Measurement Science and the Environment
Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) July 06, 2014
Join us for the 2014 NCSL International Workshop & Symposium in Orlando, Florida. The “Pressing Problems, Real Research” presentations will focus on clearly explaining the science of these issues while also investigating the relevant measurement challenges and solutions. This combination of fascinating science with a measurement perspective should make this an unforgettable series of talks for NCSLI participants. Topics include a range of vital scientific issues, including global climate change, alternate energy, advanced manufacturing and the U.S. metric program. Ncsli.org for complete technical program.
Participants are the following: Dr. James Whetstone – Special Assistant to the NIST Director for Greenhouse Gas Measurements, Dr. Gerald Fraser – Chief of the NIST Sensor Science Division, Dr. Greg Smallwood – NRC Program Leader, Measurement Science for Emerging Technologies, Dr. Thomas O’Brian – Chief of NIST Time and Frequency Division, Dr. Carl Williams – Chief of NIST Quantum Measurements Division, Director of the NIST Quantum Information Program, Dr. Hunter Fanney – Chief of the NIST Energy and Environment Division, Dr. David Seiler – Chief of the NIST Semiconductor and Dimensional Metrology Division, Dr. Michael Janezic – Acting Leader of the NIST Radio Frequency Field Group, Dr. Mark Stolorow – Director of the NIST Office of Law Enforcement Standards, Ms. Elizabeth Gentry – U.S. Metric Program Manager, Dr. Georgette Macdonald – NRC Program Leader, Scientific Support for the National Measurement System, Dr. Gregory Strouse – Leader of NIST Thermodynamic Metrology Group and Dr. Alan Steele – Chief Metrologist for Canada.
