ACM SIGGRAPH / Eurographics Symposium on Computer Animation

Final Call for Papers

The papers deadline is appraching fast! You can submit your papers by April 9, 2018 – 23:59 UTC. We also want to highlight again that all accepted submissions will be published at the CGF journal this year. As a consequence, there will be a strict 10-page limit for content (plus references). Authors will be notified of acceptance by May 18. 

Posters Program

We also invite submissions to the poster and demo session, which has traditionally been an integral part of the SCA program. The poster session will follow a posters fast-forward session during which all presenters will have the opportunity to give a one-to-two minute description of their work. Additionally, a best paper award will be given to the top poster!

Posters will be included in the ACM and EG digital libraries. Note however that as usual, a SCA poster does not preclure subsequent publication of a complete paper on the same topic by the same authors (however, a SCA poster by other authors is considered prior art and should be cited as such).

We encourage any of the following types of poster submissions:

  •     Up and coming computer animation research
  •     Technically novel production work
  •     Lab overviews which present a snapshot of the ongoing animation-related research at a given institution
  •     Half-baked ideas and negative results
  •     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.

Poster Submissions

  • Submission website (
  • SCA will be using the Eurographics / Computer Graphics Forum template style (
  • Submission deadline: May 28, 2018 – 23:59 UTC 

Submission Instructions
Poster submissions must be camera-ready, with author names and affiliations listed. The review process will be single blind. Poster abstracts should consist of a PDF formatted paper according to the Eurographics / Computer Graphics Forum publication style given above. As last year, poster abstracts are permitted to be up to two pages in length. Posters should be written and presented in English. Supplementary material such as videos may also be submitted electronically and will be made available to reviewers. Finally, we also encourage the authors to submit a draft of the poster of size A0 in PDF as supplementary material.

Poster abstracts will be included in the ACM and EG Digital Libraries, thus providing a better and longstanding referencing to such works.

Fast Forward Slide
Authors of accepted posters will be required to provide a short video describing their work for the Poster Fast Forward session. Video guidelines will be provided to presenters.

Oral Presentation
For the final presentation, videos and interactive demonstrations are highly encouraged. We will provide electrical outlets and tables so that authors can display such demonstrations using their own equipment.

About SCA

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.
