The first ASTM D13.66-3D BodyScanning Task Group meeting will be held 12-14 September 2002, at the College of Textiles at North Carolina State University.          
                                                                     
The goal of this meeting will be to discuss and develop ways to integrate 3D body scanning technologies for the benefit of the textile and apparel industries and e-commerce.
                               
The work of the task group meeting will be divided into three major areas of interest, including semantics and syntax related to 3D scanning systems; integration of 3D data into apparel CAD systems; and integration of 3D data with virtual design, modelling and animation systems.                                    
                                                                     
Technology developers, industry practitioners and executives, academics, and consultants are expected to attend.
