ACM/Eurographics Symposium on Computer Animation 2018

The ACM SIGGRAPH / Eurographics Symposium on Computer Animation (SCA) is the premier forum for innovations in the software and technology of computer animation.

The 17th annual Symposium on Computer Animation (SCA) will be held in Paris in France, July 11-13, and the symposium will be hosted at the “CNRS Délégation Paris Michel-Ange” (grand auditorium Marie-Curie), in the 16e arrondissement of Paris.

SCA is the premier forum for innovations in the software and technology of computer animation. It unites researchers and practitioners working on all aspects of time-based phenomena. Our focused, intimate gathering, with single track program and emphasis on community interaction, makes SCA the best venue to exchange research results, get inspired, and set up collaborations. We hope to see you in Paris!

Specificities of 2018 event

  • CGF Journal Paper Publication

    All accepted papers at SCA 2018 will be published as a Computer Graphics Forum (CGF) Journal Paper.

  • Collocation with SGP conference

  • The Symposium on Geometry Processing (SGP) will take place the same week (July 7-11) also in the center of Paris. This is a unique opportunity of enjoying the two events and meeting both Geometry and Animation community at the same place and time, while enjoying a full week in Paris !

    In addition, some events are opened to participants of both conferences:

    • SCA participants can attend SGP keynotes without extra fees. (and conversely, SGP participants are welcome to SCA keynotes)
    • SCA welcome reception will be shared with SGP closing reception and take place on July 11th evening at the CNRS délégation Paris Michel-Ange.
  • Enjoy the French National Day on July the 14th

  • The French National Day (celebration of the French Revolution) will occurs on the 14th of July. Do not miss the opportunity to stay two more days in Paris after SCA to enjoy the celebration and parades in Paris.
