International Conference - AMCTM

International Conference on Advanced Mathematical and Computational Tools in Metrology and Testing was held on 20-22 June 2011 in Göteborg, Sweden.
  • Call for abstracts
    Deadline 14 March - CLOSED
  • Registration
    See the link to the right - CLOSED

This is an event of IMEKO TC21 “Mathematical Tools for Measurements” supported and organised by SP Sveriges Tekniska Forskningsinstitut, Chalmers University of Technology and supported by EURAMET Focus Group “Software & Mathematical Tools for Metrology”. 

Immediately following the AMCTM 2011, the 6th workshop on Analysis of Dynamic Measurements was arranged and jointly organized by SP, NPL and PTB.

The conference general aims are:
  • To present and promote reliable and effective mathematical and computational tools in metrology.
  • To understand better the modelling, statistical and computational requirements in metrology;
  • To provide a forum for metrologists, mathematicians and software engineers that will encourage a more effective synthesis of skills, capabilities and resources.
  • To promote collaboration in the context of EU and International Programmes.
  • To support young researchers in metrology and related fields, also through training.
  • To address industrial requirements.
  • To cover both fields of calibration and testing

Submission of full papers for multi-author book “AMCTM IX”

Authors of accepted presentations (plenary, oral or poster) and who will attend the Conference are asked to submit full manuscripts electronically to Editor Dr F Pavese ( no later than by the end of the Conference, for consideration for publication in a multi-author book.  Manuscript format (trim size 9.00” x 6.00”) can be downloaded from Manuscripts should have the following strict maximum number of pages: invited/plenary: 12 pages; normal oral: 8 pages; poster: 5 pages. Following peer review, invited and selected submitted papers will be published by early 2012 in a multi-author book of about 400 pages “Advanced Mathematical and Computational Tools in Metrology and Testing IX” (World Scientific Publ. Co., Singapore). Detailed instructions for manuscript submission and paper publication are available from the Editor Dr F Pavese (
