InstMC Poster Prize 

The Institute of Measurement and Control, host of IMEKO2018, is pleased to announce a prize for the best poster presented at the Congress. The InstMC Poster Prize will consist of a certificate and a cash prize of £100  and will be presented to the winning author(s) on the final day of the Congress. All accepted posters will automatically be entered for the competition, and will be assessed based on:

  • Originality       - 50%
  • Methodology    - 30%
  • Clarity             - 20%

The winner will be decided by a panel of judges chaired by Professor Ken Grattan, President of IMEKO.

S&A Poster Prize 

The Instrument Science and Technology Group of the Institute of Physics is pleased to announce three prizes in connection with the Sensors and Their Applications/IMEKO 2018 co-located conferences taking place at the Belfast Waterfront between 3-6th September 2018. The prizes, in recognition of the support from the Institute for this important international event, will be for the best presentation, and will consist of a Winner’s Prize of £100 and two Highly Commended prizes of £50 each. Presentations from all participants will be eligible.

Publication of Papers – Proceedings

All accepted papers will be published in the Congress Proceedings as Institute of Physics (IOP) open access Journal of Physics: Conference Series (JPCS) and made available at the Congress. It is indexed in Inspec, Scopus and ISI Web of Science (WoS).

IOP Conference Series operates a publishing license, under which authors retain copyright of their papers and they no longer need to sign and submit copyright assignment forms. Any author who wishes to publish in IOP Conference Series must agree to the terms of the license and by submitting a paper for publication it is assumed all authors of the paper agree, in full, to the terms and conditions of the license available online.

In addition, individual Technical Committees of IMEKO (TCs) will be able to put forward a subset of papers (normally between 6-8 papers) presented at the Congress for further substantial extension and modification. Such modified and extended papers could then be considered for publication in Measurement under Special Section.
