Testimonials

"The Wearable Sensors and Electronics 2014 conference was an excellent event - well attended by luminaries from both the sensor space and wearables application area. The speakers and speaker topics were very engaging and thought provoking, and there was plenty of valuable networking opportunities at breakfast, lunch, and the cocktail reception - extremely important connections were made for our startup company."
Ian Campbell, CEO and Founder

“Wireless Sensors and Electronics 2014 far exceeded my expectations. The collection of talks/topics were well thought out and the contents has a lot of information and insight. The networking opportunity was excellent. Congratulations to the organizers and speakers."
Mehran Mehregany, PhD, Director and Professor, Case Western Reserve University

"The conference was very well organized and the topics presented were very carefully chosen and they had covered a wide range of issues pertinent to wearable sensors and electronics. I could certainly take a great deal of information on broad range of topics from technical design issues to security and legal problems from very knowledgeable speakers. In all, this was among the most informative conferences I have ever attended."
Farhad Razavi, Sr. Staff Engineer, MFLEX
