The 2014 International Measurement Confederation (IMEKO) TC-1/TC-7/TC-13 Joint Symposium will be held in Funchal, Madeira Island, Portugal, on September 3-5, 2014. The symposium theme this year is "Measurement Science Behind Safety and Security." Topics of interest include fundamentals of measurement science, uncertainty evaluation, measurement education, and applications in physics, engineering, psychology, the social sciences, health care, the life sciences, and in everyday activities. For more information and abstract submission guidelines, see

Videos of some of the presentations made at last September's (15th, 2013,) IMEKO Joint Symposium in Genoa, Italy, are available on the Spectronet web site at: Rasch-oriented presentations listed there are by Nikolaus Bezruczko, Fabio Camargo, William Fisher, David Torres Irribarra, Luca Mari, Bob Massof, Andy Maul, Jack Stenner, and Mark Wilson. Photos of participants are available at the bottom of the page.

Videos and slides from selected presentations made at the 2011 IMEKO Joint Symposium in Jena, Germany are available at: Unfortunately, only one of the several Rasch-oriented presentations is available online (Fisher's). RMT readers will, however, find the introductory talks by Linss and Ruhm, and Ruhm's tutorial on error models, of particular interest. Photos at the bottom of the page include shots of Mark Wilson, Stefan Cano, Thomas Salzberger, Jack Stenner, and William Fisher.

Audio recordings and slides from presentations made at the 2010 IMEKO joint Symposium in London are available at: Presentations RMT readers may find of particular interest include those by Ludwik Finkelstein, Luca Mari, Karl Ruhm, Klaus-Dieter Sommer, Eric Benoit, Philip Thomas, and William Fisher. Photos of these and other speakers, including Nikolaus Bezruzcko, can be found at the bottom of that web page.

A roundtable on the International Vocabulary of Measurement (the VIM) was held at the 2009 IMEKO World Congress in Lisbon, Portugal: Presenters addressing the expanded scope of the recently released third edition of the VIM into psychology and the social sciences included Finkelstein, Mari, Pavese, Ehrlich, and Morawski. Other presentations of interest shown on that page include those by Rossi, Thomas, and others.

Slides from the 2008 IMEKO joint symposium in Annecy, France, are available at: Of particular interest here will be presentations by Finkelstein, Mari, Pavese, Ruhm, Guerra, Rossi, Goodman, Eugene, and Fisher.
