ACM SYMPOSIUM ON
COMPUTATIONAL FABRICATION

MIT building E14 hosted by the Center for Bits and Atoms, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA | June 17 - 19, 2018

This special meeting of the SCF, hosted by the Center for Bits & Atoms (CBA), focuses on the developments today that we predict will guide developments in this area for the next 50 years. This special meeting was inspired by the previous CBA Science of Digital Fabrication meeting. This year, SCF is will be held coincident with a special event honouring Fab Lab pioneer Mel King.

In order to provide a general framework for the diverse topics encompassed by SCF, we are organizing this year’s sessions around the following themes:

  • Conception: design inception, representation, discovery process, and refinement
  • Implementation: hardware and software tools and materials to realize designs
  • Application: what is the real-world relevance of realized designs
  • Implication: what are the broader social impacts of applied designs

Please visit last year's website: SCF 2017, for an overview of all previous keynote speakers and submissions.

Poster /Demos /ShortTalk
Submissions

We invite you to present your work at the SCF as a poster,demo or short presentation.

Demos
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.

Posters
Illustrate recent research on computational fabrication previously published in another venue or
cover late-breaking technical results and research.

Extended Abstracts
If accepted, authors will be awarded a 5 minute presentation platform to present the work. These abstracts are NOT archived as part of the ACM Digital Library, in an effort to promote new/breaking results.
