Approximately 150 attendees representing some 20 nations are expected to attend the annual business conference of the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA), which will take place on 13-14 May 2011 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

The conference programme consists of four different thematic sessions focused on machine vision in Benelux, business trends, machine vision markets and technology trends.

The two keynote speakers of the conference will both focus on 'future' from different angles. Professor Franz Josef Radermacher, Ulm University, will talk about 'Globalisation, sustainability, future – the challenge ahead', while Dr Pero Micic, FutureManagementGroup, focuses on future management as part of corporate strategy. The conference language is English.

The conference unites executives and experts of the machine vision community from around the world and offers ideal networking opportunities. This year a new networking tool will be introduced. After having identified matching company or participants' profiles the online-tool allows participants to arrange B2B-meetings well in advance.

As usual, the conference gives the attendees the opportunity to reinforce their network among industry peers. The starting point is a get-together on Thursday evening at the lounge of the Renaissance Amsterdam Hotel, located in the historic city centre. The conference dinner on Friday is held at the restaurant 'de Kas', a former greenhouse. On Saturday a Grachten Tour by boat offers new perspectives of Amsterdam and also concludes the conference.
