D.I.Mendeleyev Institute for Metrology (VNIIM)

An event of
IMEKO TC21 "Mathematical Tools for Measurements" organised by VNIIM
co-sponsored by
VNIIM, EMRP Projects NEW04 and NEW06, Euramet Focus Group

The 10th AMCTM 2014 Conference is an IMEKO TC21 event that will be held in St. Petersburg, organised by VNIIM.

This will be the 10th Editions for the 20th anniversary since the beginning of the Series.

First workshop and 10th anniversary edition Torino (1993, 2003), Oxford (1995, 1999), in Berlin (1996), Lisbon (2000, 2005), Paris (2008) and Göteborg (2011).

This Edition is co-sponsored by the VNIIM, and co-sponsored by EURAMET, the European Association of National Metrology Institutes, within its EMRP Project NEW04 "Novel mathematical and statistical approaches to uncertainty evaluation" and Project NEW06 "Traceability for Computationally-Intensive Metrology" (TRACIM), and by the EURAMET Focus Group "Software & Mathematical Tools for Metrology".
It also embeds for 2014 the VNIIM International Seminar "Mathematics, statistics and computation to support measurement quality".

The Conference ambition is to continue to play worldwide a role as a central opportunity for the metrological community to meet applied mathematicians and statisticians acting in the relevant fields and the software engineers producing adequate working tools.

In addition, as an IMEKO event, it aims at broadening its cultural role in also bridging the gaps between fields today more and more interconnected to metrology, like those of testing (already permanent in the Conference title), decision making and risk evaluation - including economic and quality aspects - or non-physical quantities by proposing to the attention of the attendees methods for data analysis and modelling rarely or not yet adopted in metrology.

Conference general aims

  • To present and promote reliable and effective mathematical and computational tools in metrology
  • To understand better the modelling, statistical and computational requirements in metrology
  • To provide a forum for metrologists, mathematicians and software engineers that will encourage a more effective synthesis of skills, capabilities and resources
  • To promote collaboration in the context of EU and International Programmes
  • To support young researchers in metrology and related fields, also through training
  • To address industrial requirements
  • To cover both fields of metrology and testing
  • To facilitate interaction with the decision-making and risk analysis fields
