Fairs and events

Find out about our events here and learn more about the trade fairs at which we are represented.

The Fraunhofer IMS regularly presents and demonstrates its latest developments and their practical benefits as well as current research results at national and international trade fairs and exhibitions. The institute presents selected technologies and application examples from each business area at the trade fairs. We are regularly represented with our own booth at Sensor+Test, Laser World of Photonics or Vision, among others.


In addition, we participate in important technical and scientific conferences and regularly organize our own events and lectures. These include, for example, the CMOS Imaging Workshop or the High Temperature Electronics Workshop as well as various project workshops and conferences. Our events show in a compact and practical way which trends have potential, methods and strategies that have proven themselves in practice and concepts that will become relevant in the future.


At the trade fairs and events, we present ourselves as an excellent partner in research and development and close the gap between science and business. In addition, we strengthen our customer relationships, establish new contacts and constantly keep an eye on current trends in the field of microelectronics and future requirements.


We are also happy to inform you about our trade fairs and events with our newsletter.

Great Success of the 9th CMOS Imaging Workshop

May 7th and 8th, 2019

The 9th CMOS Imaging Workshop took place on May 7 and 8, 2019 at Fraunhofer IMS.
117 participants from 14 countries discussed the recent developments in hot imaging topics like LiDAR, Quantum Imaging, and Space applications.

The evening event in the Duisburg Landscape Park was particularly great and was a source of enthusiasm for many participants.

We thank all our participants, speakers, and sponsors for contributing to the success of the CMOS Imaging Workshop!

How the Fraunhofer IMS in Duisburg is getting applications for Industry 4.0 off the ground

Scientists and entrepreneurs showed how companies can benefit from application-oriented research at Fraunhofer in tandem presentations at the "IHK meets Fraunhofer" event at the Fraunhofer inHaus Center in Duisburg. The series of events, to which the chambers of industry and commerce of North Rhine-Westphalia issue annual invitations, is intended to pave the way for entrepreneurs to meet research partners. This year's meeting focused on the topic of "Sensors and Automation".

Which machine consumes how much electricity? Is that efficient? These are the questions addressed by a project of innogy SE and Fraunhofer IMS. Together, they have developed a retrofittable power flow analysis system that companies can use to analyze and optimize their energy management. The system makes it possible to break down total power consumption to individual devices and measure consumption at just one point. Visualization of the measured values enables optimization of a company's energy balance and is suitable for monitoring motors and devices.
