Dates: 9 September 2013
Location: Zurich, Switzerland
Deadline for submissions: 1 June 2013
In conjunction with the ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp 2013)
Recently, technologies for fabricating real-world objects and products that can be designed and built directly by the end-user have decreased in costs and are increasingly common. These technologies are expected to have a great impact on society. However, there is a great need to explore many novel research challenges and issues before the idea of personal fabrication becomes truly pervasive and applicable to the wider public. Our workshop is aimed at facilitating discussion and exploration of these challenges. We encourage submissions of research papers, work-in-progress papers with interesting preliminary results, and position papers. Attendance at the workshop is not limited, as anyone may register and attend. The long-term goal is to gather a community of researchers and establish this workshop as a leading forum for research dissemination in the area.
