Preparations are already in progress to bring the conference back to
Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia
for M2VIP 2019.
December 3 - 5 2019,

with welcome buffet at 6 p.m. on Monday, December 2.


By then there should be regular international flights
into the Toowoomba Wellcamp international airport.

The 24th conference on
Mechatronics and machine Vision in Practice

will be held in Auckland, New Zealand
at Massey university.

21 - 23 November 2017

The 23rd conference on
Mechatronics and machine Vision in Practice
was held in Nanjing, China.

28th - 30th November, 2016


The 22nd conference was held in

Toowoomba, Queensland Australia

8 - 9 December, 2015

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

M2VIP 2015

Though the number of papers was rather few, this was a great advantage for discussion and interaction.
Because of the single stream, it became clear that techniques
could be transferred between such diverse disciplines as surgery and rock drilling.
The conference has been held in Toowoomba before, to the delight of the delegates. 
The University of Southern Queensland was the presentation venue,
with coffees and teas kindly presented by Meetings and Events. 
An included dinner took the form of an Aussie barbecue,
with shrimps and succulent beef, though kangaroo was not in great demand.
A musical jazz group ententertained us.
The venue had magnificent views from the edge of the Great Dividing Range,
while a bout of lawn bowls and a bush walk sharpened up the appetite.

Selected papers will appear in a further volume of the Springer series.

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 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 was held 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.
