23 Nov 2018   |   9.00 AM – 6.30 PM,   RESORTS WORLD SENTOSA CONVENTION CENTRE

The 34th Asia Pacific Metrology Programme



 

In conjunction with the 34th Asia Pacific Metrology Programme General Assembly and Related Meetings (APMP 2018), National Metrology Centre and Health Sciences Authority (HSA) jointly organised the APMP 2018 Symposium on 28 Nov 2018. The symposium was attended by about 350 APMP delegates and local participants, including some 100 participants from the industry.

 

The theme of the Symposium was “Future of Metrology, Future of Industry”. During the morning plenary session, prominent speakers shared insights on the international system of units (SI) redefinition and its implications for the future of metrology and industry. This was followed by two parallel track sessions in the afternoon, at which the participants further discussed on SI Redefinition and its Impact, and Metrology for Manufacturing Digitalisation.
