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.

We believe attendees, speakers, exhibitors should be given maximal freedom to choose when and how to participate at 3DBODY.TECH 2020. We will accept requests for changes (upgrades, downgrades, virtual/onsite) until the latest possible date and without additional administrative fees. We will be also very flexible on proposals for presentations, speeches and on registrations of exhibitors.

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.

April 15, 2020 - SILVER exhibitor & sponsor

The IEEE Standards Association (USA) will participate at the conference's exhibition.
IEEE-SA standards.ieee.org

The IEEE Standards Association Industry Connections program brings together focused interest groups to address standards related considerations in emerging technology areas. The Industry Connections 3D Body Processing group brings together an ecosystem of players to co-develop an assessment of standards needs and to propose new standard(s) around enabling 3D body processing which includes the capture, processing, storage, sharing and (augmented) representation for "Of-the-body" and "On-the-body" technologies. This exploration includes identification and classification of types and uses cases for 3D body processing; identification of gaps in existing nascent standards and recommended practices as 3D body processing spreads beyond first adopters; identifying needs and develop proposals for new standards and best practices for 3D body processing and adjacent technologies (like 2D augmented reality); identifying guides and recommendations for consuming or using body measurements, to better understand the benefits and limitations of this type of data.

In addition to its participation at the 3DBODY.TECH Conference & Expo, the IEEE-SA Industry Connections 3D Body Processing (3DBP) will held its group's meetings on Tuesday 20th Oct. 2020 at the conference's venue. IEEE-SA
