This year’s Annual Assembly of the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina took place from 19-21 September in Rostock, Germany. Ursula Staudinger, Vice-President of Leopoldina, spoke at the opening. The theme of the conference was „Perception and Control – Sensory Systems in Biology and Engineering”. An interdisciplinary group of approximately 300 participants examined sensory organs and their engineering counterparts, i.e. sensors.
