CALL FOR PAPERS
2019 IMEKO TC-19 International Workshop on
METROLOGY FOR THE SEA
October 3 - 5, 2019, Genova, Italy
The Sea is the medium that allowed people to travel from one continent to another using vessels and even today despite the use of aircraft. It has been acting also as a great reservoir and source of foods for all living beings. However, for many generations it served as a landfill for depositing conventional and nuclear wastes, especially in its deep seabeds and there is a race to exploit minerals and resources, different from foods, encompassed in it. Its health is a very challenge for the survival of all humanity since it is one the most important environmental components targeted by the global warming: Tsunami and El Niño are consequences and indicators of bad development. As everyone may know, measuring is a step that allows major knowledge of a phenomenon or an asset. That is why MetroSea will serve as a forum for presenting recent advances in the field of measurement and instrumentation to be applied for the increasing of our knowledge for protecting and preserving the Sea.
MetroSea aims to gather people who work in developing instrumentation and measurement methods for the sea. Attention is paid, but not limited to, new technology for sea environment monitoring, metrology-assisted production in sea industry, ship component measurement, sensors and associated signal conditioning for the sea, and calibration methods for electronic test and measurement for marine applications.
All contributions will be peer reviewed on the basis of a full length manuscript and acceptance will be based on quality, originality and relevance. Accepted papers will be published in the Workshop Proceedings and extended versions of presented papers are eligible for post publication.
Special Session Proposal Deadline
There are moments when I walk about on the heights above Genoa, having glimpses and feelings such as Columbus once, perhaps from the very same place, sent out across the sea and into the future.
You will see a royal city, perched into an alpine hill, superb for men and walls, whose very aspect indicates it as Sea Lady: Genoa!…
Genoa! my birth-place–proud city! looking upon the blue waves of the Mediterranean sea--dost thou remember me in my boyhood, when thy cliffs and promontories, thy bright sky and gay vineyards, were my world?
Special sessions have the main aim of creating a mini-workshop on a specific topic, where researchers working on the same argument can make knowledge, familiarize, exchange ideas, create cooperation.
