Developing New International Standards
Prof Paul Scott

Professor Paul Scott

From Monday 4 February to Friday 8 February, Professor Dame Jane Jiang and Professor Paul Scott will be attending an ISO Technical Committee (TC 213) meeting which is being held at CERN in Geneva.

200 expert delegates from around world will be in attendance to review, edit and discuss writing new international standards in dimensional and geometrical product specifications and verification which is the responsibility of TC 213.

In addition to presenting his ISO document on segmentation and partitioning, Professor Scott will convene the Maths for GPS and the Filtration working groups meetings and lead the plenary session on the final day.

The visit to CERN will also give the Professors the opportunity to see up close some of the complex scientific instruments where optical sensors developed within the CPT are being applied to address the technical challenges present in such an ambitious project.

Aside from the meeting, Professor Scott is particularly looking forward to visiting ATLAS - the largest volume particle detector ever constructed which sits in a cavern 100m below ground.
