The European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) executive committee elected Dr. Mats Gökstorp of Sick Inc. as its new president last month. He replaces Gabriele Jansen, who served as president for the past two terms and remains a member of the EMVA executive committee. Gökstorp, a member of the executive committee since the EMVA was founded in May 2003, will serve a three-year term. He is member of Sick's management board, responsible for the Advanced Industrial Sensors Div. which includes the Vision business unit. Before that, Gökstorp was general manager of Sick IVP. He earned his doctorate in machine vision from Linköping University in Sweden and his MS from Case Western Reserve University in Ohio.
