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 on-line 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 presenting authors: registration.
Please plan to attend the whole conference as changes in the program are possible until few days before the conference.

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).
