4th EMVA Conference Draws Record Number of Attendees

The 4th European Machine Vision Business Conference took place in the Finnish city of Tampere June 30 - July 1, 2006. The attendance of nearly 150 top-level machine vision executives and experts promoted networking opportunities and represented almost 50 percent more participants than last year’s conference. Four different conference tracks focused on machine vision in Finland, new technologies, business trends and machine vision markets.

At the General Assembly held on the second day of the conference, EMVA projects were presented such as the initial results of the second European Vision Technology Market Study, the EMVA 1288 and GenICam Standards, the EMVA marketing services and new activities in the area of EU research funding.

The EMVA General Assembly also unanimously reelected the Executive Committee for a second term of office. For the next three years it will continue to be composed of:

  • President Gabriele Jansen (ISRA VISION SYSTEMS, Germany)
  • Vice-President Mats Gökstorp (SICK IVP, Sweden)
  • Treasurer Toni Ventura-Traveset (Datapixel, Spain)
  • Don Braggins (UKIVA, United Kingdom)
  • Martin Wäny (AWAIBA, Portugal)

The conference provided ample opportunities for networking. A get-together at the Tampere Marina, an evening event featuring a boat cruise to Rosendahl as well as a guided tour of Tampere gave all attendees the opportunity to make valuable contacts. The EMVA Conference 2007 will be held in Lyon, France.
