Important Update

The safety and well-being of our participants is our priority. With the continued resurgence of COVID-19 along with the continued guidelines prohibiting large or even moderately-sized public gatherings, it makes it an impossibility to hold the in-person event as originally planned.

The organizing committee is moving 2021 INERTIAL to a fully virtual conference. We were looking forward to seeing everyone in Kailua-Kona, but we are excited for the opportunity to innovate an engaging virtual conference. The organizing committee is now working to create a virtual conference that will be rewarding for both presenters and attendees.

Immediate guidance for authors, and questions about registration and participation will be provided shortly. We are actively discussing several options, with full details to be announced soon.

This exclusive international Symposium on Inertial Sensors and Systems will be held Virtually.

The event continues our annual tradition of informal single track international meetings discussing the latest developments in the area of modern inertial sensors and emerging applications. The INERTIAL 2021 will be a five-day event with one day of tutorials, and four days of technical sessions.


Sensors Phenomena & Modeling

Sensor Systems & Electronics

Sensor arrays, multi-sensor units, inertial measurement units, sensor electronics, actuator systems, control of sensors

Atomic/Quantum Sensors

Theory, physical principles, device/system modeling, experimental results, packaging, supporting technologies, error/predictive models

Low-cost Manufacturing

Wafer-level fabrication, new micro/nano techniques, new materials, built-in diagnostics

Advanced Packaging

Wafer-level, system-in-package, vacuum/differential  packaging

Advanced Test & Evaluation
