The proceedings of SCA 2003 will be available through both ACM and Eurographics digital Libraries.  However, due to the mutual agreement between SIGGRAPH and Eurographics, the proceedings of SCA 2003 will be published in EG format, not ACM SIGGRAPH format.  But, you are only required to sign the Eurographics copyright form.  Please sign and fax the copyright form back to Stephen Spencer by Friday, May 16, 2003.





Here is the URL for the Eurographics Copyright Form (to be completed, signed, and faxed to Stephen Spencer at 1-206-543-2969):

Here's the URL for the formatting instructions (including an important addendum concerning typeface embedding and image quality):


Here are the ULRs for the zip files containing all style files: (latex) (MS Word)


Here is the URL for all the style files and addendum to ensure the high-quality production of your final submission.





There is a page limit for all papers.  See the following guideline.  Please use the page count of your original submission to find the appropriate page limit for your final submissions:


No. of Pages in SIGGRAPH Page Limit in EG Format
4 4 b/w + 1 color plate
5 6 b/w + 1 color plate
6 7 b/w + 1 color plate
7 9 b/w + 1 color plate
8 10 b/w + 1 color plate
9 11 b/w + 1 color plate
10 12 b/w + 1 color plate
11 14 b/w + 1 color plate
12 15 b/w + 1 color plate



Based on our test trials, we believe that this new guideline should allow sufficient number of pages for conversion from SIGGRAPH to EG format.  Please contact the program chairs, if you need additional pages for your final submission.  If possible, please try to fit your papers in an even number of proceedings pages (not including the color plate).  But, do not sacrifice the quality or the content of your paper to achieve this.  Once again, please try to address the reviewers' comments as much as you can.





The final version of all papers and signed copyright forms are due Friday, May 16, 2003.  Authors shall submit the papers and color images to
