Many thanks to all attendees worldwide who made SAW Sensor & Actuator Symposium a great success again !

2021 SAW Symposium – again a great success

The hybrid Surface Acoustic Wave Sensor & Actuator Symposium took place on October 14 – 15, 2021, at the Bilderberg Bellevue Dresden, Dresden, Germany and was simultaniously followed online from all over the world. Cutting-edge SAW sensor and actuator research and applications have been provided in three KEYNOTE talks, 25 ORAL presentations as well as in nine POSTER contributions. Finally, the get-together-party during the boat trip on River Elbe on the old steamer ‘Krippen’ provided a lot of options for personal networking and discussions among the attendees.

Cutting edge Research and Industry together in one place – connected to the whole world …

The biennial SAW Symposium brings together partners from science and industry to create a platform for mediating ideas and inspiration towards innovative applications.
SAW (Surface Acoustic Wave) based sensors and actuators are key components for the modern industrial society especially for industry 4.0, smart home and lab-on-a-chip systems.

SAW sensors are opening new options for industrial control and monitoring applications while emerging SAW actuators enhance the capabilities of modern atomizers and microfluidic systems. The Symposium will build bridges between new findings from science on one side and the requirements of industrial applications and professional laboratories on the other side. Therefore its program covers the latest research from academia as well as application-related talks from industrial end-users.
