EMVA opens next member-exclusive Peer Group
Many Machine Vision companies were already suffering from severe cyber attacks, the most known example being Basler AG by the end of 2021. Among our clients alone, 3 companies were majorly hit within the last 24 months.

The European Machine Vision Association is inviting CEO's, CIO's and IT administrators of machine vision players to join the EMVA Peer Group on IT-Security: This member-only group provides a private platform to exchange best practices for common challenges.
On March 22nd, the EMVA is organizing the first online meeting on IT-Security hosted by EMVA Board Member Ronald Mueller.

Let's join forces to be better protected against the perfidious attempts of criminals and hostile governments. Registration runs via joining the LinkedIn Group.

Spring ’23 International Vision Standards Meeting
Experts of vision related standards from around the world will meet 17-20 April in Vienna, Austria, for their 2023 spring meeting supported by the global G3 group (A3, EMVA, JIIA, VDMA and CMVU).

Vision and image processing experts from around the world will discuss the further development of various vision related standards in the different working groups. Allways being one of the highlights, the meeting will include the traditional plugfest where engineers apply the standards connecting a wide range of products to test compatibility, functionality and technical performance.

In 2023 for the first time the EMVA1288 working group meeting will be held during the IVSM, by this surely supporting the exchange with the other standardisation professionals.

The meeting is offered as hybrid event and it is organised by the European Machine Vision Association – EMVA and counts on the Austrian Institute of Technology as main sponsor. Go to event ›
