Redmond, WA – December 3, 2007 – The CMSC Society, the eminent membership association for measurement professionals, today announced their "Call for Papers" for the 24th Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference (CMSC). The annual event will be held in Charlotte-Concord, NC from July 21 - 25, 2008. Metrology users from leading manufacturers and science laboratories are invited to submit abstracts for white papers illustrating their successful application of 3D coordinate measurement systems. Submissions will be reviewed by the CMSC Society and considered for presentation at CMSC 2008. The deadline for abstracts is March 3, 2008. Notification of acceptance will occur on March 18, 2008. Guidelines can be found at www.cmsc.org/callforpapers2008.pdf. For more information about presenting a white paper at CMSC 2008, contact Talion Edwards, Technical Presentations Coordinator at (314) 477-6231 or email: Email Contact.
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. Each year, the CMSC community convenes to gather information and attend white paper presentations delivered by their peers. Last year’s presentations were delivered by industry leaders from The Boeing Company, AirBus UK, National Institute of Standards and Technology, Samsung Heavy Industries Company, John Hopkins University, U.S. Army Ordnance Museum, University of Melbourne, Australia, and more.
Many topics, applications, and industry best practices were presented at CMSC 2007 from large scale rapid reverse engineering, to measuring and modeling a World War 1 Mark IV Female Tank, to new methods for large scale jig evaluations, to scripting metrology solutions, to surveying a 60-foot Antenna system.
CMSC is attended by users, service providers, and OEM manufacturers of close-tolerance, portable industrial coordinate measurement systems, software, and peripherals. Conference attendees hail from prominent science/research laboratories, and diverse industries such as aerospace, space hardware, antenna, automotive, shipbuilding, power generation, and general engineering.
