Call for Papers Opens for 2016 Coordinate Metrology Society Conference

Published: Thursday, November 12, 2015 - 17:42

(CMSC: Weatherford, TX) -- The Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS) has announced its call for papers for the 32nd annual Coordinate Metrology Society Conference (CMSC), to be held July 25–29, 2016, in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

The CMS is seeking original contributions from portable metrology experts that cover the successful use of 3D coordinate measurement systems, case studies, technology benchmarks, scientific research and developments, and more. Commercial content is not accepted. The CMSC is the premier gathering where experienced metrologists present their projects and showcase their knowledge of industry best practices, measurement strategies, and implementations. The CMS is the eminent membership association for measurement professionals around the globe.

Abstract submissions for technical papers and presentations are due by March 11, 2016. Each abstract is peer-reviewed by the CMS executive committee, and if selected, the speaker will receive a notification of acceptance on April 8, 2016. Guidelines for presentations and technical papers can be downloaded at 2016 CMSC Guidelines. For more information about presenting a technical paper at CMSC 2016, contact Scott Sandwith or Daniel Sawyer, technical presentations coordinators at presentations@cmsc.org.

Following the CMSC, the top technical papers are selected by the executive committee for publication in the prestigious Journal of the CMSC. Technical papers and presentations are also published on the CMSC website for access by the membership. Conference registration and membership fees are waived for individual speakers presenting at the conference. In the case of multiple authors, the CMS will waive one conference registration and membership fee.

The 2015 CMSC delivered a full slate of authoritative white papers and application presentations from CMS members, special industry guests, and master users of portable measurement technology. Conference speakers represented leading scientific laboratories and global companies such as BMW Manufacturing Co., Newport News Shipbuilding, Northrop Grumman Aerospace, The Boeing Co., Naval Surface Warfare Center, FFT Produktionssysteme GmbH & Co. (Germany), Argonne National Laboratory, National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST), the National Physical Laboratory (NPL-UK), UNC Charlotte, University of Ontario Institute of Technology (Canada), Leibniz University at Hannover (Germany), and other thought leaders in the field.

The CMSC is much more than a conference for the portable metrology community. It is an international stage for new innovations and strategic networking with top professionals in the field. The CMS is committed to expanding membership participation and building a learning culture with its expanded Measurement Zone at the heart of convention’s exhibition hall. The organization also focuses on career-enhancing programs such as its Level-One and Level-Two certifications, special workshops, and hands-on competition challenges during the conference.
