Overview

 

Organised by Professor Xiangqian Jane Jiang and Professor David Whitehouse

Following on from the Royal Society Discussion meeting, this Satellite meeting explores advanced metrology for precision engineering by examining the mathematical fundaments, physical principles, methodologies, characterisation analysis, and possible solutions to some of the measurement challenges that are currently limiting future developments in precision engineering.

Experts in their field will discuss the future applications in precision engineering and the current technological restrictions on their measurement requirements. The satellite meeting will produce a vision that identifies the challenges in advanced metrology for precision engineering; anticipating that this will inspire academia and industry to address the solutions of these open problems.
