Conference Call for Papers

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 “Maison des Mines” 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. Posters are not formal publications, so work submitted as a poster is still eligible for later publication, and will be exempt from inclusion in the ACM and EG digital libraries. Details regarding submission format will be announced closer to the deadline.
