2013 International Conference for Vision Guided Robotics

The International Conference for Vision Guided Robotics (ICVGR) will be held on the campus of Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) in Atlanta, November 13-15, 2013. The Conference, which is held every two years, will be in Atlanta for the first time, having previously been held in Detroit, Michigan and Nashville, Tennessee.

“We’re very excited to hold this prestigious international event in Atlanta because it allows us to reach a wide range of industries in the South, including the growing number of automotive companies and suppliers based in the region,” said Jeff Burnstein, President of the Association for Advancing Automation (A3), primary sponsor of the conference.

Georgia Tech’s Robotics & Intelligent Machines Center is co-sponsoring the conference. “Vision guided robots are playing an increasingly significant role in manufacturing and non-manufacturing applications and the technology is rapidly evolving,” Burnstein said. “ICVGR will delve into the latest advances in 2D and 3D vision guidance, case studies of successful solutions and emerging application areas for vision guided robots.

A special exhibitor expo featuring products from leading vision and robotics vendors will be held on Wednesday, November 13 at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center. “This is a great opportunity to meet prospective vendors one-on-one, see demonstrations of their latest products, and get solid advice on how to handle your company’s challenges.” Burnstein said.

AIA, which is the world’s leading trade group for vision and imaging companies, will conduct its Certified Vision Professional – Basic Level training and certification program in conjunction with the ICVGR event on November 11 & 12. The CVP-Basic classes and exam will be offered. The CVP training is timed so that attendees can also register for ICVGR.

The International Conference for Vision Guided Robotics is co-sponsored by the Robotic Industries Association (RIA), AIA – Advancing Vision + Imaging, and the Georgia Tech’s Robotics & Intelligent Machines Center. The Association for Advancing Automation is the parent group for the Robotic Industries Association (RIA), AIA – Advancing Vision + Imaging, and the Motion Control Association (MCA). Together these groups represent more than 700 leading automation organizations from around the world, including manufacturers, component suppliers, system integrators, end user, research groups, educational institutions, and consulting firms.
