Conference History

Conference History

In 1996 the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society organized the IEEE Workshop on Emerging Technologies in Instrumentation and Measurement to explore the theoretical insights and the practical use of innovative technologies for the area of measurement systems and related applications. Two main areas were considered: computational intelligence and virtual environments.

The workshop evolved, with different names, in each of the subsequent years by focusing on various aspects of these areas and becoming a symposium.

In 2003 the organizers realized that the topics and the communities interested in this workshop were diverging and therefore started two conferences, each focusing on one of the two areas mentioned above: the IEEE International Conference on Computational Intelligence for Measurement Systems and Applications (IEEE CIMSA) and the IEEE International Conference on Virtual Environments, Human-Computer Interfaces, and Measurement Systems (IEEE VECIMS). IEEE CIMSA was sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society and the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society, while IEEE VECIMS was sponsored only by the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society. The two meetings were held in parallel in the same location, to exploit synergies in local arrangement expenses and efforts, even though the communities started clearly to separating one from the other. These conferences constituted two successful series which will reach the tenth edition in 2012.

In the past few years, however, the organizers noticed a convergence of the two technological areas of these conferences. For this reasons, the Steering Committees of the two conferences unanimously voted to terminate the two series and merge the meetings in a new conference series to maximize the benefits for the communities: IEEE International Conference on Computational Intelligence and Virtual Environments for Measurement Systems and Applications (IEEE CIVEMSA).
