The second 2019 issue of Acta IMEKO is published

Distinguished Readers,

The here finalized issue of Acta IMEKO presents research works accepted for the special section devoted to the 2018 IEEE International Workshop on Metrology for Industry 4.0 & IoT (MetroInd4.0&IoT). The conference was hosted by the University of Brescia, Brescia, Italy, and took place on April 16 - 18, 2018. The workshop aimed to discuss the contributions, the challenges and the new opportunities offered by Industry 4.0 and Internet of Things (IoT) paradigms for the development of new measurement methods and apparatus.
Therefore, MetroInd4.0&IoT was the ideal place where researchers and practitioners from industry, academia, government and standardization committee can meet to review and discuss most recent trends in the area of interest and share innovative research directions ...

World Metrology Day (WMD) 2019

The theme for World Metrology Day (WMD) 2019 on 20 May is "The International System of Units Fundamentally better". This theme was chosen because on 16 November 2018, the General Conference on Weights and Measures agreed perhaps one of the most significant revisions to the International System of Units (the SI) since its inception. Research into new measurement methods, including those using quantum phenomena, underpin the change which comes into force on 20 May 2019.

The SI is now based on a set of definitions each linked to the laws of physics and have the advantage of being able to embrace further improvements in measurement science and technology to meet the needs of future users for many years to come. The science of measurement plays a central role in scientific fields, improves the quality of life and protects the global environment.
