The 22nd conference will be held in

Toowoomba, Queensland Australia

8 - 10 December, 2015

with welcome buffet at 6 p.m. on Monday, December 7

M2VIP 2015

The conference has been held in Toowoomba before, to the delight of the delegates. 
The University of Southern Queensland will be the presentation venue. 
An included dinner will take the form of an Aussie barbecue,
where you can try grilled kangaroo steaks as well as succulent beef,
in a venue with magnificent views from the edge of the Great Dividing Range.

Call for Papers

The first stage is to send a one-page plain-text proposal as the text contents of an email to,
with subject line  "M2VIP 2015, Abstract Toowoomba".  It should describe what you propose to submit rather than be a detailed synopsis.

It will be judged for
  •  relevance to the conference,
  • novelty,
  • evidence of application - and especially for
  • interest to the delegates. 
The deadline for abstracts will be mid July, to galvanise you into action! 
Each abstract will be seen by three reviewers, who will choose the papers that interest them.
For papers that they recommend, full manuscripts will be invited with an August deadline
These will get a full review by the same reviewers and the papers will be accepted or rejected according to their recommendations - but by that stage those referees will have shown interest in your topic. 
You will receive a decision before the end of September, so that you can make any travel arrangements in plenty of time. 
You might also be asked to make any reasonable revisions that they suggest, sending your final camera-ready version by early November.
Springers have expressed keen interest in publishing a fourth volume of selected papers the third was published in March this year.

Machine Vision and Mechatronics in Practice

Call for papers in document form

Scope of the conference series

'Mechatronics' has become accepted for what it is, the blending of mechanics,  electronics and computer control into an integrated design.  Degree courses in mechatronics are now widespread.
That does not mean that mechatronics has lost its

It continues to be the basis of an ever growing list of products and techniques of great technical and commercial value. Mechatronic design can result in products which are much simpler than their intricate and costly predecessors and can make commonplace the miracles of yesterday.

Machine-vision has emerged from the laboratory to find real applications in areas  which include vehicle guidance, robot control and agriculture. Low-cost cameras have been developed for multimedia applications - but with their ease of interfacing they offer a whole new field of low-cost vision-based control.

Like its predecessors, M2VIP 2014 (deferred) and 2015 will provide a forum for international experts and researchers to present and review advances in mechatronics and machine vision which have culminated in practical applications, or which promise practical implementation in the very near future.

Presentations are encouraged to include video material of experimental systems.

The 21st is being held now in Manila, Philippines, July 7th.

The eighteenth annual Conference on 
Mechatronics and Machine Vision in Practice
was held near Brisbane, December 6-7 2011

The last-minute change of venue meant that
several papers had to be shown as video presentations
but the demonstrations of equipment and techniques
by CSIRO Pullenvale made for an exciting conference.
