National Conference of Standards Laboratories International

The vision of the National Conference of Standards Laboratories International (NCSLI) is to be the world's recognized source for measurement science expertise and information.

Its mission is to provide the best opportunities for the world's measurement science experts and practitioners:

  • to network and exchange information;
  • to promote measurement education and skill development; and
  • to develop means for organizations to resolve measurement challenges.
NCSLI organizes an annual conference attended by a large number of industries and other professionals that interface with metrology, particularly in (but not limited to) North America. The event is a useful opportunity to disseminate information about developments related to the International System of Units (SI), and in general to raise the profile of the Metre Convention and the work of the NMIs.
