11th Advanced Study Course on Optical Chemical Sensors (ASCOS)

21 July 2019 18:30 - 28 July 2019 16:00, Bertinoro FC, Italy

ASCOS (Advanced Study Course on Optical Chemical Sensors) is an European initiative to establish an education, discussion and contact platform for young researchers working in the strongly growing field of optical chemical sensors, besides the traditional conferences. ASCOS is being held as a biennial event, each time in a different European country.
The idea behind ASCOS is to bring together Europe's bright young (future) scientists, coming from all imaginable fields of expertise related to optical/chemical sensors, to learn from selected tutors and from each other in a relaxed atmosphere. ASCOS covers all the different methods of optical chemical sensors and related fields and provides a platform to exchange ideas and experiences, while having a good time.

ASCOS attempts to reach the ideal of a tutorial course - first teaching theory and basics on a level every participant can follow and then making the participant use this information in a practical application - by combining two main components:
A number of invited Tutorial Lectures, focusing on basic principles of sensor technology, held by invited lecturers. 
A Project Group Work, using the input from the course and the special knowledge of each participant to find a feasible way to solve an analytical problem with optical chemical sensors. Small, mixed groups of 5 to 6 people are assigned a problem, which has to be solved and presented at the end of the course.​
The 11th ASCOS is taking place at the University Center Bertinoro, Bertinoro (FC), Italy.
