Welcome to the XXII World Congress of the International Measurement Confederation (IMEKO) which is being held in the United Kingdom for the first time in over 40 years, hosted by the Institute of Measurement and Control with active involvement of many other UK professional bodies, the National Physical Laboratory, Universities and industry.
Belfast, the capital city of Northern Ireland is playing host to delegates from across the world, for what promises to be an interesting, scientifically challenging and busy World Congress. Measurement, control and the instrumentation needed are key aspects in industry that underpin economic prosperity across the world and the event brings together leading experts from many countries to report on the latest and most exciting developments in their fields. ‘Knowledge Through Measurement’, a theme from the work of Lord Kelvin, the great scientist, engineer and entrepreneur who was born in Belfast, is the strapline for IMEKO 2018.
The Invited and Keynote speakers coming to the congress in September are some of the most distinguished in their field and the many sessions held during the week will provide real insight into what is new in this most topical and economically important of fields. The exhibition aims to showcase some of the leading developments in industry from the UK, Europe and indeed across the world.
The IMEKO World Congress promises easy access from the nearby airports and will be held in the recently extended Belfast Waterfront Conference & Exhibition Centre and will have an industry-focused Exhibition. IMEKO 2018 will also host an exciting and diverse social programme which will allow attendees, be they from industry or academia, exhibitors or contributors, to meet and to see some of the most interesting venues in and around Belfast. After the meeting, the city can be an excellent centre to explore the beautiful countryside and historic landmarks to be seen across Ireland.
In excess of 700 delegates from all over the world will attend IMEKO XXII WORLD CONGRESS 2018, all of whom have one thing in common, their eminence in the field of measurement.
Hosted by the Institute of Measurement and Control, the UK’s specialist Professional Engineering Institute in the fields of measurement, automation and control, and supported by the Institute of Physics, the World Congress will cover all aspects of current research in the field of measurement and will attract some of the worlds’ largest companies from the sensor, instrumentation, automation and IoT industries.
