Call for papers – Eurographics Workshop on Graphics for Digital Fabrication 2016, Lisbon – deadline 20 February 2016

Call for Papers: Eurographics Workshop on Graphics for Digital Fabrication (GraDiFab 2016)
Lisbon, May 8, 2016. Co-located with the 37th annual conference of the European Association for Computer Graphics.
Workshop URL:
Submissions deadline: February 20, 2016

** Aims and scope **
Digital fabrication technologies comprise a combination of programmable digital tools, processes, materials and equipment which allow the creation of physical objects of complexities not achievable by traditional manufacturing processes. Computer graphics research is at the centre of these developments, as it provides the underlying technologies which allow creating, validating and processing the 3D shapes and textures to be fabricated. We invite paper submission from a wide range of researchers and experts investigating on the many aspects related to computer graphics and digital fabrication technologies. This research is expected to contribute towards the establishment of digital fabrication as a viable and effective option for the creation of the objects of the future.

Topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
– 3D acquisition for digital fabrication
– Algorithms and design tools for digital fabrication
– Analysis for digital fabrication
– Computational architecture
– Multi-material fabrication
– Optimisation algorithms for 3D printing
– Validation tools
– Interactive techniques with fabricated objects
– User applications

The intended audience involves experts from a wide range of areas such as computer graphics, additive manufacturing, computer aided design, material engineering, human computer interaction as well as end users from a wide range of applications including medicine, biology, engineering, arts and architecture. Hence, papers will need to present innovative computer graphics content but also refer to other areas or applications where they have been, or are going to be, tested and evaluated.

** Submission instructions **
Submissions reporting new work or new ideas in a relevant research area should be no longer than 10 pages and should follow the EG guidelines:

Authors are encouraged to submit printable 3D models along with their submissions to demonstrate the application of their techniques and methods. It is expected physical replicas will be exhibited during the workshop to disseminate the research to the wider Eurographics audience.

Submissions will be reviewed by the International Programme Committee with a minimum of three reviewers per paper. Successful submissions will be presented at the workshop. Furthermore, proceedings of the workshop will be published by EG Publishing in the EG Digital Library

** Important dates **
Paper submission: February 20th, 2016
Paper notification: March 15th, 2016
Camera-ready deadline: March 30th, 2016
Workshop: May 8th, 2016
