October 31 - Conference successfully closed

The 6th International Conference and Exhibition on 3D Body Scanning Technologies was successfully closed in Lugano on the evening of 28th October 2015.

221 participants from 35 different countries attended/visited the two days conference and exhibition in Lugano, Switzerland. All the continents were represented.

The conference started with an opening session with the presentations and announcements of world and international premieres from 9 manufacturers.
The very dense program included 14 technical sessions, with about 60 technical and scientific presentations. The topics discussed regarded: medical scanning systems, medical applications, body scanning for apparel, body scanning systems, applications in health & sport, digital anthropometry, rgb-d sensors & low cost systems, scanning methods & technologies, anthropometric studies & surveys, body modeling & avatars, and others.

The conference was accompanied by an exhibition where 15 manufactures were presenting and demonstrating their body scanning systems and/or software solutions. The major technologies were represented: laser scanning, white-light scanning, active photogrammetry, depth sensor based scanning, application software. The application sectors were also various, from apparel to medicine, from entertainment to anthropometry and others.

Nine manufacturers have chosen this event to announce/launch/present/demonstrate for the first time worldwide publically twelve new developments, new products, new solutions, new results.

The topics discussed regarded: medical scanning systems, medical applications, full body scanning, scanning systems & technologies, body scanning for apparel, digital anthropometry, size surveys, 3D printing, depth camera based scanning and others.

The conference was accompanied by an exhibition where 14 manufactures were presenting and demonstrating their body scanning systems and/or software solutions. The major technologies were represented: laser scanning, white-light scanning, active photogrammetry, depth sensor based scanning, application software. The application sectors were also various, from apparel to medicine, from entertainment to anthropometry and others.

Eight manufacturers have chosen this event to announce/launch/present/demonstrate for the first time worldwide publically twelve new developments, new products, new solutions, new results.

The conference confirmed also this year to be the most important international event focused on 3D body scanning technologies.
