The 22nd conference will be held in

Toowoomba, Queensland Australia

8 - 9 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 'abstract' stage was to save you the trouble of writing a full paper if your topic did not fit those of the conference.  Those that were submitted have all been reviewed and all were accepted for consideration of the full paper.

There have been rather few submissions, but a decision has been made to hold the conference here in Toowoomba all the same.  Unless we have several more papers the programme will be reduced to two days.

There is no closing date as such, but it can take four weeks for papers to be reviewed.  So unless you act quickly you might have little opportunity to buy early flight tickets if your paper is accepted.  If papers are selected for submission to Springers in the new book, there will be ample opportunity to revise them, so aim for speed rather than perfection!

Please send your full paper as an attachment to email to,
with subject line "M2VIP 2015, Toowoomba full paper."  You can find a template here

It will be judged for
  • relevance to the conference,
  • novelty,
  • evidence of application - and especially for
  • interest to the delegates.
If there is time, you might also be asked to make any reasonable revisions that the reviewers suggest.

Since the proceedings will initially be in electronic form, there is no stipulated page limit.  However you should bear in mind the amount of material that you can usefully present in half an hour, including question time.

Springers have expressed keen interest in publishing a fourth volume of selected papers the third was published in March this year.

The registration fee will be kept to a minimum and will cover little more than the excellent menu of meals.
Please send an email indicating your firm intention to register.  We can put you in touch with nearby accommodation.

The welcome buffet and the 'Barbecue Banquet' will be held at 10, Glencoe Court, in magnificent grounds looking out over the Lockyer Valley from the top of the Great Dividing Range.

The menu that has been suggested is:
Day 1.
Coffee break: Home baked cookies or Damper with Golden Syrup and butter.
Lunch: Chicken and Lemon Myrtle kebabs, Wraps with a variety of fresh fillings.
Tea: Assorted cakes and slices.

Day 2.
Fresh halved scones with jam and cream.
Lunch: Kangaroo and Mushroom Casserole with Rice, Wraps with a variety of fresh fillings.
Tea: Savoury Spinach and Ricotta Muffins, light seasonal fruit platter.
The barbecue will be held on Tuesday night, with grilled steaks of beef or kangaroo, roasted pumpkin and potatoes and an assortment of vegetables.  If you do not eat red meat, we can provide calamari.  There will be fresh fruit for dessert.

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 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 23rd conference will be held in 2016 in Nanjing, China.

Details will appear here shortly.

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.
