Background of the WSS(WSS2018)

The sensor technology and its system industry is the fundamentality and strategic industry of national economy, and is the source of deep integration of informatization and industrialization, playing an important role in promoting of the transformation and upgrading of the industry, the development of strategic emerging industries, promoting of modern national defense construction and guaranteeing and increasing of the people’s living standard.

In the “13th Five-year Plan” Development Planning for the National Strategic Emerging Industries issued by the State Council in 2016, the sensor industry was deemed as the important content of “promoting key technology and equipment of intelligent manufacturing to new level” and “make layout for strategic industries in advance and cultivating new advantages for future development” etc In the Three-year Action Guidance for the Intelligent Sensor Industry (2017-2019) printed and issued by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People’s Republic of China in 2017, it was pointed out that the application of intelligent sensor market presents an explosive increasing trend, which has become the core and one of the foundations that determines the development of the future information technology industry, and has become a strategic highland of the layout between developed countries and transnational enterprises.

China Instrument and Control Society is the most leading academic organization of instrument and measurement control fields in China, which is main academic power that promotes instruments and apparatus and intelligent manufacturing, and also important academic power that develops the internet of things, smart cities and other emerging technologies. Based on important strategic meaning of the sensor technology and industries and clamant demands on the development of sensor industry in China, China Instrument and Control Society proposes the plan for holding the First World Sensors Summit in 2018 (for short: WSS), and bring it into the plan of activities in 2018 of the “Intelligent Sensor Innovation Alliance”.

After being proposed, the plan of the Summit has been responded to actively by Henan Provincial Government and Zhengzhou Municipal Government, which provide lots of beneficial conditions for holding the first Summit in Zhengzhou.

The first Summit officially lowered the curtain on November 14, 2018, which fully shoed the charm of 2018 first session World Sensors Summit (WWS2018) via the Summit, Expo and Contest and other modes, and after the Summit, received good response in the industry. Representatives of sensor science and technology field and industrial field participated as well as Henan Provincial government and Zhengzhou Municipal Government consistently required to continue to hold “2019 World Sensors Summit” in Zhengzhou next year, and suggested to expand the scale and upgrade contents of the Summit and exhibition, to better promote international exchange of sensor technology, boost vigorous development of China’s sensor science and technology and industry, and assist the revitation and upgrading of high-tech industries in Henan.


  Contents of the Summit

Topics of the Summit cover a wide range, including MEMS technology, optics and electronics, environment, gas detection, fluid engineering (temperature, pressure, flow rate, material level), discrete engineering (robot, logistics), biomedical, internet of Things and cloud, sensor technology applications in agriculture, forestry, animal busbandry, fishery and other agricultural fields, sensor materials, sensing technology applications in chemical field, sensors and sensitive elements and other academic meetings, etc.

    Objectives of the Summit

1. Promote the exchange and cooperation of achievements, and create a grand brand summit

Exchange the latest achievements of global sensor technologies, industries and applications, promote the cooperation among the government, industry, university, research, application, finance and media and other links, and create a high-rank, large scale and strong-influence grand brand summit in global sensor industry.

2. Bringing together talents of the industry, to shape Zhengzhou symbol of sensor industry.

Guide resources to gather toward Central Plains of China, attract industries to land through innovative and general professional policies, boost investments and talents attraction of Zhengzhou Intellect Sensor Valley and Shape “Zhengzhou” symbol of sensor industry.

3. Optimize industrial development system and create industry ecosystem

Promote the advancement of sensing technologies, perfect upstream/ downstream industry chains, push ahead the development of technology applications, optimize development system of sensor industry, boost the construction of intelligent sensor industry base and create high-quality ecosystem of sensor industry.
