Call for Participation
ACM SIGGRAPH / Eurographics Symposium on Computer Animation 2018
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 Micehl-Ange in the center 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!
We invite submission of original, high-quality papers on computer animation, broadly defined as computation dealing with time-varying phenomena. Each submission will be refereed on the basis of technical quality, novelty, significance, and clarity.
For the first time in the history of SCA, all accepted papers will be published in the journal Computer Graphics Forum. In addition, we will have best paper awards as usual.
We invite work on a broad range of topics, including:
- 2D, 3D, and N-D animation systems
- autonomous characters
- clothing animation and simulation
- expressive motion / communication
- facial animation
- group and crowd behavior
- intuitive interfaces for creating and editing animations
- mathematical foundations of animation
- methods of control and artistic direction of simulations
- machine learning techniques for animation
- nature in motion (natural phenomena, plants, clouds, …)
- new time-based art forms on the computer
- novel time-varying phenomena
- perceptual metrics and foundations of animation
- physical realism / measuring the real world for animation
- physical simulation
- fluid animation
- planning / learning / optimization for animation
- real-time and interactive methods
- camera control methods for computer animation
- sound and speech for animation
as well as on related problems in robotics, game development, human-computer interaction, simulation, visualization, computer vision, and others.
We also invite submissions to the poster and demo session, which has traditionally been an integral part of the SCA program. The poster session will be held prior to the reception Friday evening and will follow a posters fast-forward session during which all presenters will have the opportunity to give a one-to-two minute description of their work. Additionally, a best paper award will be presented to the top poster!
Posters will be included in the ACM and EG digital libraries. Note however that as usual, a SCA poster does not preclure subsequent publication of a complete paper on the same topic by the same authors (however, a SCA poster by other authors is considered prior art and should be cited as such).
We encourage any of the following types of poster submissions:
- Up and coming computer animation research
- Technically novel production work
- Lab overviews which present a snapshot of the ongoing animation-related research at a given institution
- Half-baked ideas and negative results
- Work done outside of SCA that would be of interest to the computer animation community. This includes animation-related works recently accepted to other conferences such as I3D or NPAR.
