Call For Submissions: 3rd Annual Symposium on Computational Fabrication
Conference Date: June 17-19th
Location: MIT building E14 hosted by the Center for Bits and Atoms, 
Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA

The Symposium on Computational Fabrication (SCF), sponsored by the ACM, 
provides a holistic home for new research and developments in the 
interdisciplinary areas of digital manufacturing and computational 
design. The theme this year is "The Next 50 Years"; we will highlight 
advances in the field that will have a lasting impact, and discuss the 
broader implications. We are seeking high-quality research submissions 
in all areas relating to computational fabrication including (but not 
limited to): computer science, engineering, materials science, 
architecture, human-computer interaction, and robotics. The goal of SCF 
is to advance the state-of-the-art in computational fabrication via the 
exchange of new research, discussions, and collaborations and to become 
the preeminent venue for such activities in the burgeoning field of 
Computational Design and Fabrication.

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

In order to attract both mature research results as well as cutting-edge 
developments, the SCF will be accepting Full Papers, Extended Abstracts, 
Posters, and Demos. Please see below for the submission requirements and 
dates.

Full Papers
Deadline: April 12th 2018
Description: 10 page limit. If accepted, authors will be awarded a 15 
minute presentation platform to present the work. These papers are 
archived as part of the ACM Digital Library

Extended Abstracts on Late-breaking Results
Deadline: May 25th 2018
Description: 3-5 pages. 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. We welcome discussions & presentations on recently 
submitted or published work, recent results, or any other topic of 
interest to the community.

Posters and Demos
Deadline: May 25th 2018
Description: 2 page abstract along with the poster layout. These 
poster/demo abstracts are NOT archived as part of the ACM Digital 
Library, in an effort to promote new/breaking results.
