Welcome to the 4th International Workshop on MEMS and Sensor System 2020 (IWMS 2020) in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The International Workshop on MEMS and Sensor System originated in 2017, which had been known as the First International Conference on MEMS and Sensor system was held in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Nowadays, MEMS Sensor community has experienced immense growth in the science and technology of miniaturization, as well as commercialization. The IWMS events come at a time when MEMS technology has evolved into a key enabler for smart products and the Internet of Things (IoT).

With the advent of globalization and rapid technological advances in the 21st Century, we facing increasing demands to able to effectively harness and exploit these challenges for economic growth. Recognizing the massive growth potential of MicroElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS) and sensors in the IoT applications based on several advanced properties such as low power consumption, low cost, and fast responsibility, and MEMS devices are considered to play an important role in building a smart city.

In 2020, The Research Laboratories of Saigon High Tech Park (SHTPLABS), Center for Innovative Materials and Architectures (INOMAR), Griffith University organize The Fourth International Workshop on MEMS and Sensor System: MEMS Sensor and Advanced Materials (IWMS 2020) in order to highlight the latest advances in sensor technology and materials research with a strong emphasis on the interdisciplinary character of these topics.

The sensor session will cover the MEMS, nanomechanical sensor, and biosensor research, etc. The materials session will display a wide range of subtopics, from material chemistry and physics, surface science, interface science, nanoarchitectonics, etc..

Prospective authors are requested to submit electronically abstracts of their intended papers for screening first, then the 1-2 page papers. The presentation time is 35 minutes for each presentation.

Official language: English.

Due to the affect of Covid-19, IWMS 2020 will be online for international speakers and onsite for domestic speakers.

Official e-mail address: all communications including inquiries, registration, and submission of abstracts and/or papers, are to be sent to thang.trinhxuan@shtplabs.org

The workshop is part of ‘Gas sensors for biomedical and environmental applications in smart cities and agriculture in Vietnam: Towards a Vietnamese centre of nanoscience’ project and ‘Low-power and Robust Sensor Network for Flood Monitoring and Management’ project is supported by a Research Environment Links grant, ID 527857898, under the Newton Programme Vietnam partnership. The grant is funded by the UK Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and delivered by the British Council. For further information, please visit www.newtonfund.ac.uk

Low-power and Robust Sensor Network for Flood Monitoring and Management’ project is granted by the AUS4Innovation Program. The program is co-funded by the Department for Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and the InnovationXchange (IXC), managed by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) with the Ministry of Science and Technology of Vietnam to be the key partner.
