MEASUREMENT 2015 - the 10th International Conference on Measurement Science was held from 25 to 28 May, 2015 in the Smolenice Castle, Slovakia. The main topics of the conference covered three areas: Theoretical problems of measurement, measurement of physical quantities and measurement in biology and medicine. See conference web page http://www.measurement.sk/M2015/ for detailed information.

The jubilee 10th international conference on measurement - MEASUREMENT 2015 was held from 25 to 28 May, 2015 in the Congress Center of the Slovak Academy of Sciences in the Smolenice castle. The main organizer of the event was the Institute of Measurement Science SAS and the co-organizer was the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava. Technical sponsors were The Czechoslovak Section of IEEE, Slovak technical committees TC7 and TC13 of IMEKO, Slovak metrological Society, Slovak national Committee U.R.S.I. and Slovak Society of Biomedical Engineering and Medical Informatics.

The conference that takes place regularly since 1997 in two-year periods was traditionally devoted to three topical blocks: theoretical problems of measurement, measurement in biomedicine and measurement of physical quantities. The subjects of individual contributions were related to several areas of measurement science from the definitions of the main units, through solutions of theoretical metrological problems and estimation of measurement uncertainties, design of new measuring methods for biology and medicine, mechanical, electrical and power engineering, up to solutions of specific measuring systems for applications in the mentioned areas.

Three invited overview lectures opened some oral sessions: the paper of professor Frollo from Slovakia was devoted to current issues in magnetic resonance imaging in material research, professor Bosse from Germany explained the new definitions of some SI units that are being prepared and professor Liebert from Poland talked about the application of infrared spectroscopy in the research of brain perfusion. Other conference contributions were selected in a reviewing process where each paper was evaluated by two or three reviewers. Selected 42 oral presentations were scheduled in 10 sessions; another 33 contributions were presented in two poster sessions.

Also during this conference the „Young Investigator Award" competition of young scientists took place to select the best oral and poster presentation. The aim of the competition was to promote active participation and publications of young researchers in measurement science. This time the share of young conference participants was quite high and 18 contributions participated in the competition. They were evaluated by seven members of an international jury. The winners were also offered to publish their contributions in extended form in the impacted web-based open access journal Measurement Science Review published by de Gruyter. The winner in category of oral presentations was A. Krafčík from Slovakia; the best poster was presented by M. Bujalski from Poland.

Printed conference proceedings were presented to all participants during the conference. Selected extended papers will be published after successful review in the journal Measurement Science Review. Electronic version of the proceedings is available on the conference web page, where you can find also the photos taken during the event.

Besides the scientific program, the conference enabled the participants to make the acquaintance of some fragments of the Slovak history, nature and culture during the excursion to the Red Stone castle or during the walks in the Smolenice surroundings. The social program of the conference was enriched by the productions of the music group Ragan trio and the folk music ensemble Wimmer brothers.

The pleasurable surroundings in the Smolenice castle created a good working atmosphere for 78 registered participants and more than 20 guests from 12 countries and contributed to birth of new working contacts and collaborations.
