December 16, 2011 --- The Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS), the eminent membership association for measurement professionals, today announced their "Call for Papers" for the 2012 Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference (CMSC). The 28th annual event will be held at The Roosevelt New Orleans in New Orleans, LA from July 16 – 20, 2012. The organization welcomes abstracts for presentations and technical papers submitted by metrology professionals from leading manufacturers, science laboratories, and academia. Suggested topics include industry best practices, scientific research and developments, and successful applications of 3D coordinate measurement systems. The CMSC is the only North American conference dedicated solely to users of portable, high-precision measurement technology used to inspect manufactured and assembled components on the factory floor.
Abstract submissions will be peer-reviewed by the Coordinate Metrology Society and considered for presentation at CMSC 2012. The deadline for abstracts is March 1, 2012. Notification of acceptance will occur on March 15, 2012. For guidelines or more information about presenting a technical paper at CMSC 2012, contact Michael Raphael, Technical Presentations Coordinator at Email Contact. Guidelines for presentations and technical papers can be downloaded at 2012 CMSC Guidelines. The CMS Executive Committee will review all technical papers presented at the CMSC, and select the conference’s best papers for publication in The Journal of the CMSC.
At the 2011 CMSC, 26 expert presentations were delivered by industry leaders from The Boeing Company, Mann+Hummel USA, Rolls-Royce North America, Sigma Space, Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems, NIST, Lawrence Livermore National Lab, National Physical Laboratory (NPL), University of Ontario Institute of Technology, University of Arizona, Coventry University (UK), and other companies and educational institutions covering technology, theory, and practice to advance the field of 3D metrology.
The Coordinate Metrology Society convenes each year to gather information and attend white paper presentations delivered by their peers. Attendees include novice and veteran technology users, service providers, and OEM manufacturers of close-tolerance, portable industrial coordinate measurement systems, software, and peripherals. In the Exhibition Hall, visitors explore the latest in laser projection systems, laser trackers, laser radars, articulating arms, photogrammetry/videogrammetry systems, scanners, and indoor GPS.
