LVMC ’13 Call for Presentations

The LVMC is the only European event solely dedicated to portable and large volume 3D measurement technology.

We are now accepting submissions for presentations for this year’s show. Presentations may be one of two lengths: 15 minutes of presentation followed by a 5 minute Q&A session, or 25 minutes of presentation followed by a 5 minute Q&A session.

New this year… we are also accepting submissions for posters. These will be on display throughout the conference and poster owners will be expected to be present at their posters for two 1-hour periods during the conference networking sessions when they can explain their work and answer questions.

Please indicate if your submission is for a presentation or poster, or if you are willing to offer either format.

NPL have kindly offered a £250 prize for the best paper and poster submitted, as voted for by LVMC participants.

Professionals working in an industrial, academic or consultative capacity within the field of dimensional metrology. Technical employees of vendor and metrology OEM companies will be accepted too, subject to the presentation criteria below.

2013 will see the biggest and best LVMC yet, with more technical content, more networking and more technical expertise than ever before – from an all new venue.

Underpinning the event as always is the key theme of Process Improvement Through Measurement Technology. We are interested to hear from you if you have developments to present that would include:

Developments in metrology education
Automation of metrology applications in shop floor environments
Novel and unusual adaptations and applications of existing metrology technology
Developments that will lead to the future of metrology
Discussions of the challenges and needs of the dimension metrology community
As well as sharing your work with a group of like minded professionals, and helping to advance understanding and development within the field, your work will also be published on the LVMC website ( Furthermore, the conference entrance fee for one speaker per presentation or poster will be waived.

Important Deadline for Submission of both Papers and Posters: Monday 28th June 2013
