The conference was was organized by the Institute of Measurement Science SAS in Bratislava in cooperation with partners from Slovakia, Czech Republic, Poland and Austria. For more information on the conference visit the conference web page http://www.measurement.sk/M2013.

In the conference that is organized since 1997 participated 98 registered participants from 14 countries of Europe and Asia. During the opening ceremony vicepresident of the Slovak Academy of Sciences Dr. Juraj Lapin welcomed the conference participants.

The conference traditionally was devoted to three main topics: theoretical problems of measurement, measurement of physical quantities and measurement in biology and medicine. Three invited lectures opened the scientific sessions. The first one, presented by Dr. Kessel from PTB Braunschweig (Germany), was about uncertainty evaluation for quality tracking in natural gas grids. The second one, presented by prof. Kozmann from University of Panonia in Veszprém (Hungary) was devoted to the new possibilities and constraints in bioelectrical imaging. The third one, prpeared by prof. Trattnig (Austria) but finally presented by his close coworker Dr. Szomolanyi documented the new possibilities of the MR imaging using the 7 Tesla tomograph in Vienna. In 10 sessions another 46 oral presentations were given and 38 contributions were presented as posters during two poster sessions.

Also this time a Young Investigator Award competition was organized for young specialists in measurement science to appreciate and support their outstanding works. From 18 submitted works, as the best poster and oral presentations the contributions of Jakub Schlenker (Czech Republic) and Dr. L. Valkovic (Slovakia) were selected. Authors were also invited to submit full papers for publication in the Measurement Science Review journal.
