About the event

The 5th IFSA Frequency and Time Conference (IFTC’ 2023) is organized by International Frequency Sensor Association (IFSA) – one of the major professional, non-profit association serving for academy and industry since 1999.

​IFSA was founded on 23 August 1999 with the aim to encourage the research and development in the area of sensors with frequency, time interval, duty-cycle and digital output, including multifunction, multifrequency transducers, the usage of new physical effects and principles. IFSA reports on current research in this field worldwide through its media: Sensors Web Portal, IFSA Newsletter, Sensors & Transducers journal, e-Digest (magazine) and related conferences. Today IFSA has more that 750 members from 74 countries from academia and industry worldwide.

The Series of annual international conference covers both: methods of measurements of frequency-time parameters of signals, and devices including appropriate sensors, transducers and converters to frequency, and frequency to digital and other related areas connected with frequency and time, namely: generation, transfer, various oscillators and resonators, standards and references, etc.

The 1st IFSA Frequency and Time Conference (IFTC’ 2019) has taken place in Barcelona, Spain (2019), the 2nd IFSA Frequency and Time Conference (IFTC’ 2020) - in Porto (Portugal). The 3rd IFTC' 2021 - in Palma de Mallorca (Balearic Islands), Spain. The 4th IFTC'2022 - in Corfu (Greece). The 5th IFTC' 2023 will take place in Funchal (Madeira Island), Portugal in conjunction with the 9th International Conference on Sensors and Electronic Instrumentation Advances (SEIA' 2023) and the 5th International Conferenceon Microelectronic Devicesand Technologies (MicDAT '2023) under the same conference umbrella.
