Event description

Description

ISM


Measurement is perhaps the most fundamental scientific capability and underpins all scientific advances. This multi-disciplinary one-day conference will cover all aspects of precision measurement across all physical domains, highlighting the fundamental commonality of techniques and challenges in precision measurement; ranging from electromagnetic and optical measurement, through chemical sensing to gravity measurement.

Submissions are invited in a broad range of topics, including, but not restricted to:

  • Precision Measurement in acoustic, chemical, optical, time/frequency, space, electromagnetic, gravity domains
  • Quantum measurement
  • Multi-domain and cross-domain measurement
  • Precision measurement in challenging environments
  • Noise, error and uncertainty in measurement
  • Signal processing for precision measurement
  • Inversion problems in measurement

Presenters should submit a title, author list and 30-word abstract. Please highlight the presenting author and whether a poster or oral presentation is preferred.
