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 as printed book and in digital form (on USB flash drive and/or CD-rom).
DOI (digital object identification) numbers will be assigned to the single published papers.
The abstracts of all papers will be available on-line at the website www.3dbodyscanning.org/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).

A limited number of selected papers may be chosen for an additional academic volume. These papers will have to pass a peer review process by the scientific/technical committee before publication.

All the submitted papers have to be presented personally by one of the authors.
Reduced registration fees are available for presenting authors: registration.

How to cite

Here below you can find an example how to cite the papers published in the proceedings of the conference (based on the IEEE citation style and with DOI).
Note: DOI numbers will be assigned to all published papers.

Guidelines for oral presentations

It is required that at least one of the authors presents the paper personally at the conference.

Oral presentations

Oral presentation should be 18 minutes long. This will allow additional 4 minutes for questions and discussion. Additional time may be available depending on the session.

Please ensure you arrive before the start of the session in which you are presenting and introduce yourself to the chair of the session. Note: chairmen will be listed in the final program.

No specific template is defined for the presentations. Presenters can freely design and setup it according to his/her style.

Windows Laptops with MS Powerpoint will be available in the conference rooms. We suggest however the authors to bring and use their own laptop to avoid compatibility problems (e.g. different versions of Powerpoint, linked files, videos, etc.). Please bring backups of your presentation on USB flash drive or CD-rom.

Please note that electricity in Switzerland operates on 220-240 Volts AC 50HZ and that Swiss 3-poles electric plugs are different from European-style plugs. Please bring with you the necessary adapters.

Important note for Apple/MAC Laptops and/or Tablets: please bring the necessary adapters in order to connect your device with projectors featuring VGA plug.

For details and further inquiries, please contact the conference office.
