Once again we would like to welcome you to the annual conference on
Mechatronics and Machine Vision. This is the 13th in the series and we
hope that it will be as
successful and enjoyable as the previous ones. This conference
has returned to its origins in Toowoomba, where previous conferences
were held in 1994 and 1997.
The papers presented at
this conference have survived a rigorous refereeing process, first as
extended abstracts and then again as full manuscripts. They have
been given a final polish in the light of the second round of the
process and a number will be revised yet again for inclusion in a book
be published by Springer Verlag. Grateful thanks are owed to the
international team of reviewers for their diligence in assessing the
We have papers from many countries around the world, including Mexico,
Spain, the United Kingdom, Singapore, Japan and Hong Kong. Of course, many of our ‘old friends’ from previous
conferences will be
here and we extend a warm welcome to them too.
As in previous conferences, the title belies a wide variety of
areas of applications and techniques and so it has been the usual hard
struggle to get the papers into some sort of order so that meaningful
session titles can be attempted. If you find a paper out of place, then
please try and
suggest where it might have gone!!
With four evenings of social events, there should be plentiful
opportunities to meet old friends, make new acquaintances and maybe
plot out some international collaborative projects. Future plans
include Xiamen in China for 2007 and Italy for 2008.
With all very best wishes,
