IMEKO XXII World Congress

03 September 2018 - 06 September 2018

The XXII World Congress of the International Measurement Confederation (IMEKO), 3 – 6 September 2018, is being held in the United Kingdom for the first time in over 40 years, hosted by the Institute of Measurement and Control, with active involvement from NPL and many other UK professional bodies, universities and industry.

Belfast, the capital city of Northern Ireland, is playing host to delegates from across the world, for what promises to be an interesting, scientifically challenging and busy World Congress. Measurement, control and the instrumentation needed are key aspects in industry that underpin economic prosperity across the world and the event brings together leading experts from many countries to report on the latest and most exciting developments in their fields. 'Knowledge through Measurement', a theme from the work of Lord Kelvin, the great scientist, engineer and entrepreneur who was born in Belfast, is the strapline for IMEKO 2018.

The Invited and Keynote Speakers are some of the most distinguished in their field and the many sessions held during the week will provide real insight into what is new in this most topical and economically important of fields. The exhibition aims to showcase some of the leading developments in industry from the UK, Europe and, indeed, across the world.
