SCA 2012 Call for Participation
The Symposium on Computer Animation (SCA) is the premiere forum for innovations in the software and technology of computer animation. The 11th annual event 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. Don't miss out!
- May 29th, 2012: Deadline for SCA paper submission (end of day in any time zone)
- June 25th, 2012: Notification of conditionally accepted papers
- June 30th, 2012: Deadline for poster submissions
- July 12th, 2012: Notification of poster acceptance
- July 16th, 2012: Camera-ready papers and posters due
- July 29th-31st, 2012: Symposium
We invite submissions 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. The SCA 2012 electronic proceedings will be archived in the EG and ACM digital libraries. There will be best paper awards, and honorable mentions to the top 10% of submissions. Top papers will also be invited to have extended versions appear in a TVCG Special Section.
New this year, we are also inviting short paper submissions for quick dissemination of compact and good ideas in a shorter presentation format. Short papers should be 4 to 6 pages, and will be included in the main track of the conference and will also appear in the electronic proceedings and be archived in the EG and ACM digital libraries.
Authors of some declined papers with high potential will be invited to submit their work to the combined posters and demos sessions.
We invite work on a broad range of topics, including:
- 2D, 3D, and N-D animation systems
- 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
- nature in motion (natural phenomena, plants, clouds, ...)
- new time-based art forms on the computer
- novel time-varying phenomena
- perceptual metrics for animation
- perceptual foundations of animation
- physical realism / measuring the real world for animation
- physical simulation
- planning / learning / optimization for animation
- real-time and interactive methods
- sound and speech for animation
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. The SCA'12 electronic proceedings will be archived in the EG and ACM digital libraries.

Papers should be submitted electronically using the online submission system given above. Paper submissions must be anonymous and include the unique paper ID that will be assigned upon creating a submission using the online system. Format your paper according to the EG publication style given above. Papers should not exceed 10 pages and should be written and presented in English. Papers should not have previously appeared in, or be currently submitted to, any other conference or journal. Supplementary material such as videos may also be submitted electronically and will be made available to reviewers. If you require additional space, please contact the program chairs at the email address given above. 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.
Supplementary material such as videos may also be submitted electronically and will be made available to reviewers (size up to 50MB).
SCA uses double-blind reviewing, so please remove all personal data, such as author names and affiliation from your submission! Please use your submission ID instead of author names.
To be included in the proceedings, authors must present their work at the symposium. Authors of accepted papers will be responsible for preparing a final camera-ready electronic version of their paper. In addition to the archival digital library proceedings, a proceedings preprint USB drive will be disseminated at the event. 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 in the electronic proceedings (USB drive and digital archive).
The SCA poster and demo session is the perfect opportunity for authors to display late-breaking technical achievements that are not yet ready for publication as a full paper. As in previous years, the poster and demo session will be an integral part of the SCA program. The poster session will follow a fast-forward session during which all presenters will give a one-minute description of their work. New this year! A Best Poster award will be presented to the top poster.
Posters are not formal publications. Work submitted as a poster is still eligible for later publication, and will be exempt from inclusion in the ACM and Eurographics Digital Libraries. However, the abstracts will still be distributed to the attendees on the preprint proceedings USB drive. We encourage any of the following types of poster submissions:
- Up and coming computer animation research
- Technically novel production work
- 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
- Lab overviews which present a snapshot of the ongoing animation-related research at a given institution
- Half-baked ideas and negative results
The SCA 2012 submission process for posters is slightly different to that for papers. For details please see the following document.

We look forward to seeing you in Lausanne!
