The Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS) has announced the call for papers for the 2010 Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference (CMSC). This year, the annual event will be held in Reno, NV, from July 12-16.
Metrology users from manufacturers and science laboratories are invited to submit abstracts for presentations and technical white papers illustrating their successful application of 3D coordinate measurement systems. 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@example.com. Presentation and technical white paper guidelines can be downloaded at 2010 CMSC Guidelines.
In 2009, more than 20 expert presentations were delivered by representatives 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. 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.
