The 6th China PT forum

“China PT Forum” is the most influential meeting in the field of proficiency testing (PT) in China. It has been successfully held for five times so far and has received wide acclaim and active participation. To promote communication among experts, scholars, and companies, strengthen international communication and cooperation, and enhance technological innovation capabilities in related fields of PT, "The 6th China Proficiency Testing Forum (6th PT)" will be held in Beijing on October 16-18, 2018, which is organized by the China National Accreditation Service for Conformity Assessment (CNAS) and undertaken by China Union of Proficiency Testing (CUPT).

In addition, two important forums will be held during the same period, one is“International Forum on Materials & Testing” organized by the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE), another is “ICASI’ 2018 & CCATM’ 2018 International Conference & Exhibition on ANALYSIS & TESTING of METALLURGICAL PROCESS & MATERIALS” co-organized by International Community of Analysis for Steel & Iron Industry(ICASI), Central Iron & Steel Research Institute Group (CISRI) & Analysis and Testing Branch of Chinese Society of Metals (CSM).

Focus on the theme of “Innovation & Standardization of materials and testing technology helps improve the quality”, the Joint Conference on Oct 16th will discuss on the latest development of materials research, testing technique, performance assessment and standardization. The organizing committee will invite well-known experts from the International Accreditation Forum (IAF), the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC), the Asia Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (APLAC), statistics experts from Europe and domestic experts in accreditation and proficiency testing to attend the forum and give special reports. And they will introduce the current development on the key field of laboratories and PT, discuss the new technologies and trends of PT under the guidance of the sustainable development strategy, and provide technology and management personnel in the field of PT and laboratory accreditation with an interactive platform for publishing academic ideas, communicating research results and management experience. Besides, the organizing committee of the joint conference will also invite more than ten academicians of CAE and experts from International Organization for Standardization (ISO), American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), Chinese Society for Testing & Materials (CSTM) to introduce the latest research results in the field of materials and the development of test technologies and test methods.

It sincerely welcomes contributions from all related industries and fields.
