IMEKO TC6: First International Conference on Metrology and Digital Transformation

M4Dconf 2022

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.

Call for Special Sessions

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.

Special Sessions

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.
