SCA is an emerging eminent forum for dissemination of the latest research results in computer animation.  The goal of SCA'03 is to provide an opportunity for researchers in computer animation to interact with one another, share new results, and discuss emerging directions for the field.  The symposium will be co-located with SIGGRAPH, held on the Saturday and Sunday before the main conference to encourage a broad range of participants.  A full proceedings will be published at the time of the Symposium.   


Topics 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

  - new time-based art forms on the computer
