    Biomedical measurements and instrumentation are a field of great interest for the international scientific community. They are constantly updated by means of emerging technologies related to physics, chemistry, material science, micro & nanotechnologies, biology and medicine.  IMEKO TC13 is announcing the organization of an important event dedicated to measurements and instrumentation for biology and medicine. This event will be held at the Conference center located at "Ecotekne" campus, an important facility of the University of Salento. The Symposium, under the auspices of IMEKO and the Department of Innovation Engineering (University of Salento), intends to play a role of specific forum for scientific discussions on instrumentation and measurements to be applied in the area of biomedical measurements. Latest findings and advanced researches are welcome and will find dedicated importance as keynote and invited presentation as well as in special, regular and poster sessions. The University of Salento, the University of Reggio Calabria as well as CNR-IFC have a robust tradition in biomedical fields. "Ecotekne" campus includes different laboratories and research centers working on specific applications of biomedical instrumentation and measurements.

    The conference is hosted under the auspices of IMEKO, the International Metrology Confederation and is open academia, researchers and engineers with a keen interest and new ideas in metrology relating to the fields of Mass, Force, Torque, Hardness and Vibration. The conference aim is to provide a platform for the presentation of research that deal with recent advancement in consideration of the highest measurement accuracy obtainable in these fields, as achieved by NMI’s and other interested parties.

    We believe this Conference will be another successful convocation of people in the metrology world.

    The first conference in South Africa will most certainly offer a venue where participants will not only enrich their professional knowledge base, but also deepen friendship with peers.

    We look forward to meeting you all in Cape Town 2014, the Mother city of South Africa.
