“Dear Colleague,
On behalf of all the members of the Local Committee we invite you to join the 20th International Meeting on Chemical Sensors, which will be held in Freiburg, Germany from June 22 – 26. The roots of the conference series go back to its inception in Fukuoka, Japan in 1983, and it has since evolved with biennial meetings around the world. The IMCS 2025 promises an unparalleled platform for researchers, scientists, and industry experts to share insights, exchange knowledge, and push the boundaries of chemical sensing technology  at the international meeting. From the latest advancements in chemical- and biosensors to innovations in materials science, the conference will serve as a hub for cutting-edge developments in these fields.
With its blend of medieval charm and modern vibrancy, Freiburg provides an inspiring backdrop for the exploration of cutting-edge sensor technologies. Amidst historic architecture and lush landscapes, you can engage in fruitful discussions, make new connections, and let the spirit of Freiburg inspire your contributions to the field of chemical sensors.
After two online meetings due to the challenges of the global pandemic, we are particularly delighted to welcome you to Freiburg in 2025.”
