Workshop 1:

AniNex – The 5th Workshop on Next Generation Computer Animation Techniques

The 5th AniNex Workshop on Next Generation Computer Animation Techniques aims to bring together researchers from various fields to present and discuss their latest findings on interdisciplinary approaches to computer animation. The 5th AniNex workshop will be collocated with the 36th International Conference on Computer Animation and Social Agents (CASA 2023). The conference will take place in Limassol, Cyprus from May 29-31, 2023. Selected best papers will be recommended for publication in the journals: The Visual Computer (SCI) of Springer, Computer Animation and Virtual Worlds (SCI) of Wiley and Computers & Graphics (SCI) of Springer.

The AniNex workshop aims to disseminate state-of-the-art research related to computer animation, with a focus on advanced physics-based animation and machine learning solutions. It will provide special focus on advanced physics-based animation, such as multi-phase fluids, and novel machine learning solutions for computer generated imagery.
