JLM Innovation at the ISOCS-SniffPhone Winter Short Course 2017

In March 2017 ISOCS the International Society for Olfaction and Chemical is hosting a Workshop on SniffPhone, during their annual Winter Short Course in Italy. As members of the SniffPhone consortium, researchers from JLM Innovation be part of the Workshop and the Short Course.

Dr. Jan Mitrovics and Dr. Sergi Udina will be featured among the speakers during the Short Course on the topic Breath Analysis with Chemical Sensor Arrays.
During the one-day workshop on SniffPhone, there will be a demonstration of the new SniffPhone prototype by Dr. Sergi Udina as well as presentations from the project partners. The Short course explores the area of chemical sensing, of breath analysis and its applications.
The exciting program will provide attendees with both theoretical background and practical experience. Topics will be delivered by lectures, exercises, discussion and laboratory demonstration sessions.

This short course will cover topics including:
Introduction to chemical sensors
Electronic nose concepts
Sampling of breath            
Applications of breath analysis          
Data analysis of sensor arrays
External validation methods                 
Medical aspects of breath analysis
SniffPhone project last advances
Demonstration of the SniffPhone prototype

List of speakers:
Prof. Arnaldo  D'Amico, University Tor Vergata, Roma
Prof. Julian Gardner, University of Warwick
Prof. Hossam Haick, Technion, Israel
Prof. Marcis Leja, University of Latvia at Riga
Prof. Christopher Mayhew, University Innsbruck, Austria

Dr. Veronica Sberveglieri, Univeristy of Brescia
Dr. Andrea Ponzoni, University of Brescia
Dr. Vera Ruzsanyi, University Innsbruck, Austria

Who should attend?
The Short Course is ideal for anyone with an interest in chemical sensors and olfaction, its application to breath analysis, and is new to the field; for example, PhD students, researchers, technologists and industrialists. Short Courses organized by ISOCS are a unique combination of fundamental theory lectures and practical application exercises. They provide an introduction into selected topics of current research and new developments in the area of chemical sensing and olfaction. In this edition, you will have the unique opportunity to attend to the last developments in the European project SniffPhone that aims at detecting lung diseases using a chemical sensor array.
The Short Course is residential and the programme allows plenty of scope for networking with lecturers and attendees. Lectures take place in the morning, with the afternoon free for participants to network, consolidate their knowledge, or enjoy the outdoors. We encourage people to ski in the afternoon and we have amongst us, the organisers, some keen skiers. Discussion sessions and labs resume in the early evening before evening dinner.

Ponte di Legno is an Italian comune of 1,773 inhabitants in Val Camonica, province of Brescia, in Lombardy  (www.comune.ponte-di-legno.bs.it/pages/home.asp ). The venue is at the Hotel Pineta *** - Ponte di Legno (Brescia) Italy which is located close to the ski slopes, and close access to many famous ski resorts.
