Olfaction, a topic of interest in several scientific fields, has gradually become a topic of the future. Following the latest advances in the Research related to olfaction, the challenge is to tranfer this knowledge towards innovative technology.
Nowadays, there is no way to escape the digital world whatsoever when using a computer, a mobile phone or even means of transportation. Hearing, vision, touch are currently an integral part of numerous electronic devices which we use on a daily basis. Then, how about digitizing smells? This complex concept aims at turning any odorous source into a digital media which can be applied to our lifestyle.The idea is to create devices which can capture odors, turn them into digital data so as to transmit them everywhere in the world.
The 1st edition of Olfaction & Issues World Congress, which has held in Paris on November 4-5 2010, was a big success.
The Abstracts book & the report are now available.
