      The EURACHEM/CITAC Measurement Uncertainty and Traceability Working Group invites you to participate in the next EURACHEM workshop to be held in Lisbon, between the 6th and the 7th June 2011. The event will be jointly organised by EURACHEM Portugal and RELACRE, the Portuguese Association of Accredited Laboratories, representing EUROLAB. Discussion of recent developments in measurement uncertainty evaluation will take place in the frame of the proposed revision of the Eurachem/CITAC guide “Quantifying Uncertainty in Analytical Measurement”.

      The second edition of the EURACHEM/CITAC Guide for quantifying uncertainty in analytical measurements, published in 2000, is the most cited document in Metrology in Chemistry. The success of this document is based on the balance of the clarity and detail of technical discussions with the pragmatism of the proposed solutions for the evaluation of the measurement uncertainty.

      After a decade of developments supported on the principles presented and introduced by the EURACHEM/CITAC Guide, this document is being revised and updated to take account of new terminology and recent developments in measurement uncertainty evaluation.
The workshop includes

  • sessions dedicated to the presentation and discussion of the draft version of the third edition of the EURACHEM/CITAC Guide,
  • breakout sessions on the main changes in the Guide and
  • sessions dedicated to the presentation and discussion of original work from participants.

      The workshop will be an excellent opportunity to follow and present the most recent developments on Metrology in Chemistry, thus celebrating the International Year of Chemistry, IYC 2011 - Chemistry, our life, our future.

      The workshop will take place at the Science Museum of the University of Lisbon, and will be part of the list of events that will celebrate the Faculty of Science’s first centenary.
