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.

FASE 2021: Submitting a Paper


Abstract submission: : Wednesday, September 8th, 2021
Full paper submission: : Wednesday, September 15th, 2021
Review notification: Wednesday, October 6th, 2021th, 2021
Camera ready full papers due: Wednesday, October 20tth, 2021
Conference: Sunday-Tuesday, November 14th-16th, 2021


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'2021. Authors of accepted papers must register for the SMI conference and are expected to give an on-line Zoom presentation in a special scheduled on-line FASE session.

When and Where

SMI'FASE will be a part of Shape Modeling International conference (SMI 2021) and will take place from November 14th to 16th as an online event.
