Call for Posters and Demos

The purpose of the Symposium on Computational Fabrication is to create an interdisciplinary venue that brings together leading experts from academia and industry in the area of computer graphics, geometry processing, mechanical engineering, material science, architecture, human-computer interaction, robotics, and applied math. The goal is to learn about fundamental questions and issues related to computational aspects of fabrication, provide a platform for discussing ideas and initiating collaborations that will pioneer new approaches in this area, and provide a venue for disseminating research results. We therefore invite you to present your work to this broad audience during the posters session. Specifically, we seek posters presenting:

  • Recent research on computational fabrication previously published in another venue. This is your chance to present your work to an interdisciplinary audience!
  • Late-breaking technical results and research, including, but not limited to, progress in computational algorithms, additive manufacturing system design, and innovative applications.

In addition to posters, we also welcome:

  • Demos of working computational fabrication prototypes and tools software platforms utilizing computational fabrication techniques, including both research and commercial systems.
  • Artwork and visual designs that relate to or utilize computational fabrication.
