Benefits of Presenting at the Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference (CMSC):

The benefits of presenting at the annual Coordinate Metrology System Conference are three-fold:

1)Presenting provides a tremendous opportunity for exposure and recognition by your peers in the field of coordinate metrology.

2)The Executive Committee waives the conference registration and membership fees for individuals presenting at the annual conference. (NOTE: In the case of presentations where there are multiple authors or contributors, the Executive Committee is only able to waive one conference registration and membership fee.)

3)The Coordinate Metrology Society will publish both technical papers and presentations on the CMSC website. Additionally, peer-selected technical papers will be published in The Journal of the CMSC, which is mailed to a large circulation, and distributed at trade shows or conferences that influence participation at the annual CMSC.
