Innovative fabrication technologies such as printed electronics and/or additive manufacturing represent a growing market. In the future, a high demand for sensors and IoT devices integrated on any object with arbitrary size and shape is envisaged. In this regard, new fabrication technologies are a viable solution for the design and fabrication of new sensors and IoT devices on several substrates in different objects. Printed sensors and printed electronics are adopted in many applications in the fields of Wearable devices, Industry 4.0 and IoT, from human-machine interfaces to the monitoring of physical and chemical quantities. These sensors and devices benefit from the latest materials and technologies enabling the possibility of obtaining an integration of sensors and electronics for the development of new measurement methods and apparatus.
Accordingly, this special session focuses on innovative fabrication technologies that can permit to fabricate physical, chemical, biological, etc., sensors on 2D or 3D substrates or design and fabricate IoT devices integrated in objects such as additive manufacturing, screen printing, inkjet printing, aerosol jet printing, etc.
Papers reporting works about innovative fabrication technologies, additive manufacturing, printed sensors applications, printing technologies, smart sensor devices, sensor fabrication/printing and testing for industrial, biomedical or other fields are invited.
Submissions are welcomed on (but not limited to):

Mauro Serpelloni was born in Brescia, Italy. He is currently Associate Professor of electrical and electronic measurements with the Department of Information Engineering, University of Brescia. He has worked on several projects relating to the design, modeling, and fabrication of measurement systems for industrial applications. His research interests include electronic instrumentation, sensors, contactless transmissions between sensors and electronics and signal processing for microelectromechanical systems. Recently, research has been addressed to the development of wearable sensors, autonomous sensors for biomedical applications and devices implantable inside the human body. He received the Laurea degree (cum laude) in management engineering and Ph.D. in electronic instrumentation from the University of Brescia in 2003 and 2006, respectively. In 2005 he has been Visiting Researcher at Escuela Politecnica Superior Castelldefels, Spain. From 2006 to 2010, he was Postdoctoral Researcher with the Department of Information Engineering, University of Brescia. From 2010 to 2017 he was Assistant Professor with the Department of Information Engineering, University of Brescia. Since 2010 he is Associate Professor with the Department of Information Engineering, University of Brescia, teaching sensors, electronic instrumentation, sensors for biosignals and mechatronics. He is the head of a new laboratory for aerosol jet printing.
Michela Borghetti received her Master’s degree, cum laude, in Electronic Engineering from the University of Brescia in 2012.
