The 21st international conference on

Mechatronics and Machine Vision in Practice

will be held in

Manila, Philippines

December 2-4 2014

with a welcome buffet on December 1st. 


Call for Papers

The first stage is to send a one-page plain-text abstract as the contents of an email to, with subject line "M2VIP 2014, Abstract. 

It will be judged for relevance to the conference, novelty, evidence of application and especially for interest to the delegates.  The deadline will be at the end of June, to galvanise you into action!

Each abstract will be seen by three reviewers.  For papers that they recommend, full manuscripts will then 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 they will have shown interest in your topic.  You will receive a decision before the end of September, to give time to make travel arrangements in plenty of time.  You might also be asked to make any reasonable revisions that they suggest, sending the final version before the end of October.
There is a good chance that Springers will welcome a third volume of papers to publish the second is nearing completion.

The conference has been held in Manila before, to the delight of the delegates.  De la Salle University has a smart new building for us to use as the venue.

The 20th conference was held in Turkey

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.

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 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.
