The 11th International Symposium on Measurement Technology and Intelligent Instruments (ISMTII) took place in Aachen and Braunschweig, Germany from July 1st until July 5th, 2013, hosted by RWTH Aachen University and Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt PTB.
We cordially invited you to participate in the upcoming event which is placed under the motto “Metrology – Master global challenges”. Megatrends such as globalization, networking, customizing, mobility, ecology, health and the demographic change describe emerging trends which will affect our life in the future. Various industries such as the automotive, aerospace, communication and medical engineering industry are involved. Metrology plays an important role in tackling these global challenges: Measurement technology enables for example the industrialization of manufacturing processes, makes it possible to improve the production towards zero defect manufacturing even for individual small batch production and to estimate the risk for a patient for a minimally invasive surgery.
The symposium offers the great chance to exchange international Know-How regarding measurement technology and its contribution to mastering the global challenges in conjunction with advancing the connection between research and application.
For all participants there will be the opportunity to take a technical tour to the metrological departments at the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology (IPT) and at the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering (WZL) as well as a tour to the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) in Braunschweig.
The motto megatrends will also be addressed in the day program for accompanying people: The resource “water” will be continuously present when visiting Aachen with the famous cathedral. Aachen’s history as a health resort due to its mineral spring and the many fountains in the city will be focused on. The consequences of “globalization” can be experienced when visiting Maastricht in the Netherlands. The border to another country can be crossed without even recognizing it.
