Dr Shuji Fujita from New Business Creation Dept of Sony Corporation will present the last innovation of SONY  "AROMASTIC, a personal aroma diffuser, changes the way you enjoy scents" during Olfaction Congress 2016.

Monica Bordegoni is Professor at the Department of Mechanisms of the Politecnico di Milano, Italy.

During DOS World Congress 2016, she will give a very interesting presentation about "Enhancing user interaction with olfactory experiences".

How large effects does olfaction have on Quality of Experience (QoE) such as the sense of presence and fairness compared with other senses?

How do you assess the effects?

What kinds of applications with olfaction do you suppose in the assessment?

How does the network delay influence QoE?

Jesús Lozano Rogado is associate Professor of the electric, electronic and automation engineering department at the University of Extremadura, Spain. His main field of research is the development of artificial olfactory systems.

Dr. Michael Rapp is a researcher from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany and working on Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) sensor based analytical systems for gas, olfaction and bio- sensing. To fulfill a proper job of these systems he continuously work on new sampling methods to improve the signals in term of sensitivity, selectivity, unwanted cross sensitivity and a good reproducibility. This includes the use of microfluidic sampling systems especially in the area of biosensing. A major goal of his work is to keep the manufacturing and also the operating costs of these systems low and, thus, being able to emerge in new markets.
