Program Topics

Authors are invited to submit to Printing for Fabrication 2021. Technical papers/presentations are invited in, but not limited to, the following:

Challenge Areas

Print4Fab 2021 is organized around four Challenge Areas that address critical printing ecosystem issues. We are seeking innovative solutions to problems in these areas; examples given for each area are illustrative only and do not represent a complete list of acceptable topics.

Deposition Technology

  • Methods and physics of applying inks, fluids, or other materials
  • 2D, 3D, and 4D printing
  • Analog and digital printing technologies
     

Substrates and Inks

  • Demanding shapes and difficult surfaces 
  • Chemistry of inks and other fluids
  • Material interactions
     

System Integration

  • Process measurement and feedback/control technologies 
  • Variable data, color science, and modeling
  • Hybrid printing, AI, and robotics
     

Pre/Post Processing

  • Image processing
  • Pre-processing of substrates
  • Post-processing of printed materials 

Presented work may include, but is not limited to, these challenges within applications such as additive manufacturing, 3D printing, digital packaging, printed electronics, functional printing, textiles, decoration printing (ceramic tile, wallcovering, flooring), printing on non-flat objects, biological materials, life sciences, health care, security printing, environmental, recycling, energy saving, manufacturing processes, scientific imaging, and e-commerce fulfillment.

Special Sessions

In addition to the four Challenge Areas, we invite papers for three Special Sessions:

  • Experimental Printing – tactile printing, beyond CMYK, optical illusions, etc.
  • Printing Sustainability – zero waste, recyclability, carbon footprint, VOC’s
  • Impact of COVID-19 – effects on the printing ecosystem
(To submit a paper to ICAI 2021, please use the ICAI submission portal.)

PEER REVIEW PROCESS AND PUBLICATION

All submitted proposals are peer-reviewed to ensure that the program provides significant, timely, and authoritative information.

  • Papers presented at the conference should be complete in regard to advancing the state of knowledge around addressing critical printing ecosystem issues.
  • Authors have the choice of submitting their paper to an IS&T journal (JIST) or the conference committee for inclusion in the event. "Journal-first" publication allows authors a journal citation for their work (details below).
  • All papers presented at Printing for Fabrication 2021 are published Open Access in the conference proceedings and/or journal, indexed with various services, filed with the US Library of Congress, and made available as downloadable PDFs through the IS&T Digital Library. Authors may also post the authoritative version of accepted papers in repositories and on websites.
  • Authors are expected to adhere to the guidelines and ethics found in the IS&T Publication Policy.
  • Presenters are expected to pay the conference registration fee.
  • The conference language is English.

HOW TO SUBMIT

Prospective authors are encouraged to review all the details below, as well as the IS&T Publication Policy .

Authors may submit one of the following:

  1. Traditional peer-reviewed conference paper, published in the Printing for Fabrication proceedings and OPEN ACCESS in IS&T Digital Library
  2. Presentation-only extended abstract (reviewed for relevance), not published in the proceedings; not in IS&T Digital Library
  3. Journal-first paper, which appears in the Journal of Imaging Science and Technology (JIST) prior to the meeting start date, and as a reprint in the proceedings. The advantage of Journal-first is an Open Access journal citation.

JOURNAL-FIRST PAPER

Submit via: jist.msubmit.net
Submission Deadline: 10 May 2021
