The Conference on Precision Electromagnetic Measurements is the most important conference in the field of electrical metrology.
Held every two years, it brings together representatives from National Measurement Institutes, Universities and Industry to discuss state of the art measurement techniques and issues surrounding the measurement system.

The conference in 2016 was held in Ottowa, Canada.  A significant proportion of the program was dedicated to discussions around quantum standards and the new SI system and e-SI-Amp partners played a significant role.

Some of the material presented at the conference by e-SI-Amp partners is linked below.
