17th Symposium on Computer Animation (SCA)

July 2018

Paris (France)

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 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.

We invite work on a broad range of topics, including:

… 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.
