN 2019 will be held at ACROS Fukuoka close to Fukuoka airport. Fukuoka is an energetic city and the center of core city of politics, economy, culture and fashion in Kyushu located in western Japan.

Topics of interest:

ISOEN emphasizes interdisciplinary approaches addressing all aspects of odor and taste measurement, from basic theory to applications.  Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Odor sampling: headspace analysis, dynamic sampling, pre-concentration and storage
  • Chemical sensors: gas, biosensors, ion-selective, optical
  • Sensor systems: electronic noses, electronic tongues, micro-spectrometers, IoT
  • Data analysis: signal processing, pattern recognition, chemometrics, AI, deep learning
  • Industrial applications: quality control, food safety, medical diagnostics, environmental monitoring
  • Robotic systems: robots with chemical senses, drone
  • Scent presentation: olfactometry, olfactory displays, human interface, virtual reality
  • Odor/gustatory perception: evaluation of odor intensity/impression, cross-modal effect, sensory test
  • ECG/EEG/NIRS measurement
  • Bio-engineering: cell-based olfactory sensors, receptor-based sensors, bio-inspired algorithms

The Conference exhibit area will provide your company or organization with the opportunity to inform and display your latest products, services, equipment, books, journals, and publications to attendees from around the world. For further information, contact Brianna Orr, .
