SENSE.nano SYMPOSIUM on June 5, 2018

This full-day symposium will highlight the needs for new SENSE technologies, showcase research and innovations, and present the impact of these technologies in Water, Environment and Agriculture systems.  SENSE includes sensors, new instrumentation, remote sensing, and other measurements solutions.

Technical, business, and visionary leaders from MIT, industry, and society will share their experiences and insight via a series of invited technical talks, presentations by MIT-launched startups, posters, and a panel discussion.


The impetus for the symposium is the recognition that novel sensors, sensing systems, and sensing solutions will provide insight into the condition of our most precious resources—water and the environment—at scales that were previously unimaginable.

May 25, 2017: the Launch of SENSE.nano

On May 25, 2017, MIT announced the launch of SENSE.nano—MIT.nano's first Center of Excellence. SENSE.nano convenes technical, business, and visionary leaders from MIT, industry, and society.  A full-day symposium brought together the Ubiquitous Sensing experts and visionaries: those who are developing capabilities and solving technical challenges, who articulate commercial and humanitarian needs, and who envision the societal impact of ubiquitous sensing. From the opening keynote address, through sessions of invited technical talks, and to the closing panel discussion, we showcased current research and innovations enabling new generations of sensors while highlighting potential impacts of and needs for realizing ubiquitous sensing for man-and-machine and for the environment-and-ecosystem.
