MQDS 2023 Chairs

Abdérafi CHARKI

Dr. Abdérafi CHARKI is a professor at POLYTECH Angers (an engineering school at the University of Angers) where he teaches mechanical engineering, quality engineering, risk and environmental management and metrology. He worked in the automotive industry and at COFRAC (French Accreditation Committee) before joining POLYTECH Angers in 2004. His research experiences include reliability, quality engineering, uncertainty evaluation, lifetime and life-cycle assessment of products and systems. He is also quality and metrology assessor for COFRAC. He published more than 100 papers and supervised 11 PhD students. He has led and co-led several research projects funded by EU, the French National Research Agengy and industry. He founded the African Committee of Metrology and the International Journal of Metrology and Quality Engineering.

Message of Dr. Abdérafi CHARKI

The International Congress on Measurement, Quality and Data Science (MQDS) is a unique and innovative multidisciplinary event.

MQDS 2023 is a congress that brings together scientists and industrialists interested in topical issues that are extremely important for our future and our planet. We must produce and innovate differently to preserve our environment. MQDS 2023 allows for the exchange of information on scientific fields that are essential for sustainable development and for the industry of the future.

The keys to our success lie in controlling the risks associated with our eco-design, co-development and production methods, taking into account technological developments and climate change.

How can we ensure the quality, reliability, safety and recyclability of products and systems throughout their life cycles, while respecting appropriate specifications that are in line with the environment? What data are we basing on? Measured and/or simulated data? Are the data reliable? How is it measured? Can Artificial Intelligence (without regulation and control) answer all these fundamental questions correctly? If not, what should be done? I am convinced that the MQDS congress will provide interesting answers to these questions.

MQDS 2023 is organized in a very beautiful French region where life is good. France has always been a pioneer in many aspects of culture, science and technology, and is recognized for its cultural heritage and the quality of its products. France has unique values and is an admirable land of hospitality. Bordeaux is one of the cities that represent the culture and history of France. Enjoy MQDS 2023 and Bordeaux!

QingPing YANG

Dr. QingPing Yang is currently a Reader at Brunel University London (BUL), leading Brunel Quality Engineering and Smart Technology (QUEST) Research Group, and Robotics and Automation Research Group.  He was educated in Instrumentation and Measurement Technology at Chengdu Aeronautical Polytechnic and in Robot Control and Intelligent Control (MSc Program) at Northwestern Polytechnical University.  He worked for an Aircraft Structure Research Institute (AVIC, Xi’an) for four years before joining the Brunel Centre for Manufacturing Metrology (BCMM) in late 1988 as a visiting scholar.  In 1989, he was awarded an ORS Award and a PhD Studentship from British Technology Group to develop a patented smart 3D high precision probe system for CMMs, and received his PhD degree in October 1992. His research experiences include sensors, dimensional metrology, quality engineering, robotics, smart systems and AI.   Over the last three decades, he has developed a unique and coherent research field broadly integrating metrology, quality engineering and smart technologies (including AI and robotics), published more than 110 papers and supervised (as the first supervisor) 27 PhD students in these areas.  He has led a number of research projects funded by EU, UK government and industry with a total funding of about £2.5 million as PI. Dr Yang has received numerous prizes and awards for outstanding academic and work performance in the past. He has been a member of IEEE and IET.

Message of Dr. QingPing WANG

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is our great pleasure to welcome you to the International Congress on Measurement, Quality, and Data Science (MQDS 2023), to be held in Bordeaux. This Congress will bring together leading scholars, researchers, and industry experts from around the world to discuss and share their latest insights and innovations in the field of measurement, quality, and data science. It offers a great opportunity for participants to engage in insightful discussions, exchange ideas, and establish meaningful connections with their peers from academia, industry, and government agencies. We are confident that this Congress will inspire new collaborations, and contribute to the advancement of knowledge in the field of measurement, quality, and data science.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the Organizing Committee and the CAFMET for their hard work and dedication in putting together this Congress. We would also like to extend our appreciation to the Scientific Committee for their invaluable contributions in developing the Congress Program and ensuring its academic rigor.
