SCF 2021: Dates & Deadlines Announced!
April 8, 2021

We are excited to announce that the planning for SCF '21 is well underway! In light of the continuing uncertainty brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the committee has decided to offer SCF '21 as a fully virtual event on October 28-29, 2021.

The paper submission deadline is July 9, 2021. All accepted papers will be presented at this year's virtual conference, and offered the opportunity to present in person at SCF '22.

Although we regret that we will not be able to gather in person as we had originally envisioned, we are committed to the well-being of our community, and heartened by the strength of last year's virtual event. We look forward to creating an even better experience this Fall, and we hope to see you there!
