Richard Leach and Rong Su attended the 13th International Symposium of Measurement and Intelligent Instruments

Richard Leach and Rong Su attended the 13th International Symposium of Measurement and Intelligent Instruments in Xi’an, China from 22nd to 25th September 2017. The meeting was attended by over 200 metrology experts and students, from a mixture of industrial and research backgrounds. Many of the themes this year were well-aligned to the work of MMT and there was a focus of in-line measurement in manufacturing. Attendance of the conference was partially funded by a joint H2020 project to encourage collaboration between EU and China (see project details).

Richard presented a keynote paper entitled “Information-rich metrology: changing the game” (related paper here) and Rong presented an oral paper on our work on optical distortion correction with Peter Ekberg of KTH, entitled: “High-precision lateral distortion correction in 2D and 3D optical imaging systems using an arbitrary surface” (see related journal paper). As a long-term member, Richard attended the board meeting of the International Committee of Measurement and Instrumentation (ICMI) and presented a proposal to host the 15th ISMTII in 2021 – this was accepted. The 14th ISMTII will be in Niigata, Japan in 2019.
