The IIIrd International Scientific Conference “Reference Materials in Measurement and Technology” will be held in Ekaterinburg (Russia) from 11 to 14 September 2018 (

The main purpose of the conference is to provide a platform for the scientific research society and business representatives, aimed at exchange of experience and receipt of current information on the latest achievements and technologies in the field of reference materials (RMs).

This conference is organized by Rosstandart in concert with Ural Research Institute for Metrology.

The conference will cover all areas where reference materials (RMs) play a certain role. The following issues will be discussed at the conference:

  • academic and practice-based aspects of development, production, distribution and use of reference materials;
  • metrological assurance of measurements in the field of biological RMs, multi-element RMs, pharmaceuticals, quality control, food safety, environmental monitoring, ferrous and non-ferrous industry, nuclear industry etc.;
  • measurement result processing, measurement traceability, commutability;
  • modern methods for analysis of substances and materials (chemical and physico-chemical methods, atomic and molecular spectroscopy, chromatography, X-ray spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, nuclear-physical methods of analysis, etc.);
  • interlaboratory comparison testing.

The conference will include plenary and poster sessions, demonstrations of measurement capabilities of RM and analytical equipment producers.

Conference materials will be published in a special issue of the journal “Reference Materials”.

Scientists and experts in the field of chemistry, metrologists, specialists from analytical laboratories and companies, enterprises and organizations, engaged in RM development, distribution and use as well as other interested persons are invited to participate in the IIIrd International Scientific Conference "Reference Materials in Measurement and Technology".
The conference will be held in Ekaterinburg, one of the biggest centers for chemistry and industry in Russia. Ekaterinburg is a city with rich historical and cultural heritage, having unique historical monuments, museums, churches. Ekaterinburg is a scientific and business center of the Ural region of Russia.
