The main objective of the two-day event, which was organised by STEMMER IMAGING and the European Imaging Academy for the very first time, was to present the current state of the art and technological visions from different areas of imaging and machine vision. Most of the 400 participants attended the vision technology forum for the entire two days demonstrating the great success of this initiative.
Almost 90 presentations, held in five parallel sessions, generated highly positive feedback. The 30 speakers were asked for talks on technological background and developments, rather than for product-oriented presentations, all of whom complied.
The accompanying table top exhibition from almost 40 manufacturers was very well accepted especially during the breaks between the lectures. Here again, the exhibiting companies focused on the presentation of technologies rather than on showcasing product innovations. An entertaining evening programme on the end of first day rounded off this successful event. The next STEMMER IMAGING Vision Technology Forum in Germany is expected to be organised in November 2015. Other subsidiaries are planning similar events for the first half of 2014.
STEMMER IMAGING has been leading the machine vision market since 1987. It is Europe's largest technology provider in this field. In 1997 STEMMER IMAGING presented Common Vision Blox (CVB), a powerful programming library for fast and reliable development and implementation of vision solutions, which has been deployed successfully throughout the world in more than 40,000 imaging applications in various industries.
