dos conference 2016   The Committee of the Digital Olfaction Society announced the preliminary program, the list of speakers and the demonstrations already confirmed for this 3rd World Congress of the Digital Olfaction Society which will be held in Tokyo, in December 7-8, 2016.

  The Digital Olfaction Society (DOS) hold the first World Congress on digital olfaction in 2013 in Berlin and the second one in 2014 in Tokyo, Japan. For this III World conference, Tokyo will repeat as host of the event.

This time the program is plenty of very interesting presentations. This is the preliminary list of papers for this conference.
