Measurement uncertainty when measuring the impossible
Rome, October 9 – 10, 2008
The Rome Think Tank Event is the third in a series of four meetings organised in the framework of the MINET (Measuring the Impossible NETwork) project.
The Rome Think Tank will revolve around a crucial topic of measurement in general and especially for Measuring the Impossible (MtI), i.e., how to detect, determine and express uncertainty. Uncertainty is a common ground for physical, psychological and social measurement and the expression of an increasing convergence between the so called hard and soft sciences, yet it is not often treated with the necessary awareness.
The Think Tank Event will be an occasion for dialogue and interdisciplinary scientific communication between, the metrological community which has championed the issue of uncertainty for years, and, scientists engaged in measuring the impossible in the various application fields. Such a dialogue will take place through discussions in plenum, working groups, and an educational lecture by a scholar in this field.
