SCF 2020

ACM Symposium on Computational Fabrication
Fall 2020 Boston University

COVID-19 Response: SCF Postponed
We have been monitoring the impact of COVID-19 and its effect on the SCF community. To protect the safety and well-being of our community and to ensure that SCF, when it does convene, is able to reflect your full work and capabilities, we have decided to postpone ACM SCF 2020 and the corresponding submission deadlines by at least two months.

We are currently coordinating with ACM to find new dates in the fall (likely November) to host the symposium, and we are exploring options for virtual participation for those of you for whom physical attendance may still not be possible.

New dates for the symposium and paper/poster deadlines will be forthcoming in the next few weeks.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. We look forward to seeing all of the new innovations this community has made when we gather this fall.
