ACM SIGGRAPH Motion, Interaction, and GAMES 2024

Welcome to MIG 2024!

Motion plays a crucial role in interactive applications, such as VR, AR, and video games. Characters move around, objects are manipulated or they move due to physical constraints, entities are animated, and the camera moves through the scene. Motion is currently studied in many different research areas, including graphics and animation, game technology, robotics, simulation, and computer vision, as well as physics, psychology, and urban studies. Cross-fertilization between these communities can considerably advance the state-of-the-art in the area.

The Motion, Interaction, and Games conference aims to bring together researchers from these fields to present their most recent results, initiate collaborations, and help advance this research area. The conference will feature regular paper sessions, poster presentations, and keynote speeches by a selection of internationally renowned speakers in all areas related to interactive systems and simulation. The conference includes entertaining cultural and social events that foster casual and friendly interactions among the participants.

NEWS

  • Paper submission deadline is extended to July 26th, 2024.
  • Paper submission is open.
  • Call for papers is announced.
  • The 17th annual ACM SIGGRAPH conference on Motion, Interaction and Games (MIG ‘24) will take place at George Mason University- Mason Square (Arlington Campus), 21-23 November 2024.

SCOPE

We invite original work on a broad range of topics, including but not limited to:

  • Animation systems
  • Behavioral animation
  • Character animation
  • Clothes, skin and hair
  • Crowd simulation
  • Deformable models
  • Facial animation
  • Game interaction and player experience
  • Game technology
  • Gesture recognition
  • Group and crowd behavior
  • Human motion analysis
  • Interaction in virtual and augmented reality
  • Interactive storytelling in games
  • Machine learning techniques for animation
  • Motion capture & retargeting
  • Motion control
  • Motion in Performing Arts
  • Motion in sports
  • Motion rehabilitation systems
  • Multimodal interaction: haptics, sound, etc.
  • Navigation & path planning
  • Particle systems
  • Physics-based animation
  • Real-time fluids
  • Virtual humans


SUBMISSION

We invite submissions of original, high-quality papers on any of the topics of interest mentioned above or any related topic. Submissions can be 4-6 pages for short papers, and up to 10 pages in length for long papers, excluding references.  We encourage authors to submit their work as a short paper if the content can fit the 6-page limit. Videos are required for techniques involving motion or animation. 

All accepted papers, long and short, will appear in the conference proceedings and archived in the ACM Digital Library.

We also invite submissions of poster papers on any of the topics of interest and related areas. Each submission should be 1-2 pages in length. Two types of work can be submitted directly for poster presentation:

  • Work that has been published elsewhere but is of particular relevance to the MIG community can be submitted as a poster. This work and the venue in which it is published should be identified in the abstract;
  • Work that is of interest to the MIG community but is not yet mature enough to appear as a paper.


Posters will not appear in the conference proceedings or the ACM Digital Library.

All submissions should be formatted using the SIGGRAPH formatting guidelines (sigconf). Latex template can be found here. For the review version, please use the command:

\documentclass[sigconf, screen, review, anonymous]{acmart})

The review process will be dual anonymous, and papers should not have previously appeared in, or be currently submitted to, any other conference or journal. All papers will be reviewed by at least three (3) experts from the Program Committee. There is no rebuttal process.

Papers and supplementary material should be submitted using EasyChair:: https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=mig2024

Extended Journal Submissions

After the conference, all authors of accepted long papers are invited to submit revised and extended versions of their work to a special issue of the Computers & Graphics journal. Extended papers are required to contribute at least an additional 30%, including new results, additional experiments, and/or improvements to the original methodology. Extended versions will be evaluated based on their scientific contribution rather than page length.
