Event description

Description

There is a significant global commercial interest in wearable sensor platforms today for a range of applications. Harvesting chemical and biochemical data from the body using wearables will emerge in the next 5-10 years which will open up new applications for wearables. Involving physiologists, clinicians, chemists and engineers in discussions around wearable devices will help identify new applications and opportunities that could drive the development of epidermal sensors.

The scientific focus of this workshop will be around the state of the art in wearables for skin diagnostics as well as the future opportunities and needs for epidermal and wearable sensing platforms for the understanding and assessment of skin physiology. Perspectives and the latest research from various academic, clinical and industrial experts will be presented. The workshop is intended to be a networking opportunity for any research groups or companies working in this space.
