Optical Metrology 2021

The premier European conference where scientists, engineers, researchers, and product developers gather to discuss the latest research in measurement systems, modeling, multimodal sensing, and inspection.

Optical Metrology 2021 is organized by SPIE.Europe

Optical Metrology will highlight new optical principles and systems for metrology, multimodal sensing, and machine vision with applications in industrial design, production engineering, process monitoring, maintenance support, biotechnology, vehicle navigation, multimedia technology, architecture, archaeology, and arts.

Special emphasis is directed to model-based, remote and active approaches, sensor fusion, robot guidance, image sequence processing and scene modelling, and biomaterials characterization, as well as to the preservation of our shared cultural heritage.
