In-line with previous editions, DTIP’2018 will be a scientific event with two main conferences running in parallel, along with special sessions and plenary invited talks.

Special session on “Microsystems integration in textiles”
Integration of electronic microsystems into textiles is a growing research topic with enormous potential to impact on a diverse range of industries, from automotive to healthcare and fashion to aerospace. In this special session we would like to address new innovations in smart textile technology, with a focus on the integration and packaging of microsystems within the textiles.  Papers on smart textiles and wearable technology are welcomed, with a focus on, embedded systems, durability, washability, scalability, interconnections and manufacturing.
Organizer: Russel TORAH - - University of Southampton, UK

Special session on “Latest advances in micro-fluidics and bioMEMS”
During the past ten years, lab-on-a-chip developments haves been largely motivated by medical applications. These studies open now the way to a large variety of principles with the aim to provide performing and reliable diagnosis tests or personalized follow-up devices. In this session we would like to promote reporting of latest development in this field. A particular attention will be paid to liquid biopsy approaches (circulating  DNA/RNA, CTC, exosomes and extra cellular microvesicles).
Organizer: Anne-Marie GUE - - LAAS CNRS, Toulouse, FR

Special session on “MEMS for Space Applications”
In 2001, IEEE Spectrum published an article entitled “MEMS in Space” in which several predictions were made regarding the marriage of two technologies that were still emerging back then, namely, MEMS and small satellites. Since then, both MEMS and aerospace technologies have undergone deep transformations with MEMS becoming ubiquitous in our daily lives and the aerospace industry taking nano- and pico-satellites from mere educational projects to actual tools of Earth observation and space exploration. In this special session, we revisit some of the predictions made in the IEEE Spectrum article and highlight the state of the art and the future of using MEMS in CubeSats with particular focus on their navigation, propulsion, and payload subsystems.
Organizer: Ibrahim (Abe) M. ELFADEL - - Khalifa University of Science and Technology, Abu Dhabi, UAE

Specific deadlines have been set-up for these special sessions:
Submission of extended abstracts (1500 words plus figures) before February, 12th,
Notification of acceptance before March, 5th,
Final papers (up to 6 pages, IEEE Format) before April, 9th.
