GraDiFab2017 - Eurographics Workshop on
Graphics for Digital Fabrication in the Arts and Culture
5th-6th July, 2017 at University College London, UK.
Co-located with the Eurographics Symposium on Geometry Processing
Workshop URL: www.gradifab.org
Abstract deadline: May 12th, 2017
Submissions deadline: May 19th, 2017
***Aims and scope***
Digital fabrication technologies comprise of a combination of
programmable tools, processes, materials and equipment. They allow
the creation of physical objects of complexities not achievable by
traditional manufacturing processes. Artists and other professionals
in the Arts and Culture sector are experimenting with innovative
technical solutions which can support their creative processes.
The research of the computer graphics community has the potential
to impact on these communities by offering skills, techniques,
tools and infrastructure.
In its second edition, the workshop aims to bring together communities
working on aspects related to computer graphics and digital fabrication
for Arts and Culture. The intended audience involves practitioners and
experts from a wide range of areas such as computer graphics, additive
manufacturing, computer aided design, materials, human computer
interaction as well as end users.
Topics include are (but are not limited to) the following:
- Artistic processes and cultural applications of digital fabrication
- 3D printing and fabrication – algorithms and applications
- Digital fabrication for museums and art galleries
- 3D acquisition – algorithms and applications
- Complex art shapes – processes, algorithms, examples
- Reproduction of complex materials
- Fabrication at different scales from nano to large scales
- Fabrication of flexible materials
- Digital fabrication using innovative materials and technologies
- User applications in arts and culture
We invite submissions of different types:
- Research papers: reporting relevant research. Page limit is 10.
- Project reports: discussing current projects or experiences from
practitioners in the area of arts and culture. Reports should
address creative processes and requirements for new technologies.
Page limit is 4.
- Posters: reporting related initiatives where digital fabrication is
being (or is intended to be) used and where the author will benefit
with interaction with the wider community. Two-page abstract for
Paper and reports submission via:
Poster submission via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
***Presentation & publication***
Submission will be reviewed by the Programme Chairs and the
International Programme Committee. Successful submissions will be
presented at the workshop. Accepted posters will be exhibited during
the workshop as an A1 poster.
All accepted research contributions will be published by the European
Association of Computer Graphics (Eurographics). They will also be
made available in the Eurographics Digital Library Archive.
