The 6th CCM International Conference on Pressure and Vacuum Metrology in conjunction with the 5th IMEKO TC16 International Conference will take place from May 7-10, 2017 in Pereira, Colombia.

The CCM International Conference on Pressure and Vacuum Metrology is the world's leading conference on Measurement-related issues in the pressure and vacuum fields. The conference will review research and developing work on the highest quality primary standards and on the dissemination of traceability to the most exacting and demanding users in the range from 10 -9 Pa to 10 10 Pa.

This is the 6th conference in a series that began in 1988. Since 1993, has been held every 6 years and was extended to include the vacuum metrology field in 1999. The conference is jointly organized by the Working Group for Pressure and Vacuum (WG PV) within the Committee for Mass and Related Quantities (CCM), as one of the advisory committees of the meter convention.

The IMEKO TC16 International Conference on Pressure and Vacuum Measurement focuses on the practical aspects of pressure and vacuum measurement mainly for industrial sectors like processing and semiconductor industry, photovoltaics, coating, metallurgy, packaging, pharmaceuticals among others, as well for research applications.

The conference is organized by the Technical Committee 16 for Pressure and Vacuum Measurement of the International Measurement Confederation IMEKO and has been held in 2001, 2003, 2007, and 2011.

English will be the language of the conferences.
