The Coordinate Metrology Society(CMS), the eminent membership association for measurement professionals, today announced the "Call for Papers" for the 2010 Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference (CMSC). This annual event will be held in Reno, Nevada from July 12 - 16, 2010. Metrology users from leading manufacturers and science laboratories are invited to submit abstracts for presentations and technical white papers illustrating their successful application of 3D coordinate measurement systems. For more than 25 years, the CMSC has hosted the highest caliber of expert presentations that explore technology, theory, and practice to advance the field of 3D coordinate metrology.
Abstract submissions will be peer reviewed by the Coordinate Metrology Society and considered for presentation at CMSC 2010. The deadline for abstracts is April 16, 2010. Notification of acceptance will occur on May 7, 2010. For guidelines or more information about presenting a white paper at CMSC 2010, contact Scott Sandwith, Technical Presentations Coordinator at
Email Contact. Presentation and technical white paper guidelines can be downloaded at 2010 CMSC Guidelines.
In 2009, more than 20 expert presentations were delivered by industry leaders from Airbus, Audi, NASA Goddard Space Center, The Boeing Company, University of Michigan, Spirit Aerosystems, Lockheed Martin MFC – Dallas, National Research Council Canada, University of Warwick, and other professionals in the field of metrology. 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 CMS community convenes to gather information and attend white paper presentations delivered by their peers.
A diverse range of topics, applications, and industry best practices were presented at CMSC 2009 from the measurement of the USS Monitor’s Dahlgren gun, to the precision alignment and positioning of a large Spectroscopic Telescope, to geometry inspection of precision-forged crank shafts, to measurement assisted assembly of large volume aircraft wing structures.
CMSC is attended by users, service providers, and OEM manufacturers of close-tolerance, portable industrial coordinate measurement systems, software, and peripherals. Attendees hail from prominent science/research laboratories, and diverse industries such as aerospace, space hardware, antenna, automotive, shipbuilding, power generation, and general engineering.
