I have been invited to speak at the Institute of Physics' biennial conference on Sensors and their Applications. The seventeenth in the series of conferences on Sensors & their Applications (S&A XVII) will be hosted outside of the UK and Ireland for the first time in Dubrovnik, Croatia in September 2013.
