Following the successful Workshops in Peebles (1998), Santander (2004), Napoli (2007), Porto (2010),Krakow (2013) and Limerick (2016) we at the Cyprus University of Technology have the honour to organize the seventh edition of the European Workshop on Optical Fibre Sensors, EWOFS'2019. This initiative aims at promoting a scientific meeting with a high level of interaction between participants, enabling an open debate and the assessment of new concepts, technologies and applications in the domain of optical fibre sensors, as well as establishment of new collaborations and networks. EWOFS'2019 also intends to complement in time and geographical location the international conferences in this area, and in particular the International Conference on Optical Fibre Sensors (OFS).

The Workshop philosophy promotes the discussion and interaction between the attendees. Looking for this aim, all contributed papers will be presented as posters. Each poster session will be preceded by oral presentations which will deliver state-of-art views of the topic addressed in the session. After each poster session, the workshop attendees will be divided into groups which will analyse the contributions and present their comments in the subsequent discussion sessions, initiated by a panel that includes one nominee from each group. We believe this format will stimulate a constructive interaction among the attendees, motivating in particular the PhD students for an effective participation. Additionally, it will provide a forum for discussion of the trends and progresses in the optical fibre sensing field.
