Welcome to the official website of the 4th International Conference on Materials and Applications for Sensors and Transducers, IC-MAST. The conference is to be held at Bilbao, Spain during June 8-11, 2014. The conference aims at creating a forum in the field of materials research and their applications, especially for those materials that are used for sensors and devices that transduce physical properties..

Some of the main topics of the IC-MAST are:
  • New materials development
  • Fabrication technology
  • Sensing principles and mechanisms
  • Actuators
  • Optical devices
  • Electrochemical devices
  • Mass-sensitive devices
  • Gas sensors
  • Biosensors
  • Analytical microsystems
  • Environmental, process
  • biomedical applications
  • Signal processing
  • Physics of materials
  • etc
