NPAR 2010

8th ACM symposium on Non-Photorealistic Animation and Rendering (NPAR 2010)
                     June 7-10, Annecy, France

We invite you to submit your work to NPAR 2010, the 8th international
symposium dedicated to non-photorealistic animation and rendering,
sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH and in cooperation with Eurographics. This
year NPAR returns to its traditional home in Annecy, France. It will
be at the 50th anniversary Annecy International Animated Film Festival
and will be held in joint session with the Sketch Based Interfaces and
Modeling (SBIM) workshop.

Important dates:

15 March, 2010 -  Papers deadline (* see below)
5 April, 2010 -  Papers acceptance notification
5 April, 2010 - Posters deadline
1 May, 2010 - Posters acceptance notification
7-10 June, 2010 -  Conference


    * A special issue of the Elsevier journal Computers and Graphics will
feature extended NPAR papers
    * Extended April 2, 2010 deadline for research papers rejected
from SIGGRAPH 2010 (abstract due 15 March, see below)
    * Traditional research joined by new production and "meta" paper categories
    * More information at

All work must be previously unpublished and contain a novel
contribution. Production and Meta papers need not contain original
research or results.
Topic areas of the conference include but are not limited to:

    * Expressive character animation and physics
    * Abstraction and stylization of images/video
    * Interaction techniques
    * Accounts of real productions (e.g., animated films)
    * NPAR in real software products (e.g., modeling, visualization,
presentation software)
    * Visual composition
    * Hardware acceleration
    * Evaluation methods for NPAR algorithms
    * Psychophysics of NPAR
    * Rendering and layout for text and presentation graphics
    * Quantitative analysis of human artists
    * Generative or evolutionary approaches
    * Style transfer
    * Temporal and spatial coherence
    * Adapting classic CG effects like motion blur, depth of field,
and lighting for NPAR
    * Simulation of natural media and traditional styles
    * Non-traditional camera models
    * Position papers on grand challenges


Paper submissions should be at most 9 single-sided color pages in
length and follow the ACM SIGGRAPH sponsored conference formatting
instructions, including a title page with an abstract and keywords,
and a bibliography. For the first time, this year the bibliography
will not count towards the page limit. The submission is electronic in
PDF format; supplemental video and images may also be submitted.
Accepted papers will be selected by double-blind peer-review, so they
should be anonymous when submitted. The accepted papers will be
published in the conference proceedings by ACM SIGGRAPH and will be
available online via the ACM Digital Library. Posters will not be
archived. Posters may be submitted in PDF format as either an extended
abstract or a a draft of the poster itself. All paper submissions will
automatically be considered for poster presentation as well.


Full papers deadline:	March 15, 2010* (see exemption for works
submitted to SIGGRAPH 2010 below)
SIGGRAPH-submitted papers abstract deadline:	March 15, 2010*
SIGGRAPH-submitted full papers deadline:	April 2, 2010*
Papers acceptance notification:	April 5, 2010
Posters deadline:	April 5, 2010

* The extended "SIGGRAPH" deadline allows authors who have work
rejected from SIGGRAPH 2010 to have an opportunity to improve their
papers and submit them to NPAR 2010. If you submitted a technical
paper to SIGGRAPH 2010 and would like to also be considered for
publication at NPAR, make the following submissions:

   1. March 15, 2010: Submit an extended abstract (e.g., the first
page of your SIGGRAPH submission) and your complete SIGGRAPH reviews
to NPAR. This is explicitly permitted by the SIGGRAPH dual submission
   2. April 2, 2010: Submit a complete paper, your complete SIGGRAPH
reviews (again), and a cover letter explaining how you improved your
paper to address issues in the reviews. It will then be re-reviewed
for NPAR. If your paper was accepted at SIGGRAPH you must withdraw
from consideration at NPAR.
