MARCH 5, 2008--The annual Business Conference of the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) will take place on April 11 and 12, 2008, in Berlin, Germany. The conference unites executives and experts of the machine-vision community from around the world and offers ideal networking opportunities. After steady growth in the preceding years, approximately 200 attendees representing some 20 nations are expected to come to Berlin. The conference language is English.
The conference program comprises four thematic sessions. The first one focuses on machine vision in Germany, presenting market data, as well as the influence of research on the development of the German machine-vision industry. The keynote speaker, professor Ferdinand Dudenhöffer, former automotive executive, university professor, and founder of C.A.R. (Center Automotive Research at Gelsenkirchen University of Applied Sciences), will give valuable insights into automotive trends of the future and implications for machine-vision suppliers.
The second session, technology trends, focuses on new processor technologies and their impact on machine vision and presents a technology of the future: organic electronics. The third session, business trends, addresses a more general topic: how workplace culture influences business success. Machine-vision markets, the last session, focuses on Israel and Italy as geographical markets, as well as vision technology in security and cars as new application areas.
The conference also gives attendees the opportunity to reinforce their network among industry peers. The starting point is a get-together on the evening before the conference at the SAS Radisson Hotel, where the world's biggest cylindrical aquarium will fuel conversations.
