The Foremost Business Meeting for Image Sensor Experts

Image Sensors Americas will bring together the business leaders in image sensor manufacturing with key end-users to discuss and define the future challenges and opportunities in this technology sector. IS events attract only the highest calibre of speakers and delegate, ensuring that networking session provide maximum value for all attendees.

Confirmed speakers include some of the leading minds in imaging science, see the full line up here.

This meeting is essential for you if you:

  • Are an imaging scientist, camera technologist, image sensor expert, ISP developer or otherwise involved in digital imaging
  • Manufacture cameras for mobile, professional, automotive, surveillance, military, medical, space, or machine vision applications
  • Supply mateirals, technology or consulting to the digital imaging marketplace

Image Sensors events differ from other technical meetings in that they attract the senior business managers in the supply chain, and content relates imaging innovation to the business challenges and supply chain impact of novel technologies. High level discussion, high calibre attendees, and a great networking opportunity.

Here's what our attendees think:

"What made this meeting quite special is the openness and the quality of the data shared. It also gathered all the key actors of the vision system ecosystem in the same room (silicone provider, lens manufacturer, system integrator and OEM). This provided a unique forum to discuss issues across the ecosystem and hopefully speed-up the resolution of common issues."

Alain Dunoyer, Safety by Design (SBD)


"I like this conference, it's a good mix of technical content with business-focussed presentations, and the audience always has a good spread across R&D and management. I am delighted to deliver the opening Keynote presentation, and I'm sure I'll be back at Image Sensors again in the future."

Dr Howard Rhodes, CTO, Omnivision
