Call for Participation: SCF 2018 in Cambridge, Massachusetts

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.
