CMSC 2019 marks 35 years of education, advances in metrology


The Coordinate Metrology Society® (CMS) has formally issued a call for technical papers for the 35th annual Coordinate Metrology Society Conference (CMSC) July 22-26, in Orlando, Florida.

The CMSC provides an inclusive knowledge platform for subject matter experts from the portable and traditional Coordinate Measurement Machine (CMM) communities. Author practitioners are encouraged to submit abstracts covering technological advancements, research findings, successful implementations, and best practices. Since 1984, more than 525 original technical papers have been presented to the eminent membership association for measurement professionals worldwide. The organization maintains a digital library of more than 100 technical papers delivered at the CMSC over the past 12 years. Ideal for research, this is the most comprehensive repository of metrology knowledge and information in the world. For more information, visit CMSC Call for Papers

The Coordinate Metrology Society Conference is a premier venue for metrology practitioners and scientific researchers. The CMS seeks original, expert contributions or major developments in previously reported work on topics that include, but are not limited to: case studies, technology benchmarks, metrology solutions for automation, process control, assembly, and more, as well as other Smart Factory trends that unlock the potential of 3D metrology technologies. Each new harvest of technical papers serves to introduce next-generation ideas and forge a collaborative bridge between professionals with different skill levels, as metrology becomes more impactful across the manufacturing domain than any time before.
