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 online 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).

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 speakers/presenters: registration.
Note: we offer also the possibility to participate at 3DBODY.TECH 2020 in a remote mode, as virtual speaker/presenter.
Please plan to attend the whole conference as changes in the program are possible until few days before the conference.

Guidelines for online/virtual presentations

Virtual presentation should consist of a pre-recorded video presentation of maximal 18 minutes. This will allow additional 4 minutes for questions and live discussion on the online conference platform. Note: less or additional time may be available depending on the session.

Pre-recorded video presentations should be prepared as video files (MP4, AVI, MOV, MPEG) and sent by file sharing systems (e.g. WeTransfer, GoogleDrive) to the conference office. No specific template is defined for the virtual video presentations. Presenters can freely design and setup it according to his/her style. Preferably include also a video narration (e.g. presenter captured by a webcam) which will make the presentation more alive.

Note: MS PowerPoint allows to record video and/or audio narration running through a presentation. For instructions on recording a slide show with video and audio narration using MS PowerPoint and on turning a presentation into a video, please click the following links: record slide show with narration, turn presentation into video.

Please send your presentation video file, before 30 September 2020, by file sharing systems (e.g. WeTransfer, GoogleDrive) to the conference office at info@3dbody.tech.

Instructions for speakers and session chairs

Please download and read the detailed guide for speakers and session chairs:
3dbody2020_instructionsforspeakers.pdf

Speakers will receive in advance an invitation email with a link to join the scheduled live session.

Speakers and session chairs will join a scheduled Zoom meeting, which will be live streamed onto the online conference platform. Attendees will see the live session on the online conference platform (not on Zoom).

Please install Zoom in advance: zoom.us/download
Note: the Zoom Client application is required; a Zoom account is not required.

Please ensure you join the live session 10 minutes before the start of the technical session (even if your presentation is later).

Your pre-recorded presentation video will be played by the host (us). During the video playback, attendees will post questions on the online conference platform. After the video, the session chair will pose you a set of questions for you to answer live (if needed you will be able to share your screen).

Note: details about the 3DBODY.TECH 2020 online conference platform are available at the page online platform and as pdf file: 3dbody2020_overviewplatform.pdf.
