Cambridge, MA | June 12 - 13, 2017
The Symposium on Computational Fabrication is an interdisciplinary venue that brings together leading experts from academia and industry in the area of computer graphics, geometry processing, mechanical engineering, materials science, architecture, human-computer interaction, robotics, and applied math. The goal is to learn about fundamental questions and issues related to computational aspects of fabrication, provide a platform for discussing ideas and initiating collaborations that will pioneer new approaches in this area, and provide a venue for disseminating research results.
Please visit last year's website: SCF 2016, for an overview of all previous keynote speakers and submissions.
SCF 2017 is co-located with the SIGCHI summer school on Computational Fabrication and Smart Matter (June 14-18).
If you are a PhD student and interested in attending, please apply through the summer school website.
Starting this year, we are accepting original technical contributions in the form of paper submission.
All papers undergo a rigorous review process by the SCF program committee.
Upon acceptance, papers will be presented at the symposium and archived in the ACM Digital Library.
We keep our review cycle tight and notify authors within less than 3 weeks of submission.
We have two paper submission deadlines:
Paper Deadline 1: January 31, 2017; Notification: Feb 17, 2017; Camera Ready: March 3, 2017.
Paper Deadline 2: March 24, 2017; Notification: April 10, 2017; Camera Ready: April 21, 2017.
Paper Deadline 2: April 10 (Mon), 2017; Notification: April 19 (Wed), 2017; Camera Ready: May 3, 2017.
Submitting to either one of the two deadlines is exactly equivalent, and there will be no differences in the review process.
Authors of papers that were not accepted to the program in the first review cycle are welcome
to submit significantly revised versions of their paper again to the second deadline.
After Acceptance: Special Issue of Computers and Graphics Journal
We are also very pleased to announce that authors of accepted research papers
will be invited to submit extended, significantly revised versions of their manuscripts (>30% new content)
for inclusion in the Special Issue of Computers and Graphics Journal on Computational Fabrication.
The C&G Journal is ranked as one of the top four venues in Computer Graphics,
and has developed a reputation for quality and speed.
We will contact authors about this opportunity after their papers are accepted.

We invite you to present your work at the SCF poster/demo session.
Working computational fabrication prototypes and tools,
software platforms utilizing computational fabrication techniques,
including both research and commercial systems,
as well as artwork and visual designs that relate to or utilize computational fabrication.
Illustrate recent research on computational fabrication previously published in another venue or
cover late-breaking technical results and research.
Deadline: April 24, 2017; Notification: May 1, 2017; Camera Ready: May 8, 2017.
To submit a poster or demo please write up 1 page (incl. references) in SIGGRAPH paper format. (LaTeX | Word).
Please include author names and affiliations in the write-up.
We strongly encourage authors to submit supplementary materials (e.g., the layouted poster, a video, or website describing the work).
Upon acceptance, poster and demo submissions will be made available as non-archival work in the ACM Digital Library.
