"If you cannot measure it, you cannot improve it"

- Lord Kelvin


The success story of scientific conferences in the field of sensors and measurements technology in Nuremberg dates back more than 30 years.

Using the leading international trade fair SENSOR+TEST as a platform, several institutions and organizations have created sustainable networks for research and development specialists.

Feeling the need to concentrate the power of the long lasting experience from conferences, symposia and expert sessions in one common event with international visibility, the idea of the Sensor and Measurement Science International was born.

We cordially invite you to join and work with us to build up this ambitious project. Please find here a first set of information and do not hesitate to contact us for details.




The more accurate and reliable measured data are, the better is the opportunity to control and to advance the corresponding processes and products.

Appropriate metrology regulations, sophisticated measurement science and highly specialised sensors for the instrumentation of every possible process for monitoring our health and our environment are essential for relevant topics today, such as the Industrial Internet and the Internet of Things.

The SMSI brings scientists and researchers from all concerned scientific fields together to secure the success of these ideas in the future.
