3DBODY.TECH Conference & Expo

The Premier Multidisciplinary International COnference and Exhibition on 3D Human Body Scanning and Processing Technologies.

3DBODY.TECH Conference and Expo provides a platform of eminent professionals, entrepreneurs, academicians and researchers across the globe to present, learns and discuss the latest in 3D human body scanning and processing technologies. The multidisciplinary character of 3DBODY.TECH makes it unique and not comparable to any other meeting related to 3D body technologies.

3DBODY.TECH 2019 - The 10th International Conference and Exhibition on 3D Body Scanning and Processing Technologies will take place on 22-23 October 2019, in Lugano, Switzerland. Website:

Journal of Engineered Fibers and Fabrics is a peer-reviewed, pure open access journal which aims to publish, provide visibility to, and widen research on the application of engineering methods for the design of fibrous structures (textiles, clothing, composites) and fiber based materials (paper, flexible membranes, shells, plates, 3D printed materials, foams). The journal covers all stages of the textile life cycle, from production to end of life, and includes the following aspects: chemistry, engineering and design, management, logistic recycling and teaching.

The journal accepts original research and review articles which present research in fundamental and applied research areas. All submitted manuscripts considered suitable for Journal of Engineered Fibers and Fabrics are subjected to a rigorous peer review process in order to ensure that all published articles are of the highest quality.
Topics covered in the scope of Journal of Engineered Fibers and Fabrics include, but are not limited to, the following;
Fiber chemistry, finishing and ecology
- The chemistry and production of man-made fibers and fibrous materials
- Production, processing and ecology of natural fibers
- Processes such as finishing, dyeing and printing
- Shape memory materials
