Invitation from Peter Mason, CIML President

Peter Mason

Dear Colleagues,

2015 is a very special year for the OIML because it is marked by two key events: the organization of the 50th CIML Meeting and the celebration of the 60th Anniversary of our Organization.

The CIML will hold its 50th meeting in Arcachon, France, from Tuesday 20 (morning) to Thursday 22 October 2015 (morning). It will be preceded by an OIML Seminar on Monday, 19 October 2015 (full day).

To mark the 60th Anniversary of the Organization a reception will be held on Thursday, 22 October at a special venue.

An RLMO Round Table will be organized on Monday, 19 October in the afternoon after the OIML Seminar.

We invite you to be ready to take the floor during the CIML meeting.

As you know, it is essential that the Committee has sufficient voting Members for a quorum. Therefore:

  • if you are personally unable to attend this meeting and would like to designate someone from your government or administration to represent you and vote on your behalf, please advise Mr. Stephen Patoray, BIML Director, of the name of that person;
  • if you anticipate that you or the person that you have designated to represent you may be absent during any of the meeting sessions, please give a proxy to another CIML Member when registering online.

Please note that if someone from your government or administration is representing you, this person may not receive proxies from other CIML Members.

The BIML has prepared this web site for the Arcachon meetings which provides detailed information. Registration for attendance will be online via this web site. The deadline for registering is 1 July 2015; if you are unable to register via the web site, please contact Mrs. Patricia Saint-Germain (Administrator, Members) at the BIML and alternative arrangements will be made.

Lastly, obtaining a visa may be a lengthy process so we urge you to make your application as soon as possible.

Looking forward to seeing you again in Arcachon,


Yours faithfully,


Peter Mason
CIML President
