The 20th annual Symposium on Computer Animation (SCA) is scheduled for the week of September 7th, 2021, and due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic will be held entirely online. Stay tuned for updates including instructions for accessing the conference virtual platforms.

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. We hope to see you there!
