Next event: 3DBODY.TECH2017, Montréal, Québec, Canada, October 2017

November 21 - Conference successfully closed

The 4th International Conference and Exhibition on 3D Body Scanning Technologies was successfully closed on the evening of 20th November 2013.

203 participants from 25 different countries attended/visited the two days conference and exhibition in Long Beach CA, USA.

The conference started with an opening session with a keynote presentation of Prof. Kathleen Robinette from the Oklahoma State University (USA), regarding 3D body scanning, past and future.
The very dense program included 14 technical sessions, with about 70 technical and scientific presentations. The topics discussed regarded: medical scanning systems, medical applications, full body scanning, scanning systems & technologies, body scanning for apparel, digital anthropometry, size surveys, kinect scanning and others.

The conference was accompanied by an exhibition where 10 manufactures were presenting and demonstrating their body scanning systems. The major technologies were represented: laser scanning, white-light scanning, active and passive photogrammetry, depth sensor based scanning, application software. The application sectors were also various, from apparel to medicine, from entertainment to anthropometry and others.

Seven manufacturers have chosen this event to announce/launch/present/demonstrate for the first time worldwide publically 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.
