The 19th annual Symposium on Computer Animation (SCA) will be held in Montreal, Canada, August 24-26, and the symposium will be hosted at McGill University in Canada.

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 Montréal!

Call for Papers

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.

All accepted papers will be published in the journal Computer Graphics Forum.

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
