Imaging and Machine Vision Europe would like to know how we can better serve your needs within the vision industry via the topics we cover in the magazine and online.
  
At the end of the survey, which should take you no more than 5-10 minutes to complete, there is an option to leave your contact details should we wish to follow up on your answers to get a better understanding.
 
Anything you say to us, either via the survey or subsequently over the phone, will be treated in the strictest confidence, and will not be published in the magazine. This is just our own research - but if we find something particularly interesting, we may come back to you for permission to write about it!
 
Any personal details will only be used to identify your answers, and will not be used for any other purpose or passed to any third party.
 
If you have any questions before participating, please do not hesitate to contact us.
