Dimensional X-ray Computed Tomography Conference

The Dimensional X-ray Computed Tomography (dXCT) conference is an annual conference, coordinated by the NPL, presenting and disseminating the latest developments in XCT for dimensional measurement and its industrial impact across a variety of applications. The conference is expected to define synergies and opportunities of collaborations between different organisations and commercial representatives.

In it's 5th year it is being hosted at The University of Manchester; Royce Institute and HMXIF.

Venue and Location

The conference will take place in the Schuster Building, at the University of Manchester which has excellent road, rail and train links. For details of how to get to Manchester, please visit the University 'How to find us' page.
