Abstract : This meeting provided a forum for both invited and contributed papers on machine vision. Machine Vision is important in two general areas: inspection and assembly. In the area of inspection we have measurement problems with typical dimensions ranging from submicrometers to meters, and problems of defect detection and characterization. Assembly taks involve object sensing, recognition tracking, and mating of parts. Machine vision, like its human counterpart, comprises two distinct but interrelated components: data acquisition and data analysis. Most research in machine vision concentrates on one or the other of these components. This meeting brought together people working in these two areas to foster interactions between the sensor development and the algorithm development communities. Keywords: Reports; Abstracts.
