Special Issue Information
Recent years have witnessed rapid advancements in body scanning technologies, which cover a pipeline from imaging, modeling, and processing to analysis and visualization. Along this pipeline, there has been exciting research progress in active and passive scanning technologies for the human body, leveraging imaging sensors at a lower cost but with a higher resolution, speed, and accuracy. The advanced capability of capturing the human body in 3D and 4D has led to a wide range of applications, including anthropometry, ergonomics, apparel, health, sports, entertainment, and communications.
The recent research advancement in artificial intelligence (AI) has permeated through each step of the body scanning pipeline. In particular, machine learning and deep learning have contributed to automating the scanning and processing steps, e.g., registration, landmark localization, and body measurement. This has led to an easier adoption of body scanning technologies and consequently new insights into the human body shape for innovative applications.
The Journal of Imaging invites you to submit to a Special Issue on “Advances in Body Scanning”. The aim of this Special Issue is to solicit research, experimental and review papers on acquisition and formation, processing and analysis, understanding and visualization, as well as emerging domains and applications. We request contributions representing body scanning and the benefit of AI to the pipeline.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Imaging is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
