ACM Symposium on Computational Fabrication
June 16-18, 2019Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh


The 4th annual ACM Symposium on Computational Fabrication brings together experts from academia and industry who develop and use computational tools for the creation of physical things. The meeting exists to provide a venue for participants to discuss cutting-edge results and build cross-domain collaborations and connections.

Attendees and presenters come from backgrounds including architecture, computer science, mechanical engineering, human-computer interaction, biology, materials science, robotics, and applied math.

Previous years: 2018, 2017, 2016.

Call for Submissions

Technical Papers

Submission Deadline: April 19, 2019 (23:59 GMT)
Notification: April 26, 2019
Camera Ready: May 6, 2019
Submission Web Page: EasyChair for SCF'19 (select "Technical Papers")

The Symposium on Computational Fabrication invites the submission of high-quality, previously unpublished, novel technical work in computational fabrication.

Papers may be up to twelve pages (including references) in ACM proceedings ("sigconf") format. Submissions should be anonymized for double-blind review.

Accepted papers will be given a 15 minute presentation slot at the conference and will be archived in the ACM Digital Library.

Posters, Demos, and Short Talks

Submission Deadline: June 3, 2019 (23:59 GMT)
Notification: June 7, 2019
Camera Ready: June 10, 2019
Submission Web Page: EasyChair for SCF'19 (select "Posters, Demos, and Short Talks")

SCF also welcomes posters, demos and short talks (3-5 minutes). They can be either an overview of previously published work or on-going research.

Authors should submit a one-page, non-anonymous abstract (in ACM proceedings ("sigconf") format) for jurying. If submitting a poster, submitting a draft poster image is also encouraged.

Submissions will be juried, and submitted materials will NOT be archived in the ACM Digital Library in order to allow the submission of early work without limiting future publication opportunities.


SCF features a wide range of invited keynotes along with technical paper presentations and short research overviews. Keynote speakers will be posted in this section as they are confirmed.
