SCA Awards (New this year!)

The following awards will be presented at the SCA conference, for the first time:

SCA Doctoral Dissertation Award

The SCA Doctoral Dissertation Award is awarded to recognize a recent doctoral candidate who has successfully defended their Ph.D. dissertation in computer animation. This award recognizes young researchers who have already made a notable contribution very early during their doctoral study.
The dissertation must have been defended in the year prior to the given SCA year (e.g., Jan 1 - Dec 31, 2020 for the 2021 SCA). The key criteria used to evaluate the nominations include technical depth, significance of the research contribution, and potential impact on theory and practice.

Submission Materials (send to sca2021awards@gmail.com by Feb 28, 2021)
  • Letter of nomination by a faculty member
  • CV for the nominee, including a complete list of publications
  • Electronic version (PDF) of the Ph.D. dissertation

SCA Early Career Researcher Award

The SCA Early Career Researcher Award is given to a researcher who has made a recent, significant contribution to the field of computer animation and is new to the field (i.e., received their Ph.D. or the equivalent up to five years ago, excluding eligible leaves for maternity, illness, parental). The intent is to recognize people who have already made a notable contribution very early in their careers and are likely to make more. Self-nominations accepted.
