Industrial Track

The Industrial Track is an excellent vehicle for companies to advertise and promote their innovative products and services, connect with other companies and researchers and engage in discussions about research and development initiatives. It is also a great platform for enabling the communication of researchers focusing on industry-oriented research with industry.

This event is held in parallel with a set of related conferences, namely VISIGRAPP, SENSORNETS and PHOTOPTICS, attracting researchers from many countries in all continents, creating opportunities for knowledge and technology sharing, and facilitating future collaboration networks involving industrial project partners and interested conference delegates.

The Industrial Track may include the following forms of participation:

  • Lease of a booth (2x2m with a table and chair) for distributing information or for demonstration purposes, which will be free of charge with the registration at the conference of at least one representative of the Company
  • Poster Display
  • Presentation/Demonstration of project results either orally or in other formats
  • Organization of a special session, workshop or a panel/round-table, focused on the company projects and topics of research
  • Tutorial
  • Company Presentation
