Moin! and Welcome to the 24th IMEKO World Congress!
Welcome to Hamburg, Germany!
As the Chairman of the IMEKO XXIV World Congress it is a great honor and privilege to welcome you to Hamburg, cosmopolitan city in the north of Germany.
Under the headline Think Metrology, we will shed light on both well-established and new, highly current topics such as digitalization.
Hamburg has been a gateway from Germany and Europe to the rest of the world for over 1400 years. Over the centuries, trade and innovation have been instrumental in the growth and development of the city, now the second largest in Germany. This and over 20,000 researchers and university students at numerous renowned institutions make Hamburg the perfect location for science and research.
The Hanseatic city owes its many charms to its wide variety of cultural and recreational offerings. No amenity has been neglected, and when it comes to food, fun and entertainment, Hamburg leaves visitors spoilt for choice. Lovers of local and international cuisine are served in style – from dockside bars around the fish market to fine dining further down the banks of the Elbe River and countless eateries in the heart of the city.
The conference center is just as international and modern as the metropolis it calls home. The brand-new CCH congress center is one of the biggest and most modern in Europe whose cutting-edge technology fulfills international standards of sustainability and accessibility.
This all creates the perfect setting for a high-quality program involving teams of experts and high-ranking speakers. More than 700 internationally leading metrologists, who are members of 25 technical committees, will give insight into diverse and innovative fields of metrology.
Furthermore, to complement the technical program and to emphasize the strong connection between IMEKO and industry, there will be an exhibition in the halls of the congress center and technical visits to high-ranking sites.
Our aim is to provide a broad community with a venue for exchanging ideas and facilitating networking and innovation.
Visit one of the top ten cities worldwide and be part of a unique event on an international scale!
A dedicated organizing team from PTB is looking forward to welcoming you.
