Alpha MOS award at ISOEN 2022

This year the award was attributed to Gianmarco Gabrieli, from IBM Research Europe for his work on an electronic tongue.


After a hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemics, ISOEN was back in 2022, as in person meeting to Europe in Aveiro (Portugal) between May 29 and June 1.

The “Olfaction & Electronic Nose Symposium” was launched by Alpha MOS company, the first in commercializing E-Nose and developing further the scientific and technological exchange around this area. The first symposium was held in 1994 in Toulouse (France).

ISOEN brings together experts in various fields of engineering, from biomedical to environmental to materials engineering to the artificial intelligence community, from all over the world, to discuss and exchange knowledge on how to build the next generation of electronic instruments for machine olfaction and gustation, either mimicking nature or introducing novel sensing concepts.

This year, ISOEN has presented 35 oral presentations and 69 posters coming from 25 countries around the world. Three keynotes were presented by Prof. Krishna Persaud (Manchester University, UK), by Prof. Hossam Haick (Technion, Israel) and Prof. Manel del Valle (Autonomous University of Barcelona, Spain).

Since 2009, Alpha MOS rewards the Best Industrial Presentation on the best application of an Electronic Nose or Electronic Tongue.

During this 19th edition of ISOEN, the Best Industrial Presentation award was granted to Gianmarco Gabrieli, from IBM Research Europe (Switzerland) for his presentation entitled "A reconfigurable integrated electronic tongue and its use in accelerated analysis of juices and wines". In his work, transient potentiometric response of an array of miniaturized polymeric sensors demonstrated sensitivity to different organic acids and exhibited interesting performance for the fingerprinting of fruit juices and wines, including differentiation of samples based on sensory descriptors and prediction of consumer acceptability of aged juice samples.
