The event will involve five invited speakers from academia to report the point of view of women involved in the field of sensors with both different years of experience and different academic positions. The first part of the program is devoted to the presentation of Daniela Lo Presti and Elena De Vita. In the second part of the event will be focused on the presentations of Lucia Salvioni, Federica Bianconi and Giuseppina Pacella. The speakers will present the milestones of their impressive academic carreer and how the use of sensors has been crucial in their research topics.
The 3rd edition of Sense IT will provide an opportunity to facilitate knowledge sharing fostered by the presentations of the four plenary speakers. In addition, the presence of both young researchers and senior scientists will promote activities of women in programs related to sensors field and more in general in STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) disciplines.
