Measurement for Recovery - M4R
Measurement for Recovery - M4R


The 5th annual Dimensional X-ray Computed Tomography conference is returning to the National Physical Laboratory, Teddington, to be held between the 17th and 19th of May 2021. We are proud to announce that this year’s event will be supported by the AdvanCT project, where the project is funded by the European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research.  


The conference aims to present and disseminate the latest developments in X-ray computed tomography (XCT) for dimensional measurement and its industrial impact across a variety of applications. It is also expected to define synergies and collaboration opportunities between different organisations and commercial representatives. Submitted research will be presented in oral and poster formats, with prizes awarded for the best presentation.


                                                                   Main conference: 18th - 19th May  

                                                               Pre-conference training day: 17th May


The main themes of the conference include:

  •  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
  • More…


Call for short abstracts

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 is available here. Please complete the template and submit here. Please also indicate your preference for an oral presentation or a poster presentation.

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.
