EMVA Slates 2008 Conference for Berlin
The European Machine Vision Association's 6th Annual Business Conference will be held April 10-12 in Berlin, Germany. More than 150 participants from 19 nations attended last year's conference in Lyon, France.
Attendees include professionals, executives, experts and analysts, and there is plenty of time for networking between presentations. While the program is not firm as of press time, sessions should include machine vision in Germany, technology trends, business trends and machine vision markets. EMVA was founded in 2003 in Barcelona as an association of European machine vision companies and national machine vision associations.
"[Last year in Lyon] was my first visit to the annual EMVA Conference and I am pleased to have had such a great take-home value," said Dr. Olaf Munkelt, CEO, MVTec Software. "The talks were more than worthwhile to listen to and networking was just excellent."
EMVA's work includes providing market and statistical data and establishing recommendations about European standards. Two of those standards are EMVA 1288 and GenICam™. EMVA 1288 facilitates comparison of camera and image sensor specifications and assessment of their performance. GenICam is intended to provide a generic programming interface for all kinds of cameras. No matter what interface technology (GigE Vision, Camera Link, 1394 DCAM, USB, etc.) they are using or what features they are implementing, the application programming interface (API) should be always the same.
The conference venue is the Radisson SAS Hotel Berlin, located in the city center. Conference fees are €500 for EMVA members and €700 for non-members. For more information, visit EMVA.org.
