FP7-INCO-2011 “SENS-ERA” Project
2nd INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON “ADVANCED SENSOR SYSTEMS AND NETWORKS”
TEI Piraeus, Athens, Greece
6-8 December 2012
In the context of the FP7-INCO-2011 “SENS-ERA” project, TEI Piraeus hosted the 2nd International Workshop on Advanced Sensor Systems and Networks in 6-8 December 2012, attended by all the “SENS-ERA” consortium partners and many prominent researchers and academics from Greek Universities and Research Centers.
The workshop was organized and chaired by Prof. Maria Rangoussi, Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and “SENS-ERA” Project Leader for TEI Piraeus. It included oral presentation sessions and a concluding discussion panel. Presentations were attended by TEI Piraeus faculty, staff and a large number of students.
