Conference Schedule

Call for Abstracts 2024

The 3DMC 2024 organizing team now welcomes proposals for talks and posters.
This year,compared with last year, we aim to have a smaller number of longer talks but are also expecting a larger poster exhibition which will be on display during the whole event.

We welcome presentations and posters on portable and large-volume applications and technologies but we also like to see 3D presented from other perspectives. For example, we want to hear from users and developers of AI for 3D analysis, Motion Capture, X-Ray Computed Tomography, CMMs and 3D surface metrology.


Presentation Abstract Submission
June 30

Draft Presentations
September 9

Publication Option

Starting 2022, presenters of talks and posters have the option to submit a presentation related article for publication in a special issue of the open-access Metrology from our media partner MDPI.
Note that these submissions will be subject to MDPI's independent peer-review process.
Find out more about instructions for authors of journal articles.


Presenters of talks will be asked to provide a short biography which will be used by the session moderators to introduce them and their organizations to the delegates.
