Registration Opens for 2015 Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference

Published: Thursday, February 12, 2015 - 00:00

(CMSC: Hollywood, FL) -- The Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS), the preeminent membership association for measurement professionals, has announced online registration is open for the 31st annual Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference (CMSC). The event will be held from July 20–24, 2015, at the Diplomat Resort and Spa in Hollywood, Florida. The CMSC is a week-long technology conference for users of portable 3D measurement solutions applied by manufacturers and science laboratories. This seminal gathering attracts leading OEMs and service providers, as well as expert speakers delivering fresh perspectives on trends, best practices, R&D, successful applications, and innovations in the field of metrology. The CMSC has built and sustained its industry reputation by delivering an impressive slate of original technical papers and presentations, year in and year out, for more than 30 years.

Online attendee registration is now open at www.cmsc.org/register. Registration for new exhibitors will open on April 1, 2015. Exhibitors from previous years will be contacted sequentially for early registration opportunities. Don't be alarmed if you haven't received your registration dates yet. We will be reaching out to all past exhibitors throughout the months of February and March. Conference details for interested exhibitors can be found at www.cmsc.org/cmsc-exhibitor-information. CMSC attendees are metrologists, quality control professionals, manufacturing executives and managers, scientists, students, educators, and those who want to sharpen their skill sets and broaden their knowledge of 3D portable measurement applications in aerospace, automotive, power generation, heavy industry, marine, and more.

Fulfilling its educational mandate, the CMSC will host their popular Measurement Zone with an eLearning Center, metrology challenges, educational workshops, industry updates, and networking events, in addition to their technical paper sessions. The CMSC exhibition hall will feature the latest in metrology products and services, including industrial photogrammetry, laser trackers, laser radars, articulating arms, laser scanners, laser projection systems, indoor GPS, theodolites, inspection software, and accessories.

Call for papers continues through March 13, 2015

The CMSC Call for Papers continues until March 13, 2015. Abstract submissions are peer-reviewed by the Coordinate Metrology Society and considered for presentation at CMSC 2015. Notification of acceptance will occur on April 3, 2015. For guidelines or more information about presenting a technical paper, contact Scott Sandwith, Technical Presentations Coordinator, at presentations@cmsc.org. Guidelines for presentations and technical papers can be downloaded at 2015 CMSC Guidelines. Conference speakers gain recognition as industry experts, and all accepted white papers are peer reviewed and considered for publication in the Journal of the CMSC.

CMS certification examinations during conference

The Coordinate Metrology Society will also offer the CMS Level-One and Level-Two Certification examinations during the conference. The Level-One Certification examination is a proctored, online assessment covering foundational theory and practice common to most portable 3D Metrology devices. The Level-Two Certification is a hands-on performance examination for users of articulated arm PCMMs (portable coordinate measuring machines). This device-specific assessment is conducted by CMS-authorized proctors. The cost for a CMS member to take either certification exam is $400, and non-member pricing is also available. Certification program guidelines and application forms are available on the CMS website at www.cmsc.org/cms-certification.
