Registration opens for three-day user event; call for papers and sponsors issued on web site

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., November 12, 2008- Geomagic has opened registration and issued a call for papers and sponsors for Convergence 2009, the Geomagic user conference that explores new applications, best practices and innovation in digital shape sampling and processing (DSSP). Convergence 2009 will be held February 24-26 in Savannah, Georgia, USA.

The third annual conference will feature speakers from around the world presenting papers on how Geomagic technology can be used to enable DSSP in a wide range of applications. Among last year's highlights were presentations on virtual manufacturing at Ford that saves millions of dollars; new techniques that are revolutionizing treatment of cleft lips and palates in infants; and aircraft engine inspection at Pratt & Whitney that reduces the time it takes the company to define and analyze features from weeks to less than a day.

Complementing the conference will be an exhibition of the latest 3D scanning technologies, demonstrations of new and emerging Geomagic products, keynotes from leading industry figures, and social events that provide the opportunity to network and learn in an informal environment.

Three Days, Three Dimensions in Savannah

This year's conference - with the theme "Three Days, Three Dimensions" - takes place at the Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort and Spa, a four-diamond facility. A 90-second ferry ride across the river delivers guests to downtown Savannah. Famous as the site of the best-selling book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and scenes from the movie Forrest Gump, Savannah combines a rich history with global sophistication, funky nightlife and fabulous food. Convergence 2009 will culminate in a golf tournament at the Westin Savannah Harbor's The Club course, named one of the four best places to play by Golf Digest.

Geomagic users interested in speaking at Convergence 2009 should submit an abstract and biography by December 12. Speakers receive complimentary full registration to Convergence 2009.
