50th Anniversary Measurement Showcase

National Physical Laboratory
Nov 2014

BSSM organised a special event to celebrate its fiftieth anniversary which took place at the National Physical Laboratory, Teddington, London, UK on 4 November 2014. A reception and dinner took place in the evening at the Park Hotel in Teddington.

As part of the event, the "Measurement Showcase" comprised a series of presentations covering the development and future prospects of the key experimental techniques in wide usage in current research and industrial applications. Internationally leading researchers across a range of subject areas attended to present their work in plenary sessions.

The Showcase followed on from the successful ICEM16 conference organised by BSSM, and celebrated achievements alongside exciting new developments. There was an exhibition of current instrumentation as well as a ‘trip down memory lane’ with exhibitors displaying old cameras and equipment, and participants also presented posters on their work.
