We are excited to announce that the International 2024 Inaugural Conference of the Society for the Study of Measurement will be held in person at the University of California, Berkeley on August 5–6, 2024.  

The Conference of the Society for the Study of Measurement is an interdisciplinary conference that explores the philosophy and history of measurement. It aims to consolidate and develop the study of these topics, following previous conferences that predate the foundation of the Society in Bielefeld (2013), Cambridge (2015), Paris (2018) and Milan (2022). It will bring together philosophers, historians, sociologists, psychometricians, and metrologists to address questions related to measurement across disciplines ranging from the natural sciences to the human sciences.
