With year on year growth since its inception in 2017, the event is rapidly becoming a fixture in the industry’s calendar. While the event will follow a similar format to previous years, with a comprehensive program of technical seminars supported by an exhibition from leading companies in the industry, a new panel discussion session is being included for the first time.
UKIVA Chairman, Allan Anderson, explained: “This event has always been characterised by providing a platform where visitors can learn about many different facets of machine vision. In 2020 we plan to take this a stage further by opening the afternoon session with a discussion forum, where a panel of leading experts will answer questions about any aspect of machine vision.”
The previous events have attracted many who were keen to explore the latest developments in vision in addition to large numbers of people who wanted to learn more about the fundamentals of vision technology. The Conference will cover the key issues such as: Deep Learning & Embedded Vision, Vision & Robotics, 3D Vision, Optics & Illumination, Vision Innovation, Camera Technology and Systems & Applications, as well as Understanding Vision Technology.
Chris Valdes, UKIVA event organiser and business development manager for UKIVA and BARA (British Automation and Robotics Association), said: “Many visitors in previous years have commented on how much they like the format of this event. The Exhibition features a world-class cross section of manufacturers, vision component and system distributors and systems integrators. With the Conference theatres located around the exhibition there is plenty of opportunity both to see some of the latest vision products and to network with industry experts.”
The 2020 UKIVA Machine Vision Conference and Exhibition will take place on 14 May 2020 at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes, UK. Details of the 2020 Conference program as well as information about the panel discussion forum and the exhibition will be published on the Conference website as they are finalised.
