Call for Contributions

Cognitive Animation Workshop
Tenaya Lodge - Yosemite National Park - June 4,5 2008

More and more scientists are seeking ways to create
realistic animated characters that can simulate human
movement and interact with the environment autonomously
and naturally. In the past decade, computer scientists and
engineers have made tremendous advances in the areas of 
humanoid robotics and character animation. Likewise, 
cognitive scientists have notable advances in human 
animation, especially the brain functions that drive motor
control and motion perception. The Cognitive Animation 
Workshop is a forum bringing together leading scientists in
the domain of humanoid animation and their applications.

We invite submissions of 1-page abstracts for participation
at the workshop in two possible categories: (1) 25 minutes
talk, or (2) poster or demo presentation.

Submissions should be prepared as a 1-page pdf abstract 
stating the topic of the work to be presented and the 
desired category of participation. The authors names and
affiliations should be included. Submissions should be sent
by email to: mkallmann(at)ucmerced(dot)edu. More information at
the workshop website: http://graphics.ucmerced.edu/coganim/
