SCF 2020

ACM Symposium on Computational Fabrication
November 5-6, 2020

Update: Virtual SCF & New Deadlines
Because of continuing uncertainties about whether we will be able to gather physically as a community, the organizing committee has decided to move SCF'20 to a fully virtual symposium. While this is not the SCF that everyone originally envisioned, we believe that it will be the best way to provide an inclusive and engaging experience to the entire community while maintaining their safety.

In that vein, we are excited to announce that ACM SCF will be held this fall on November 5-6, 2020. We plan to hold two days of symposium talks and online discussions. There will be no conference registration fee.

The deadline for paper submission is now August 10, 2020. All accepted papers will be presented at this year's virtual conference, and offered the opportunity to present in person at SCF'21 in Boston.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to one of the general or area chairs. We look forward to seeing you at SCF'20!
