TC-25 - Medical and Biological Measurements

The goals of this Committee are to establish, develop, promote and support a cooperation among researchers involved in the different fields of medical measurements. Topics of these cooperations could be:

  • Sensors for the measurement of clinical and/or biological parameters. Many new or improved sensors are continuosly developed that allow new or more accurate measurements and diagnoses to be performed.
  • Measurement techniques for athletic performance
  • Data processing either conventional or non conventional. The enormous amount of data generated by different kinds of intruments, such as TAC and NMR, requires processing strategies which help the physicians to extract the most important features of each exam.
  • Instrument and procedure characterisation. Medical instruments and related data processing deeply interact with the phisician who emit the diagnoses. This is a remarkable difference with respect to other 'conventional' instruments where standard accepted procedures are used for the uncertainty expression.
  • Instrument interoperativity and interconnection. Most diagnoses are obtained by combining tests results generated by different instruments. The 'data fusion' is often performed by the phisician only at the end of the measurements process, but a more easy possibility to access raw data generated by the different instruments could gratly improve the diagnois quality. The DICOM standard represents a noticeably improvement over the past, but this is an endless problem.
  • Instruments and devices for impaired people. The advances in the digital processing and the micro and nanotecnology open new and surprising possibilities to help people who need help. This is a higly ethical research everyone should be committed to.
  • Maintain liasons with other committees, groups, societies, and organizations working on soft-computing technologies and in the applications fields.

This is a young committee: we need your help to have it growing and making it usefull for the scientific community of both medical and measurement researchers! Mail me (marco.parvis@polito.it) suggestions, advices and every thing you belive could be useful.

TC-34 - Nanotechnology in Instrumentation and Measurement

The goals of this Committee are to establish, develop, promote and support cooperation among researchers, industry & academia involved in different fields of nanotechnology instrumentation and measurement. Topics of these cooperations include:

-Sensors for the measurement of nanotechnology properties. Many new or improved sensors are continuously developed that allow new or more accurate measurements to be performed.

-Promote the use of a variety of imaging techniques and methodologies in the fields of instrumentation, measurement, and test, such as scanning probe microscopy, electron microscopy and more.

-Instrument and procedure characterisation. Nanotechnology instruments and related data processing depend deeply upon the training and background of the researcher who uses them.

-Promote the exchange of technical advances among experimentalists and theorists working in different areas of the field.

-Maintain a list of research laboratory capabilities and researcher contact information for nanomaterial and nanosensor characterization.

-Promote the utilization of such technologies in real applications.

-Address the increasing demand for performance and functionality in nanomaterials and nanotechnology.

-Address the increasing need for common terminology throughout nanotechnology.

-Instrument interoperativity and interconnection. Most analyses are obtained by combining test results generated by different instruments. The 'data fusion' is often performed by the scientist or engineer only at the end of the measurement process, but a standard format for raw data generated by the different instruments could greatly improve quality and performance. Standards may need to be developed to promote these ends.

-Attract interest of the scientific, academic and industrial communities in the exploration of advanced instrumentation and measurement methods in nanotechnology.

-Capture and disseminate technical information relative to the field via workshops, conferences, and formal papers.

-Maintain liaison with other groups, societies, and organizations working in the same or related fields while promoting the instrumentation and measurement aspects at nanotechnology conferences and in international standards.

This is a young committee: we need your help to have it growing and making it useful for the scientific community of both nanotech instrument and measurement researchers!

TC-37 - Measurements and Networking

The purpose of the TC-37 is to increase awareness and interest in networking and to encourage I&M Society members to apply their skills and extend their knowledge of networking-related problems in I&M application field. TC-37 promotes the international cooperation and integration of researchers belonging to the IMS with ones coming from other areas of the telecommunication and information technologies. In particular, enforces are made for highlighting the important contribution of a metrological approach inside different areas of networking, looking also to emerging fields as IoT, Software Defined Radio, Software Defined Networks, Coexistence and interference problems in wireless networks, to cite a few. To these aims, TC-37 is in touch with several other bodies in the networking world, as IP Performance Metrics working group of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and the SIGMETRICS special interest group of Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).

The main fields of expertise include Measurement for networking (Methods and Techniques for Network Performance assessment, QoE and QoS in computer networks, Traffic and Protocol Analysis, In service testing), Networking for measurements (WSN design, implementation and performance assessment, Indoor positioning, Synchronization issues, Vehicular networks, Cognitive radio), Measurements for security in networks (Anomaly and intrusion detection, Application Level Trust and Security, Wireless and Mobile Network Security, Coexistence and interference problems in sensor networks).

The TC organizes special sessions at I2MTC, joins in the sponsorship of specific conferences, organizes tutorial sessions, etc, as well as it is involved in the organization of the biennial IEEE Workshop on Measurement and Networking.

As for the standardization activity, the TC-37 supports Working Groups involved in the development of standards sponsored or co-sponsored by IMS.    

The TC-37 has links with other I&M technical committees, e.g., TC-13 Wireless and Telecommunications in Measurements and TC-36 Industrial Inspection.
