The IEEE Standards Association (USA) will participate at the conference's exhibition.
The IEEE Standards Association Industry Connections program brings together focused interest groups to address standards related considerations in emerging technology areas. The Industry Connections 3D Body Processing group brings together an ecosystem of players to co-develop an assessment of standards needs and to propose new standard(s) around enabling 3D body processing which includes the capture, processing, storage, sharing and (augmented) representation for "Of-the-body" and "On-the-body" technologies. This exploration includes identification and classification of types and uses cases for 3D body processing; identification of gaps in existing nascent standards and recommended practices as 3D body processing spreads beyond first adopters; identifying needs and develop proposals for new standards and best practices for 3D body processing and adjacent technologies (like 2D augmented reality); identifying guides and recommendations for consuming or using body measurements, to better understand the benefits and limitations of this type of data.
In addition to its participation at the 3DBODY.TECH Conference & Expo, the IEEE-SA Industry Connections 3D Body Processing (3DBP) will held its group's meetings on Monday 21st Oct. 2019 at the conference's venue.
March 26, 2019 - Post-conference peer-reviewed publications
Authors of excellent 3DBODY.TECH 2019 conference papers will be given the opportunity to submit extended versions of their articles to academic journals and to be published on post-conference volumes and/or special issues/collections. These papers will have to pass peer-review processes before publication.
This opportunity is available for the sector apparel/fashion in collaboration with the Journal of Engineered Fibers and Fabrics (JEFF).
Journal of Engineered Fibers and Fabrics (JEFF) is a peer-reviewed, pure open access journal which aims to facilitate the rapid and wide dissemination of research in the engineering of textiles, clothing and fiber based structures. Authors of selected 3DBODY.TECH 2019 conference papers will be given the opportunity to submit extended articles to a Special Collection on "3D Body Scanning in the Apparel Industry".
Note: we are currectly seeking collaborations with additional journals in other sectors (antrhopometry, ergonomics, medicine, health, fitness/sport).

October 18, 2018 - 3DBODY.TECH 2018 Conference & Expo successfully closed
3DBODY.TECH 2018 - The 9th International Conference and Exhibition on 3D Body Scanning and Processing Technologies was successfully closed in Lugano on the evening of 17th October 2018.
About 230 participants from 35 different countries attended/visited the two days conference and exhibition in Lugano, Switzerland.
The conference started with an opening session with the presentations and announcements of world and international premieres from manufacturers or 3D body scanning solutions.
The very dense program included 14 technical sessions, with over 70 technical and scientific presentations. The topics discussed regarded:
- 3D body scanning, processing and measurement for apparel,
- 3D & 4D face and body scanning in medicine, health & sport,
- 3D hand & foot scanning, anthropometry & scan data processing,
- 3D scanning systems, methods & technologies,
- full body scanning and ML/AI.
The conference was accompanied by an exhibition where 22 manufactures and solution providers were presenting and demonstrating their face, body & foot scanning systems and/or software solutions. The major technologies were represented: white-light scanning, laser scanning, active photogrammetry, passive photogrammetry, RGB-D sensing, application software, 3D printing solutions. The application sectors were also various: apparel, medicine, health, anthropometry, 3D printing, AR/VR and others.
The conference confirmed also this year to be the most important international event focused on 3D body scanning & processing technologies.
