The 7th Annual Meeting of the Digital Olfaction Society (DOS) will take place on November 29-30 at Tokyo, Japan, and Online. This meeting is headed by Prof. Jesús Lozano Rogado, President of DOS, University of Extremadura, Spain.
It is time for the digital olfaction. Other human senses such as vision, touch and hearing have already been successfully developed artificially. After more than 40 years of developing instruments that mimic the sense of smell, digital olfaction is ready to be used. The technologies of chemical sensors, electronic instrumentation and artificial intelligence together with the development of numerous prototypes of artificial olfactory systems have put this technology in a position where it must leave the laboratory and begin to extend its use in the different applications in which these technologies can be useful to society, either for the automation of processes that are carried out manually using sensory panels or to complement other analysis techniques. In this sense, in the coming years, digital olfaction will take off in a wide range of applications from the detection of diseases through breath, the air quality surveillance and detection of pollutants, the monitoring of food and beverage processing with low-cost devices that enable the creation of wireless sensor networks and personal devices for individual use, as happened a few years ago with touch devices, Smart voice assistants or cameras for computer vision.
For this to happen, the different industrial sectors, electronic equipment manufacturers and academia must join forces to develop new devices that will enable the development of new calculation algorithms to tackle these novel applications in which digital olfaction can improve people's lives. Digital olfaction is sure to be the next digital sense.

About the Digital Olfaction Society
The aim of DOS is to create devices which not only can record smells, turn them into digital data but also transmit and restitute them where we like. The objective of DOS is also to gather, share, and complete the knowledge recently established about olfactory digitization. Our perspective is to build up constructive links between leading researchers and industrialists in order to set up appropriate strategies in order to implement Research & Development through practical applications with a high impact on our lifestyle thanks to the potential of olfactory digitization. We want to move from the Stone Age of odorous substance toward a New Age by means of digital fragrance, aroma and smell technologies.
