A NASCAR race can be won or lost due to minor variations in tire pressure or to fractions of an inch in vehicle height. A Nashville musician depends on the quality of sound in his electric guitar -- built from parts with exacting specifications. Industrial metrology laboratories calibrate equipment used to determine whether a product is shipped to a customer or if it must be returned for re-work. Legal Metrology programs ensure that the measurements associated with commerce are accurate and reliable. Technicians to top metrology lab management require and rely on predictable, repeatable, verifiable, and sustainable measurement standards. All of these examples require a sound and cohesive metrology and quality system to be in place.

Technical Developments, Papers, Tutorials and Presentations

Metrology's impact on society is profound, and as measurement science continues to advance at the near speed of light, savvy metrology and calibration experts at all levels in every discipline from countries all over the globe will be present, participating and engaged in one of NCSL International's 26 advanced scientific technical and educational metrology tutorials, 5 parallel conference tracks, or be presenting one of over 135 anticipated technical papers covering subjects ranging from the discrete and essential discipline of "uncertainty in measurement" -- to ISO/IEC 17025 -- to laboratory accreditations, and much more.

NCSL International's unique conference forum affords unprecedented networking opportunities, immediate access to best practices, industry innovations, advanced training tutorials, as well as featuring the latest products, services and equipment demonstrations hosted by over 128 top industry exhibitors.
