Computer Graphics Computer Vision & Pattern Recognition

ACM SIGGRAPH / Eurographics Symposium on Computer Animation 2022
This year, the 21st annual ACM SIGGRAPH / Eurographics Symposium on Computer Animation (SCA), the premier forum for innovations in computer animation and physics-based simulation, will be a hybrid face-to-face and online event. The conference is hosted at Durham University UK with live online broadcast on 13th-15th, September. You are welcome to participate either physically or online.
We consider animation and simulation in a broad sense defined as computation dealing with time-varying phenomena, and invite you to submit high-quality work. Accepted full papers will be published in the journal Computer Graphics Forum, a leading journal for in-depth technical articles on computer graphics. Accepted short papers will be published in the conference proceedings indexed by ACM and Eurographics.
The conference topics include:
2D 3D and N-D animation systems
Autonomous agents
Clothing animation and simulation
Expressive motion / communication
Generative and morphable models
3D and 4D motion modeling
Learned character control
Facial animation
Feature learning of motions faces body shapes and hand gestures
Group and crowd behavior
Interactive computer graphics
Intuitive interfaces for creating and editing animations
Mathematical foundations of animation
Methods of control and artistic direction of simulations
Machine learning techniques for animation
Modeling and simulation of natural phenomena
Nature in motion (natural phenomena plants clouds etc.)
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 and simulation
Planning / learning / optimization for animation
Real-time and interactive methods
Camera control methods for computer animation
Sound and speech for animation
... as well as related problems in robotics game development, human-computer interaction, simulation visualization, computer vision and others.
Full papers are permitted to be up to 12 pages in length, short papers up to 4 pages in length, including acknowledgements, references, etc. Both full and short papers will be given oral presentations in the conference. All submissions will be reviewed on the basis of technical quality, novelty, significance, and clarity. Submissions should use the EG latex template downloaded from here. The submit site will be announced shortly.
The review process will be double-blind and an anonymous version of your manuscript should be submitted as a single PDF file. Supplemental material such as additional descriptions or videos may also be submitted electronically and will be made available to reviewers (max. 250MB). We will open the submission system on our conference website in the upcoming weeks. SCA has a strict two-cycle review process. That means, papers will be rejected after conditional acceptance if they fail to incorporate the required changes.
By submitting your article to an ACM Publication, you are hereby acknowledging that you and your co-authors are subject to all ACM Publications Policies, including ACM's new Publications Policy on Research Involving Human Participants and Subjects. Alleged violations of this policy or any ACM Publications Policy will be investigated by ACM and may result in a full retraction of your paper, in addition to other potential penalties, as per ACM Publications Policy.
Please ensure that you and your co-authors obtain an ORCID ID, so you can complete the publishing process for your accepted paper. ACM has been involved in ORCID from the start and we have recently made a commitment to collect ORCID IDs from all of our published authors. The collection process has started and will roll out as a requirement throughout 2022. We are committed to improve author discoverability, ensure proper attribution and contribute to ongoing community efforts around name normalization; your ORCID ID will help in these efforts.
To meet the cost of the conference, one full registration is required for each accepted paper. The registration site will be opened in June.
