EMVA calls for speakers for academic-industry forum

Share this on social media:

The European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) has announced a call for papers for its Machine Vision Forum, to be held in Lyon, France from 5 to 6 September.

The forum aims to foster interaction between the machine vision industry and academic research. Its goal is to accelerate innovation by translating new research results faster into practice.

The focal topic of the 2019 forum is: ‘Photonics and machine vision: going deep into integration’. EMVA board member Professor Dr Bernd Jähne, Heidelberg Collaboratory for Image Processing (HCI), Heidelberg University, will chair the event.

The EMVA invites all interested parties to contribute research or innovation fitting the topic, and submit the extended abstracts of a contributed talk or poster by 24 May at the latest.

All submissions are reviewed by the forum's joint scientific and industrial advisory board. For the five best rated student contributions, the student speaker will receive a free ticket to the forum.

The forum will bring together researchers and developers from machine vision, computer vision, machine learning, applied optics and photonics.

The EMVA is also inviting participants to submit papers for its Young Professional award, to be presented at its business conference in May, and the Embedded Vision Europe conference, to be held in October.
