Acceptance process, conference proceedings, ISBN, DOIs

The submitted extended abstracts will be reviewed and evaluated for acceptance. Authors of accepted abstracts should submit full papers following the given guidelines.

The submitted papers will be published as conference proceedings with ISBN number, available in digital form (on USB flash drive and/or FTP download).
DOI (digital object identification) numbers will be assigned to the single published papers.
The abstracts and the papers will be available on-line at the website www.3dbody.tech/cap.

The works presented at the conference will be differentiated into three groups: accepted papers (upon review of the submitted extended abstracts), invited speaker presentations (with or without papers), technical presentations (mainly from exhibitors, eventually without papers).

All the submitted papers have to be presented personally by one of the authors.
Reduced registration fees are available for speakers/presenters: registration.
Please plan to attend the whole conference as changes in the program are possible until few days before the conference.

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 sectors/jounrals listed below.

Note: we are currectly seeking collaborations with additional journals in different sectors (antrhopometry, ergonomics, medicine, health, fitness/sport).
