The purpose of workshops is to provide a more interactive and focused platform for presenting and discussing new and emerging ideas. The format of paper presentations may include oral presentations, poster presentations, keynote lectures and panels. Depending on the number of presentations, workshops can be scheduled for 1 day or 2 days. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on CD-ROM support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Index) and Scopus.

Integrated lab-on-a-chip systems on silicon technology lead to miniaturization and less expensive biodevices. Integrated sensor systems are a step ahead from the established hybrid sensor approaches. Such systems are capable of label free fast detection of biomolecules (proteins, DNA, cells)with ultra-high sensitivity. Sensitivity enhancement is achieved due to the close proximity of read-out circuits owing to the same silicon platform. This workshop focuses on such biosensors and readout techniques on silicon platform (CMOS and BiCMOS technology). Integrated microfluidic platforms for easy handling of biological suspensions will also be a part of the workshop.
