About FASE

The Fabrication and Sculpting Event (FASE) presents original research at the intersection of theory and practice in shape modeling, fabrication, and sculpting. FASE focuses on the practical problems of generating shapes and specifically addresses the interplay of theory and practice. FASE invites practitioners who have inspiring ideas to contribute their work concerned with techniques to design, sculpt and fabricate shapes. The work with clear algorithmic or mathematical aspects along with practical applications such as digital heritage is particularly desired.

When and Where

SMI'FASE will be co-located with International Geometry Summit (IGS) 2019 and will take place from June 17th to 21st at Simon Fraser University, Vancouver Canada as part of Shape Modeling International conference (SMI 2019).

FASE 2019: Submitting a Paper


Abstract registration deadline: Monday, April 15th
Submisstion deadline: Monday, April 22nd
Acceptance notification: Monday, May 6th
Camera ready full papers due: Monday, Jun 3rd

All deadlines at 23:59 UTC/GMT


FASE solicits papers that pose new questions and motivate further research in designing, fabrication, and sculpting. Topics should be useful, for example, in the following areas:

  • Fabrication of digital models
  • Advanced manufacturing techniques such as additive manufacturing, laser cutting or CNC milling
  • Interactive or procedural design of manufacturable shapes
  • Interconnections of complex modeling and fabrication processes
  • Visually stimulating fabrication techniques or printed structures

Paper Format

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:

  • Full Papers describing methods in detail with a limit of 16 pages.
  • Short Papers describing methods in less detail with a limit of 8 pages.
  • Posters describing methods in mush less detail with a limit of 4 pages.


All FASE paper submissions (including full and short papers) will be handled via the EasyChair System, following a one-stage peer review cycle. Accepted FASE papers will be published in a special issue of the Hyperseeing magazine. FASE paper presentations will be 15 minutes in length. They will be presented in a specific FASE session at the SMI'2019. Accepted papers and posters must be presented in person by registering the SMI conference.
