The Weatherford, Texas-based Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS) announced that registration is open for its annual Coordinate Metrology Society Conference (CMSC), July 22-26, 2019, at the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld in Orlando, Fla. This is the 35th conference dedicated to measurement professionals worldwide.
The CMSC is designed to meet the continuing education needs of the portable and traditional coordinate measurement machine (CMM) communities. Since 1984, industry experts have presented more than 525 original technical papers at the yearly event. In celebration, the CMS Executive Committee has special programming in the works for this year’s seminal gathering.
CMS also will pay tribute to the 10th anniversary of its popular Measurement Zone, which provides engaging experiences for attendees through daily activities in various areas, including knowledge and hands-on competition challenges using the latest metrology systems. Located in the heart of the CMSC Exhibition Hall, the Measurement Zone provides access to e-Learning tablets providing a variety of metrology topics from measurement uncertainty to dimensional control techniques. Other popular programs added in the past decade include the CMS Quiz Show and the Ask the Experts event.
“We are excited to offer expanded professional development opportunities to our membership at the 35th CMSC,” said Scott Sandwith, 2019 chair. “The CMS will pay tribute to those who blazed a trail for metrologists, who recognized early on that we are a unique, and important, community under the manufacturing and research science umbrella. We are indebted to these industry pioneers who believed in sharing both practical and applied knowledge of metrology. In this spirit, the CMSC fosters a new generation of measurement professionals and creates a collaborative bridge between novice and expert practitioners.”
Call for Papers Open
March 8, 2019, is the last day to submit abstracts for the organization’s Call for Papers in the portable and traditional CMM communities. Abstracts should cover new developments in hardware and software, diverse applications of 3D metrology to improve processes, productivity, and the user experience. The CMS Executive Committee peer reviews all abstracts, and if selected, the author(s) will receive a Notification of Acceptance on April 5, 2019.
