Abstract : The 1996 Articulated Total Body (ATB) Model Users' Group Conference was held at the Quality Inn South Mountain, Phoenix AZ on 8-9 February 1996. This Conference, sponsored by the Armstrong Laboratory (AL), US Department of the Air Force, and GESAC Inc, brought together over fifty users of the ATB model and its derivatives (CVS, Cal-3D, and DYNAMAN). The two day conference offered the opportunity to present and exchange the latest ATB modeling techniques and applications. Invited presentations, group discussions, and interactive exercises covered areas such as model features, harness belt modeling, vehicle and aircraft crashworthiness, design applications, and animation techniques. In addition, the newly-elected charter offices of the ATB Users' Group were introduced and committees formed to initiate group activities.
