The cost has been kept to an affordable level to encourage a large uptake of places.  It is £50 per delegate.

The conference is open to anyone with research interests in flow measurement across all disciplines and sectors, with themes that mirror the FMI R&D priorities:

  • Measurement & Meter Technologies
  • Enhanced Data Capture & Analysis
  • Flow Modelling & Fundamental Fluid Mechanics
  • Advanced Calibration Techniques/ Methodologies

The programme is shown below and can be seen here – FMI Conference Programme
