Call for Papers For the Coordinate Metrology Society Conference

The Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS) has announced its 2024 Call for Papers for the 40th annual Coordinate Metrology Society Conference (CMSC), July 22 – 25, 2024, in Charlotte, NC.

The CMS is the eminent membership association for measurement professionals worldwide. The CMS encourages abstract submissions that explore diverse applications of 3D metrology, stationary and portable, to improve processes, productivity, and the user experience. Since 1984, industry leaders have contributed over 500 high-level technical papers and presentations to the CMSC portfolio, the most comprehensive repository of portable metrology knowledge and information.

The Coordinate Metrology Society encourages papers and presentations that cover research and development that’s driving the future of metrology such as the Smart Factory, 3D printing, artificial intelligence (AI), precision assembly, automation and manufacturing cells, and other trends that unlock the potential of 3D metrology technologies. Further the CMS would like to solicit papers and presentations that cover practical applications in 3D Metrology that showcase novel approaches to data collection / analysis and advances the concepts of 3D metrology. Submissions must be original, expert-level contributions from metrology practitioners working in the portable and stationary metrology field or performing research in all areas of 3D Metrology. Technical papers can cover all aspects of metrology competencies gained from research and development, best practices, technology benchmarks, and innovative use cases exploring the adoption or adaption of metrology solutions for problem solving or process control. Commercial content is not accepted by the CMS.

The deadline for abstract submissions for technical papers and presentations is March 15th, 2024. The CMS Presentation Committee peer reviews each abstract, and if selected, the speaker will receive a Notification of Acceptance on April 5th, 2024. Presentations that are accompanied by a technical paper will receive preference for acceptance. The CMSC website has the full schedule of submission dates. As a bonus, conference registration and membership fees are waived for individual speakers presenting at the conference.

After the conference, the CMS Presentation Committee will select the top technical papers presented at CMSC 2024 for publication in the prestigious Journal of the CMSC. The technical journal provides additional coverage of the published work to an even larger global audience. CMS members in good standing can also access the technical papers and presentations via the CMSC website. Authors and researchers are also encouraged to cite CMSC technical papers if referenced in their own technical papers.

The Coordinate Metrology Society dedicates itself to serving the education and career needs of expert and novice metrologists. An impressive array of authoritative white papers and presentations were delivered at its 2023 conference covering topics from advancements in photogrammetry, concepts on improved filtering of 3D data, to automated data collection and analysis.
