As COP26 approaches, discover how NPL plays a key role in enabling climate action through the delivery of accurate, reliable data that supports decision making and enables low carbon innovation.

6th Dimensional X-ray Computed Tomography conference

13-16 June 2022

Welcome to the 2022 Dimensional X-ray Computed Tomography (dXCT MMXXII) conference; an annual event, 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 defines synergies and opportunities of collaborations between different organisations and commercial representatives.

The 6th annual Dimensional X-ray Computed Tomography conference is being held at the University of Manchester, between the 13th and 16h of June 2022. We are proud to announce that this year’s event will be supported by NPL and linked with the launch year of the Royce Institute Building 

13-14 June 2022 Training days on latest software toolkits as well as access to imaging hardware facilities at the Royce Institute Building

15-16 June 2022 Main conference to be held at the Schuster Annex, at the University of Manchester. Including a drinks reception and (later then usual) launch of facilities at the Royce Building including a talk with an emphasis on Palaeontology X-ray based metrology.

The main themes of the conference include but are not limited to:
- New developments in XCT (technology improvement, correction of errors, etc.)
- XCT for dimensional metrology (traceability and verification)
- Dimensional XCT for industry applications (automotive, aerospace, additive manufacturing, etc.)
- Dimensional XCT for medical/bio applications
- Standardisation


Hosted at the University of Manchester this is aiming to include interaction especially with the new imaging facilities available from the Royce Institute and the National X-Ray Computed Tomography facility.

Call for Abstract and Posters

Papers in the format of short abstract are invited from academia and industry. Accepted research will be presented in oral and poster formats with prizes awarded for the best presentations. A template of the short abstract will be made available.

Accepted articles will also be invited to submit a full paper for consideration in Measurement Science and Technology, a prestigious scientific instrumentation and measurement journal and the first research journal produced by the Institute of Physics. The journal covers all aspects of the theory, practice and application of measurement, instrumentation and sensing across science and engineering.

Delegate challenge
An open invitation to all participating delegates to enter the Delegate Challenge, detailed information will be made available.
