Early-bird Registration Open for SPAR Europe and ELMF - 17/09/2013


SPAR Point Group, organiser of the SPAR Europe 3D Measurement & Imaging Conference and European LiDAR Mapping Forum (ELMF), has announced that early-bird registration is now open for the events which will take place together, from 11-13 November 2013, at the Passenger Terminal Amsterdam (PTA) in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Furthermore, the preliminary conference schedule has been posted and more than 40 speakers have been named to participate in the conference programme.

People are recommended to register early so they are assured a place, especially this year when two conferences are being combined, said Lisa Murray, event director. They will save as much as EUR100 by registering on or before 30 September. Registration is available online.

The 2013 programme contains extensive conference programming and networking opportunities, as well as ample exhibit hall hours during which attendees can peruse the newest hardware and software solutions. Additionally, the events feature live data capture demonstrations, mobile mapping vehicles, roundtable dinner discussions, a university pavilion, technical seminars and user group meetings. The various elements of the programme work together to ensure that the professionals who come to SPAR Europe/ELMF leave with the expert education, strategic connections and cutting-edge hardware and software solutions to reduce project costs, improve workflows, enhance safety, and produce higher quality deliverables, according to Ms Murray.


Already, more than 40 expert presenters are on the schedule, with 75 expected in all. Presentations cover New Technologies; Civil Infrastructure; Land & Natural Resource Management; Process, Power & Utilities; Metrology: Discrete Manufacturing & Short-Range Scanning; Building & Architecture; Digital Cultural Preservation; and Forensics & Security Planning. Presentations are designated according to level (beginner, intermediate and advanced), workflow stage (capture, process, deliver) and audience type (beginner, intermediate and advanced).


In 2013, SPAR Europe and ELMF are taking place together for the first time, following SPAR Point Group’s acquisition of ELMF and its sister event, the International LiDAR Mapping Forum. The events had taken place separately since launching in 2010. By holding the two European events together, the organisators are able to provide their customers with the full spectrum of data capture, processing and delivery education at one time, according to Ms Murray, who added that one registration fee provides access to both events. The Fiatech Europe & Middle East Meeting and the LFM User Meeting are taking place in conjunction with SPAR Europe/ELMF in 2013.
