2018 Call for Papers Opens for the Coordinate Metrology Society Conference

The Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS) has announced its 2018 Call for Papers for the 34th annual Coordinate Metrology Society Conference (CMSC), July 23 - 27, 2018, in Reno, NV. The CMS is a membership association for measurement professionals worldwide. For the first time, the organization is opening its Call for Papers to the coordinate measurement machine (CMM) community, in addition to its portable measurement systems society. The CMS encourages abstract submissions that explore diverse applications of 3-D metrology 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 CMS encourages papers and presentations that cover R&D driving the future of metrology such as the Smart Factory, 3-D printing, artificial intelligence (AI), automation and manufacturing cells and other trends that unlock the potential of 3-D metrology technologies. Submissions must be original, expert-level contributions from metrology practitioners working in the portable and CMM metrology field. Technical papers can cover all aspects of metrology competencies gained from R&D, 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 9, 2018. The CMS Executive Committee peer reviews each abstract, and if selected, the speaker will receive a Notification of Acceptance on April 6, 2018. As a bonus, conference registration and membership fees are waived for individual speakers presenting at the conference. In the case of multiple authors, the CMS will waive one conference registration and membership fee.

For more information contact:

For more information, contact Daniel Sawyer, Scott Sandwith, or Michelle Edwards, Technical Presentations Coordinators at

After the conference, the CMS Executive Committee will select the top technical papers presented at CMSC 2018 for publication in the 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.
