19. – 21. September 2022
Hybrid with physical attendance in Berlin, Germany
On 19. - 21. September 2022 the IMEKO TC6 "Digitalization" organises the first international conference on metrology and digital transformation - the M4Dconf 2022. The Conference will be organized as hybrid event - with limited number of places for physical attendance in Berlin.
The IMEKO M4Dconf 2022 Programm Committee is delighted to announce a call for proposals for special sessions within the technical scope of the conference.
Special sessions are intended to establish mini-workshops on emerging topics for Digital Transformation in metrology, where experts in the same field of interest can reach out to each other, exchange ideas, gain new knowledge and explore potential cooperation. Papers can be submitted to any of the special sessions. Following a peer-review process, accepted submissions will be invited to present at the special session.
The Call for Special Sessions is open until 31st January 2022.
Further information and the submission form can be found here.
All approved Special Sessions and the Conference General Sessions can be found here.
Pathways to digital transformation
There are 256 institutes currently participating in the CIPM MRA, and many more laboratories and regulatory bodies that will be affected by digital transformation of the international quality infrastructure. The needs, expertise, and resources of these various participants will vary greatly; a few are advanced along their digitalisation pathway, while many more feel daunted by the task ahead. However, unlike other sweeping technological changes in metrology, digital systems are ubiquitous. Institutes in all economies are facing the challenge of designing and implementing innovative solutions that are fit for the needs of particular communities and compatible with the emerging global standards. This session is intended for participants still in the early stages of transformation, or with needs that differ substantially from more advanced technological economies. It is a forum to share experience about novel and innovative approaches to digital transformation.
Modeling metrology in software for digital transformation
Society relies on sophisticated measurement infrastructures that use behind-the-scenes experts to generate, communicate, interpret, and consume data. Information technology now presents the challenge and opportunity to transform these apparently transparent infrastructures for the digital economy. Ideally, computing systems would generate, communicate, and consume the data without human intervention up and down the traceability chain and broadly across all measurement disciplines.

The principal task of the International Committee for Weights and Measures (CIPM) is to promote world-wide uniformity in units of measurement and it does this by direct action or by submitting draft resolutions to the General Conference.
Duties of the CIPM include the responsibility to:
- discuss the work of the BIPM under the delegated authority of the CGPM;
- discuss metrological work that Member States decide to do in common, and set up and coordinate activities between specialists in metrology;
IMEKO is a non-governmental federation of 42 Member Organizations individually concerned with the advancement of measurement technology.
Its fundamental objectives are the promotion of
- international interchange of scientific and technical information
- in the field of measurement and instrumentation and
- the enhancement of international co-operation among scientists and engineers from research and industry
EUROLAB was created in 1990 on the basis of a memorandum of understanding signed by of 16 out of the 19 countries of the EEC and EFTA. EUROLAB is since October 1998 a legal entity setting it as the European Federation of National Associations of Measurement, Testing and Analytical Laboratories.
GULFMET, is a Regional Metrology Organization (RMO) established under the auspices of GCC Standardization Organization (GSO), bringing together National Metrology Institutes (NMIs) of the United Arab Emirates, Kingdom of Bahrain, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Sultanate of Oman, State of Qatar and State of Kuwait.
