World Metrology Day 2016 organized by PACMAN at CERN

PACMAN is an Innovative Doctoral Program Network, offering training to 10 Early Stage Researchers hosted by CERN thanks to the European Commission’s FP7 Marie Curie Actions.

On the occasion of World Metrology Day 2016, PACMAN will be organizing an A&T sector seminar at CERN (Geneva), with talks by the coordinator of project, Dr. Hélène Mainaud Durand, and by the Work Packages leaders – Michele Modena, Prof. Stephan Russenschuck and Manfred Wendt – who will present the project and will give an account of the results achieved by the ESRs during their training.

The technical objective of the PACMAN project is to develop very high accuracy metrology and alignment tools and validate them in a single automatic test stand integrating all of them. This multidisciplinary research project strengthens the co-operation between the most innovative universities, laboratories and industries.

PACMAN aims to develop new sensors, improve the already existent hardware and methodology for alignment measurements and metrology, and integrate them into an industrial environment.

WMD 2016 in Poland

This year the agenda of the World Metrology Day 2016 celebration at the Central Office of Measures in Warsaw includes two main events, which will take place on 19-20 May 2016:

  • the “Open Day” for the middle school students (19 May),
  • the Seminar “Measurements in a dynamic world” (20 May).

During the first event on 19 May students and teachers will see presentations on measurements in the area of electrical quantities. The presentations will focus on ohm's law and measurements of current ratio, voltage and resistance. The young visitors will also have an opportunity to observe differences in power consumption while using a common bulb or LED. They will also learn how to calculate electrical power. The conductivity tests of different kinds of materials and different types of resistors, capacitors, voltage sources, etc. will be presented as well. To make students aware of the energy consumption level while using different light sources, mobile phone chargers, radio and domestic electrical appliances while in stand-by mode the employees of GUM will show some comparisons. The main aim of the presentations is to explain how to use the electrical power economically.

Another important topic of the “Open Day” will be presentations on time measurements. The guests will be able to check their watch's rate and test their time of reaction - in other words their reflex.
In the second part of the World Metrology Day 2016 celebrations, which will take place on 20 May, the Central Office of Measures is organizing a seminar “Measurement in a dynamic world”. The agenda of this event includes lectures in the field of:

  • chemical standards and reference materials;
  • changing of measurement units definitions;
  • measurement accuracy and practice in metrology.

After the lectures, the participants will be invited to visit the laboratories of the Central Office of Measures.

World Metrology Day in Portugal

Em Metrologia, são múltiplos os domínios onde podemos encontrar esta necessidade de caracterizar uma mensuranda que é variável no momento da medição, pese embora o facto de que os sensores utilizados nessa determinação estejam calibrados, na maioria das vezes, em condições estáticas ou sujeitas a um sinal simples e repetitivo: medições mecânicas de mobilidade desde a indústria automóvel à robotização, medições dinâmicas de torção, força e pressão, medições dinâmicas de caudal de líquidos e gases, medições termométricas de impulso de calor e de aplicações nucleares, são apenas alguns dos exemplos.

O IPQ, representante do BIPM e da OIML em Portugal, associa-se à comemoração do Dia Mundial da Metrologia 2016, no próximo dia 20 de maio, através de um Dia Aberto, com palestras e visitas aos Laboratórios e ao Museu da Metrologia.

WMD 2016 in the Russian Federation

In connection with the 2016 World Metrology Day, our Institute of Metrology (VNIIM) maintains a special webpage dedicated to this event (www.vniim.ru/day-metrology.html), where Russian translations of the Directors’ Messages and Posters are published (e.g. www.vniim.ru/files/izm-v-din-mire-2016.pdf).

Also, in commemoration of both the Day of Russian Science and World Metrology Day our Metrology Museum has opened an exhibition of scientific metrology artefacts and documents  (new arrivials): http://museum.vniim.ru/vist-exp-2015-2016.html (in Russian).

During the week (17-20 May 2016) our Institute participates in organizing and holding the International Innovations Forum and Exhibition “Precise Measurements as the Basis of Quality and Safety” in Moscow and timed to coincide with World Metrology Day: http://expo.vdnh.ru/en/calendar/guest/Precise-Measurements/.

Saint Lucia


SLBS observes World Metrology Day with focus on Students in Science

Saint Lucia will join the rest of the world in marking World Metrology Day on Friday 20 May 2016 under the theme Measurements in a dynamic world.  The Saint Lucia Bureau of Standards, which is also the National Metrology Institute, is marking the observance with a focus on students in science specifically physics.

The SLBS has invited students of  Form 4 (Grade 10) Physics classes in the North of the island from six (6) secondary schools to visit our Metrology Laboratory where physics is applied in the verification and calibration of measuring instruments.

The SLBS will extend the visit to schools in the South later in the year when we observe World Standards Day in October.

Metrology is the science of measurement. Metrology and the use of the International System of Units or metric system of measurement is part of the Physics Syllabus of the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) administered by the Caribbean Examinations Council (www.cxc.org).

This visit to our Metrology Laboratory we hope will inspire the next generation of metrologists, physicists and engineers. Our commemoration of World Metrology Day 2016 is particularly poignant for the SLBS.  In November 2015 Saint Lucia became the first Caribbean country and smallest nation in the world to receive the prestigious OIML Award for Excellent Contributions in Legal Metrology in Developing Countries.

Legal metrology is the application of  legal requirements to measurements and measuring instruments and the International Organization of  Legal Metrology (OIML) is the world's premier intergovernmental treaty organization for legal metrology.

The Saint Lucia Bureau of Standards is keen to work with students to support interest in science and to raise awareness and promote an appreciation among them for quality and standards.
