SCA 2008 : The ACM SIGGRAPH / Eurographics Symposium on Computer Animation
Conference Series : Symposium on Computer Animation
Call For Papers
After six very successful symposia, SCA has become the leading forum for dissemination of the latest research results in computer animation. The goal of SCA'08 is to provide an opportunity for researchers in computer animation to interact, share new results, show live demonstrations of their work, and discuss emerging directions for the field.
A full proceedings will be published at the time of the Symposium and will appear in the EG and ACM digital libraries. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* autonomous characters
* physically based animation
* facial animation
* real-time animation, animation for games
* group and crowd behavior
* expressive motion / communication
* nonphotorealistic animation
* physical realism / measuring the real world for animation
* nature in motion (natural phenomena, plants, clouds,...)
* planning / learning / optimization for animation
* intuitive interfaces for creating and editing animations
* sound and speech for animation
* perceptual metrics for animation
* mathematical foundations of animation
* 2D animation systems
* new time-based art forms on the computer

July 7-9 '08: Symposium
Papers must be written and presented in English. Paper length should not exceed 10 A4 pages, should be anonymous and formatted according to the EG publication style. Authors must include a declaration stating that the main contribution claimed in their paper has not previously appeared in, and is not currently submitted to, any other conference or journal.
To be considered for review, all papers must be submitted electronically through the SCA submission web site. Full submission instructions and templates will also be available on the submission website. Supplementary material such as videos may also be submitted electronically and will be made available to reviewers.
All papers will be reviewed carefully by the International Program Committee members. Given the limited time between submission and final version, papers will be evaluated as submitted.
Authors of accepted papers will be responsible for preparing a final camera-ready electronic version of their paper. In addition to the printed proceedings, a DVD-ROM will be published with supplemental materials. If an author submits supplemental materials for review with their paper, that material (or a revised version) must also be provided by the authors for inclusion on the DVD-ROM.
Authors of some rejected papers with high potential will be invited to submit their work to the combined demos and poster sessions. Submissions directly targeting the Poster & Demo session are also accepted (see calendar).
Posters and Demos
Like the papers, for your poster/demo, you will submit a pdf file to your account with the file format as below. This format is slightly different from the paper submission and the page limit on poster/demo submissions is two pages. The format should follow the guidelines in the provided style file. Limit two pages.
