Taking inspiration…

"Seeing the diversity of the field illuminated from so many angles… There were outstanding discussions throughout… Lots of intermingling evident… A great conference!"

Delegate, Sensors Day 2015


Joining the dots…

"There were many occasions where tangential interests emerged between two seemingly unconnected fields, e.g. image analysis algorithms to track people, or cars, developed in the Engineering departments could be very useful to our work in organism imaging."

Delegate, Sensors Day 2015


The next generation…

"The student presentations were particularly inspiring, they were of outstanding quality.  I was impressed to see what students could achieve in the team."

Delegate, Sensors Day 2015
