Breath Summit 2018
The field of breath research is rapidly growing, mainly because of improved analytical instrumentations, sensor technologies combined with sophisticated data analysis approaches, and the attractiveness of the non-invasive sampling. Altogether, in the breath community we dream big dreams and the ultimate hallucination is that of personal monitoring of health and disease.
Since breath research is transdisciplinary in nature, intense collaborations are a prerequisite to take the field to the next level. For this, trustful and enduring relations should be built between different disciplines and time and energy should be invested in understanding the problems encountered in other research areas. Therefore, the theme of this 2018 Breath Summit is Bridging Breath Research! We intend to build bridges between physicians who apply breath analysis in the clinic and physicists, biologists, chemists, engineers and computer scientists who develop new technologies, sensors and algorithms.
