Coordinate Metrology Society Announces Technical Papers and Presentations for CMSC 2016

Published: Thursday, May 19, 2016 - 12:34

(CMS: Weatherford, TX) -- The Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS) has selected a slate of 25 technical papers and presentations for the 2016 Coordinate Metrology Society Conference (CMSC). The 32nd annual gathering of the CMS will be held July 25–29, 2016, at the Embassy Suites by Hilton in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The CMSC serves the needs of professionals in the portable 3D measurement and scientific communities.

The five-day conference established its industry reputation decades ago with diverse and original technical presentations delivered by high-level experts and scientists from around the world. The yearly event has served as a single-source educational platform for discussing ideas and theories, and discovering new and future metrology technologies. A full listing of the 2016 CMSC presentations and conference registration information can be found here.

The CMS completed its peer review of abstract submissions and selected technical presentations from industry veterans representing leading manufacturers and organizations such as Brookhaven National Laboratory, Triumph Aerostructures, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), The Boeing Co., Argonne National Laboratory, Airbus Saint Nazaire, Electroimpact , National Physical Laboratory (NPL-UK), Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Co., Northrop Grumman Missions Systems, Stelia Aerospace, and the National Research Council of Canada. The roster includes speakers from prestigious educational institutions including the Ontario Institute of Technology and University College London.

This year’s presentation roster will cover an interesting spectrum of topics, including best practices, techniques, trends, and technology breakthroughs, as well as the successful use of portable 3D coordinate measurement systems, laser trackers, photogrammetry, laser radar, 3D scanners and sensors, inspection software, and more. Examples of presentation topics include “Data Analysis Techniques for Critical Aircraft Assembly Features,” “Metrology Controlling Aircraft Shape Technology (MCAST),” “Metrology—The Invisible Keystone of Civilization,” and “Photogrammetric Measurement of A350 Brackets and Riggings.” The CMSC lineup of technical presentations can be found online at the 2016 CMSC Conference Agenda.

The CMSC attracts visitors from prominent science and research laboratories, educational institutions, and industries such as aerospace, satellite, automotive, shipbuilding, power generation, and general engineering. Attendees will find more than just technical presentations at CMSC. The conference will also include a new Measurement Zone and Educational Zone, workshops, Level-One and Level-Two Certification examinations, and networking events. The CMSC Exhibition Hall will feature portable coordinate measuring machines (PCMMs), software, and accessories supported by more than 40 OEMs and service providers. Attendees and exhibitors are encouraged to share their experiences, research, concepts, and theories in the open, educational atmosphere of the conference.
