ISOCS advances the research and application of olfaction and chemical sensing.

ISOEN 2019

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.

Guidelines for hosting ISOEN

ISOCS is organizing the ISOEN conference biannualy. Future editions are planned to be hosted in Europe (2021), the Americas (2023) and Asia (2025).

Host organizations are invited to send in their bid for hosting the next ISOEN conference one month in advance of the current ISOEN conference. The winning bid will be selected and announce at the current ISOEN conference.

In order to provide a smooth organization and help the hosts, we have put together guidelines for the bid with details on the process and the information required.
