The FabLearn Conferences bring together key influencers and thought-leaders from around the world in education, policy-making, academia, design, research, and maker communities to learn, present, and discuss digital fabrication in education, the maker culture, hands-on learning, and instructional tools.

The conference features:

  • World-renowned keynote speakers,
  • Panels of cutting-edge researchers, educators and students
  • Demonstrations of the latest technology, and
  • Immersive hands-on workshops.

The conference has two primary goals:

  • To establish the current “state of the field” by gathering information about the work conducted by those in the field, and
  • To disseminate information about best practices and tools, and connect researchers with practitioners, policy-makers, and pioneering educators.

Key Dates:

  • Submission deadline (Research and Symposia): April 23, 2023
  • Submission deadline (WIP, Workshops, all other categories): May 23, 2023
  • Notification of acceptance: July 2023
