The CMS will convene this year at the Snowbird Meeting and Convention Center in Snowbird, Utah, starting July 17 – July 21, 2017. The eminent membership association for 3D measurement professionals gathers annually to learn about technology achievements, network with industry experts, and get a pulse on the metrology industry. Weekly registration includes entry to more than 20 technical sessions, workshops, the ever-popular Measurement and Education Zone, CMSC Exhibition Hall, networking events, as well as post-conference access to all technical papers and presentation materials. CMSC 2017 affords an educational opportunity for anyone interested in 3D measurement and inspection solutions utilized in manufacturing, research and development, and various scientific fields. For the 33rd year in a row, the CMS has connected with metrologists through education and technology.

Each year, talented professionals travel to the CMSC from around the globe to share expert-level, original technical papers and presentations. Topics covered are practical skills and applications, proven best practices, and new techniques and innovations emerging in the measurement and inspection field. All technical papers are peer reviewed by the CMS Executive Board, and the top selections are published in the prestigious Journal of the CMSC. The event attracts metrologists, quality control professionals, manufacturing executives and managers, scientists, students, and educators looking to expand their knowledge of 3D portable measurement. Attendees from all technical experience levels will learn from industry leaders and benefit from the face-to-face consultations with metrology OEMs, software developers and service providers. Exhibitors are also welcome and should contact Exhibits Chair Phil Caudill at for more information.
