Full Schedule, Presenters and Abstracts Available Online
16 September 2014 (Portland, Maine, USA) – The SPAR Europe 3D Measurement & Imaging Conference 2014 Programme has been posted online, event organizer SPAR Point Group announced. The 2014 SPAR Europe Programme contains full abstracts and presenter bios for the more than 30 presentations that comprise this year’s programme. The event will take place 8-10 December at the Passenger Terminal Amsterdam (PTA) in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
“The technology-agnostic programme focuses on business and technology considerations for surveyors, AEC/EPC professionals and asset owners implementing 3D solutions,” said Lisa Murray, Event Director. “Presentations address key issues in 3D data capture, processing and visualization that professionals need to keep pace in an ever-changing landscape of tools and operational needs.”
The 2014 SPAR Europe Advisory Board vetted all the abstracts to arrive at the varied, high-quality and topical programme. “From Unmanned Aerial Systems and low cost scanning devices to top of the line HDS scanners, the programme contains critical, actionable information for anyone involved in capturing and actualizing 3D data including BIM, Operations & Maintenance, Engineering Management and New Construction,” said Ms. Murray.
“The more than 30 presenters on the programme are true experts in their respective fields,” said Ms. Murray. “As changes in 3D markets are taking place daily, we look forward to the exchange of best practices and learning about new techniques among speakers, attendees and exhibitors.” She added that many of the solutions discussed during the programme will be on display in the exhibit hall, giving attendees the opportunity to further explore the many available options for data capture, processing and delivery.
“We are also very excited about the Keynotes our programme manager Linda McLaughlin has secured to date,” said Ms. Murray. Valentijn de Leeuw, Vice President, ARC Advisory Group presentation is entitled “State of the Market: 3D Measurement.” Peter van Blyenburgh, President, Unmanned Vehicle Systems (UVS) International keynote is “RPAS : The Current Status Regarding Civil Operations.”
Early-bird registration ends 31 October. “We encourage interested parties to register early to save as much as €200,” said Ms. Murray. Registration is available online here.
Free Event Features
In addition, SPAR Europe has a free registration option which includes the following:
• International Exhibition of solutions providers
• Live Data Capture Demonstrations
• Technical Workshops
• Mobile Mapping Vehicles
• Networking Events
“The one paid networking event (cost €68), A Night at the Nemo, is sure to be a fun-filled event at Amsterdam’s science museum, just a short walk from the PTA,” said Ms. Murray. At the cocktail and dinner buffet, guests will be able to mingle among the museum’s exhibits while making valuable connections with colleagues and market leaders.
“The various elements of SPAR Europe work together to ensure that the professionals who come to SPAR Europe 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,” said Ms. Murray.
Co-location with European LiDAR Mapping Forum
SPAR Europe will take place with European LiDAR Mapping Forum (ELMF), providing geospatial professionals access to the full spectrum of data capture, processing and delivery education at one time. ELMF is a technical conference & exhibition focused on data acquisition, fusion, processing & point clouds for airborne, terrestrial and underwater LiDAR used to support transport, urban modelling, coastal zone mapping, utility asset management and more.
One conference fee provides access to both conference programmes.
