Technical Papers

The Symposium on Computational Fabrication invites the submission of high-quality, previously unpublished, novel technical work in computational fabrication. Accepted papers will be given an oral presentation slot at the conference and will be archived in the ACM Digital Library.

Submission Details
Submission Timeline All deadlines are at 11:59pm PDT on the listed date.
Submission Platform All submission materials must be submitted electronically to EasyChair:
Submission Length There is no paper length limit or requirement; however, reviewers will be instructed to consider the paper's contribution relative to its length. Previous SCF technical papers have been 5,000-10,000 words in length.
Anonymity Submissions should be anonymized for double-blind review. Authors must remove their names and affiliations throughout all submission materials (paper and any supplementary material). De-anonymized papers will be desk rejected.
Submission Format Follow the ACM SIGGRAPH Instructions for Authors.

If using LaTeX, use the Overleaf template or the acmart package with the parameters \documentclass[manuscript,anonymous,review]{acmart}.

If using Word, use this template.

In either case, the expected format is a single-column document with wide line spacing suitable for review. Please use "author year" citations, not numbered citations.


Demos are an exciting way to show current computational fabrication research at SCF -- whether through a poster, an interactive example session with a new tool, and/or any other format that fits your project best!

We invite the SCF community to submit work, including work-in-progress, to the curated and non-archival Demo track. Demoers will present their work in-person in Seattle during SCF! We strongly encourage students and junior researchers to present their work to the SCF community during the demo session.

Submission Details
Submission Timeline Demo submissions are due at 9:00 AM PDT on Monday September 19th.
Submission Platform All submission materials must be submitted electronically to EasyChair.
Submission Format Demo submissions should be max 2 pages long, should not be anonymized, and should use the ACM 2-column format from the ACM Overleaf template.

In your demo submission, include a section named "Demo Requirements" which describe the physical demo you would bring to SCF '22 Seattle/what conference attendees would experience and any requirements you have (e.g., table space, poster stand, electricity, lighting conditions).
Acceptance The demo track is juried. Although we aim to accept as many demos as possible, we do have a limited amount of space available for our *physical and in-person conference*! We will announce accepted demos by September 24th.
Presentation Format Demoers will present their work in-person in Seattle during SCF!

We expect that most Demoers will bring a Poster and some other form of demonstration (software demo, manufactured samples, etc.), but Demos can take on many different formats, so feel free to design the experience that exhibits your project best!

To help us ensure that we have the right accomodations for you, please make sure you describe your chosen presentation format and anything it requires in the "Demo Requirements" section of your submission.
