Think, for example, how your quality of life may have improved over what your great grandparents experienced a hundred years ago. Innovations and conveniences that we enjoy today would have been hard to imagine in their day. Modern automobiles, air conditioning, appliances, commercial air travel, computers, GPS navigation systems, cell phones, TVs, radios, medical improvements including MRIs, organ transplants, and joint replacements are all examples that contribute to our quality of life. Now consider the role of Measurement Science. Without the ability to measure and control critical parameters, these kinds of advances would only be science fiction.

Abstracts are required for all proposed papers, panels and workshops. Please read our "Duplicate Publication Policy."

Abstracts must be 350 words or less and be submitted electronically. Submitters may edit, track and add co-authors to their abstract using the abstract management system. Authors will return to this page to upload their papers and presentations once their abstracts have been accepted.  Please include enough detail in your abstract so that the abstract review committee can determine the correct session in which to place your talk. You are required to submit a set of learning objectives along with your abstract. These learning objectives should describe what the listener (or reader) will know or be able to do as a result of listening to your presentation or reading your paper. The Technical Program Chair will assemble a team to review all the abstracts and select those that are top rated for presentation at the Conference. Once abstracts are selected for the technical program, authors will be provided manuscript instructions. Wherever appropriate, the papers should relate to the conference theme. In all cases, they must be non-commercial and objective.
