3DBODY.TECH Challenges

Two different types of challenges will be hosted: on-site challenges and dataset-based challenges. Participation at challenges will be available to attendees and exhibitors of 3DBODY.TECH Conference & Expo.
On-site challenges will consist of 3D/4D body scanning and/or processing tasks to be conducted during the conference. Dataset-based challenges will involve processing of 3D/4Ddataset of various type to be conducted before the conference. Results of challenges will be presented during the conference, winners and awards to challenges will be announced at the closing session of 3DBODY.TECH 2020.
If you would like to propose a challenge and/or provide dataset, please contact the conference office at info@3dbody.tech.

More details and information about 3DBODY.TECH Challenges will be published later.

COVID-19

We understand there are concerns and questions around the novel corona virus (COVID-19) in relation to the 3DBODY.TECH Conference & Expo and we would like to reassure you that the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, and staff are our priority. We are closely monitoring the situation and following the guidance of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

3DBODY.TECH Conference & Expo will take place in Lugano Switzerland, on 21-22 October 2020. In order to cope with the particular situation caused by the novel corona virus, 3DBODY.TECH 2020 will be held as hybrid event, with real conference and exhibition taking place onsite in Lugano, and with added virtual content, online streaming and virtual online engagement. Attendees, speakers, exhibitors will be able to participate in person or online/remotely.

As the date draws closer, we will be working with the venue, our contractors and regulators to assess risks and to implement protocols for the safety and well-being of all participants at the 3DBODY.TECH Conference & Expo. Please continue to check our website 3dbody.tech for updates as they develop. We look forward to a safe and successful event in October.

In case of an inevitable postponement or cancellation of the 3DBODY.TECH Conference & Expo, the following two options will be given to registered attendees and confirmed exhibitors and sponsors:
(1) Transfer of the registration(s) and/or agreement(s) to the postponed or next year's event.
(2) Refund of all paid fees by bank transfer (less 6% credit card charge, for payments made by credit card).

Please don't hesitate to contact the conference office at info@3dbody.tech for details and further inquiries.

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.
