The Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS) announced registration is open for its annual Coordinate Metrology Society Conference (CMSC) from July 22 - 26, 2019. The event will be held at Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld® in Orlando, Florida. This landmark occasion celebrates the conference that has been dedicated to measurement professionals worldwide for 35 years. The CMS will also pay tribute to the 10th anniversary of their popular Measurement Zone, a crowning achievement for the organization. The CMSC is designed to meet the continuing education needs of the portable and traditional CMM communities. Since 1984, industry experts have presented more than 525 original technical papers at the yearly event. In celebration, the CMS Executive Committee has special programming in the works for this year's seminal gathering.
In 2009, the Coordinate Metrology Society wanted to expand their education mandate with a large visible presence at the conference. The Measurement Zone was conceived and launched to provide engaging experiences for attendees through daily activities in various Zone areas, including knowledge and hands-on competition challenges using the latest metrology systems. Located in the heart of the CMSC Exhibition Hall, the Measurement Zone provides access to e-Learning tablets providing a variety of metrology topics from measurement uncertainty to dimensional control techniques. Other popular programs have been added in the past decade including the ever-popular CMS Quiz Show and the well-attended Ask the Experts event. With an eye on the future, the CMS continues to add value and content to the Measurement Zone for metrology practitioners and scientific researchers.
