The European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) has announced a call for papers for its Young Professional award, as well as a call for presentations for its Embedded Vision Europe conference in October.

The Young Professional award honours the outstanding work of a student or young professional in the field of machine vision or computer vision.

The EMVA aims to support innovation in the machine vision industry, to contribute to dedicated vision technology education, and to provide a bridge between research and industry. Students and young scientists from European institutions are encouraged to apply their research results and findings in computer vision to the practical needs of the machine vision industry.

Last year’s award was presented to Doris Antensteiner, a researcher at the Austrian Institute of Technology, for work on light field and photometric stereo imaging.

The winner of the award will receive a conference pass and travel costs to the EMVA business conference 2019 in Copenhagen, plus €1,500 and free entry to the European Machine Vision Forum 2019, taking place from 4 to 6 September in Lyon, France.

The winner will be announced at the 17th EMVA business conference 2019, taking place 16 to 18 May in Copenhagen, Denmark, where they will have the opportunity to present their work.

Applications can be submitted by email to ypa@emva.org.

Embedded Vision Europe

The Embedded Vision Europe conference will take place from 24 to 25 October in Stuttgart, Germany. The conference will show the capability of embedded hardware and software platforms, and will present applications and markets for embedded vision.

All presentations will be held in English and will be 25 minutes long with an additional five minutes for Q&A. The submitted presentation proposals should fit into one of the Embedded Vision topics planned for the conference: novel processor concepts for edge devices; deep learning training data best practice; deep learning use cases for manufacturing; novel image acquisition concepts; extending the visible - 3D, hyperspectral, infrared; cloud concepts for automation; applications in autonomous navigation; applications in factory automation; applications in logistics and warehousing; and applications in agriculture.

Proposals for a presentation should be submitted via the following link: https://emva.org/EVE2019.
