International Metrology Conference - CPEM 2022

What is CPEM 2022?

There is no better conference than CPEM for all metrology volt-/amp-/ohm-/time-/farad-nuts. This is international bi-annual Conference on Precision Electromagnetic Measurements. Types of organizations that participate at CPEM are the National Primary Standards Laboratories, big industrial organizations specializing in highest accuracy electrical test and measurement equipment, government standards laboratories that interact extensively with national laboratories and universities that conduct research on precision measurements, standards and related fundamental constants study. These guys used to measure stuff not to ppm but to ppb levels and work with best stuff scientific community can offer.

Attendance at CPEM is considered a must item for the researchers and metrologists who are at the frontier of electrical measurements. CPEM is focused to electromagnetic measurements at the highest accuracy levels, covering the frequency spectrum from DC to the optical region. The use of quantum effects and devices to achieve this accuracy is of particular focus.

Two years ago CPEM 2020 in-person was cancelled due to COVID19 pandemic and it moved to virtual only online presentation program. Amount of presentations and information was amazing and it was well worth the registration fee asked for it. CPEM 2020 was organized by NCSLI and NIST in Boulder, CO. Here’s full glossary of all presentations and papers presented in CPEM 2020 conference. Most of these presentations have published research paper that is available on IEEE and with similar publishers.

But now it is time to CPEM 2022. It is first in-person conference since 2018, this time organized by New Zealand with cooperation with NMIA of Australia.

Date & Time: Mon, December 12, 2022 – Fri, December 16, 2022

Location: Michael Fowler Centre, Wellington, New Zealand

Full programme is available on CPEM 2022 web-site here. It includes MSL lab tours, large venue with four days of amazing presentations for meal breaks and discussion time in auditorium sessions. This year is particularly remarkable, because this year is 60 years since Brian D. Josephson predicted mathematical relationship for current and voltage in superconducting junctions and later won Nobel Prize in Physics 1973.

Key tracks covered by CPEM are:

  • Voltage, Current, Resistance
  • RF and Microwave
  • Optics and Photonics
  • Electrical energy and power
  • High Voltage, High Current
  • Novel metrology
  • Kibble Balance (electrical part of it)
  • Quantum Voltage
  • Quantum Resistance
  • Quantum Impedance
  • Quantum others

I am also excited to learn that together with in-person conference presenters and organizers will also provide online virtual-only program, just like in CPEM2020. This brings latest and greatest metrology information and research advancement to a wider audience, who are not able to travel for conference in New Zealand this time. With virtual program all sessions of the CPEM 2022 conference will be live-streamed and also available to view at any time over the next 90 days post-conference.

Virtual registration for CPEM2022 is available at a cost of NZ$850 (about US$560) and you can register here on CPEM2022 website right now. You will be provided with details to program site in confirmation email. Every delegate (virtual or in-person) must complete registration to access papers and presentations.

Of course, huge event like this which host hundreds of researches is impossible without sponsors and industry support. This year we can appreciate the conference thanks to:

Looking forward to learn lot more about electromagnetic measurements this December and explore this interesting field deeper, thanks to event like this. Meet you at the conference! :)
