Call for posters

Call for Posters

The SCA poster and demo session is the perfect opportunity for authors to display late-breaking technical achievements that are not yet ready for publication as a full paper. As in previous years, the poster and demo session will be an integral part of the SCA program. The poster session will be held Monday evening, and will follow a fast-forward session during which all presenters will give a one-minute description of their work. A Best Poster award will be presented to the top poster.


Posters are not formal publications. Work submitted as a poster is still eligible for later publication, and will be exempt from inclusion in the ACM and Eurographics Digital Libraries. However, the 2-page extended abstracts will still be distributed to the attendees on the preprint proceedings USB drive. We encourage any of the following types of poster submissions:
• Up and coming computer animation research
• Technically novel production work
• 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.
• Lab overviews which present a snapshot of the ongoing animation-related research at a given institution
• Work in progress and negative results


The poster submission should consist of a PDF formatted according to the EG style, and be no more than 2 pages in length. Please note that this template is different from the full papers template! Submissions must be camera-ready, with author names and affiliations listed. The review process will be single blind.

Electronic Submission

All PDF poster submissions should be submitted via email to by the deadline. Due to GMail’s limits, each email message must be less than 25MB. If this is not sufficient for your submission or supplemental materials, you may send your submission in parts as attachments to several emails. For supplemental materials, links to external websites are also allowable.

The submission of supplementary materials is not required, but a draft of the poster of size A0 in PDF format is encouraged. 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.

Fast Forward

Authors of accepted posters will be required to provide an approximately one minute video clip describing their work. Typically no audio content will be needed, but is allowed if necessary. To avoid playback problems at the conference, we request all videos to be encoded in the WMV format.
