BIPM/VAMAS Workshop: Emerging measurement challenges in Materials Metrology


20, 21 June 2016 - BIPM, Paris

The workshop will consider four themes in materials research, and will consider the new challenges for measurement science that are emerging in each of them. The outcomes of the workshop will include a report that summarizes the scope of the new challenges for measurement science in each of the four themes. It will also identify any requirements for additional coordination between BIPM and VAMAS to ensure that the necessary underpinning measurement traceability and infrastructure is available.
