The second 2021 issue of Acta IMEKO is published
Measurement has always been a tool by which we can observe the world around us. This concept was once again confirmed during the 24th IMEKO Technical Committee 4 (TC4) International Symposium, which showed how topics related to the world of measurement range across many fields of knowledge ... The 24th edition of the Symposium was originally planned to be held in Palermo, Italy; however, due to the COVID-19 emergency, the committee was forced to organise the event as a virtual conference ... As in the last editions, the 2020 Symposium covered a large number of engineering fields, from digitalisation to renewable energy and from acoustic and mechanical measurements to biomedical and chemical fields ... we hope that the readers will find this issue of Acta IMEKO useful and inspiring.
(From the editorial by Giuseppe Caravello and Ciro Spataro, Guest Editors)
This issue includes a General Track aimed to collect contributions that do not relate to a specific event. As Editor in Chief, it is my pleasure to give readers an overview of these papers, with the aim of encouraging potential authors to consider sharing their research through Acta IMEKO ... The heterogeneous topics of the papers submitted to the General Track confirm Acta IMEKO is the natural platform for disseminating measurement information and stimulating collaboration among researchers of many different fields but united by their common interest in measurement science and technologies.
(From the editorial by Prof. Francesco Lamonaca, Ph.D., Editor-in-Chief of Acta IMEKO)
In memory of Tamás Kemény
It is with great sadness that we inform of the passing of Dr. Tamás Kemény. He was a long-time Colleague and Friend in IMEKO, serving the organisation almost right from the start. Over a couple of decades, he was our Secretary-General and an active member of the Technical Committee 3 (TC3), dedicated to the Measurement of Force, Mass, and Torque. In addition, he was known for promoting IMEKO and science with his editorial and publication work and presentations. Read some of Tamás's words when he retired.

The extended papers of MetroArchaeo give an interesting overview of the latest findings in measurement methods and techniques applied for the enhancement, characterization and preservation of archaeological and cultural heritage. The extended papers of APMF show recent progress of the research on the measurements in the fields of mass, pressure, and flow in the Asia-Pacific region.

IMEKO events and the coronavirus
Dear friends of IMEKO, dear colleagues,
The spread of the coronavirus and the measures taken in different countries forced the organizers of some of the events either to cancel the event or to postpone it. Please check the latest information on our Coming Events page.
World Metrology Day (WMD) 2021
The theme for the World Metrology Day (WMD) 2021 - as always on 20 May - is in this year: Measurement for Health. From the website of the WMD: "This theme was chosen to create awareness of the important role measurement plays in health, and thus in the wellbeing of every one of us. Indeed more widely metrology, the science of measurement, plays a central role in scientific discovery and innovation, industrial manufacturing and international trade, in improving the quality of life and in protecting the global environment."
