Description

Welcome ​to ​the ​7th ​International ​ACM ​SIGGRAPH ​Conference ​on ​Motion ​in ​Games ​2014 ​(MIG ​2014).

Games ​have ​become ​a ​very ​important ​medium ​for ​education, ​therapy ​and ​entertainment. ​Motion ​plays ​a ​crucial ​role ​in ​computer ​games. ​Characters ​move ​around, ​objects ​are ​manipulated ​or ​move ​due ​to ​physical ​constraints, ​entities ​are ​animated, ​and ​the ​camera ​moves ​through ​the ​scene. ​Even ​the ​motion ​of ​the ​player ​nowadays ​is ​used ​as ​input ​to ​games. ​Motion ​is ​currently ​studied ​in ​many ​different ​areas ​of ​research, ​including ​graphics ​and ​animation, ​game ​technology, ​robotics, ​simulation, ​computer ​vision, ​and ​also ​physics, ​psychology, ​and ​urban ​studies. ​Cross-fertilization ​between ​these ​communities ​can ​considerably ​advance ​the ​state-of-the-art ​in ​the ​area. ​The ​goal ​of ​the ​Motion ​in ​Games ​conference ​is ​to ​bring ​together ​researchers ​from ​this ​variety ​of ​fields ​to ​present ​their ​most ​recent ​results, ​to ​initiate ​collaborations, ​and ​to ​contribute ​to ​the ​establishment ​of ​the ​research ​area. ​The ​conference ​will ​consist ​of ​regular ​paper ​sessions, ​poster ​presentations, ​and ​as ​well ​as ​presentations ​by ​a ​selection ​of ​internationally ​renowned ​speakers ​in ​all ​areas ​related ​to ​games ​and ​simulation. ​The ​conference ​includes ​entertaining ​cultural ​and ​social ​events ​that ​foster ​casual ​and ​friendly ​interactions ​among ​the ​participants.

The ​MIG ​2014 ​conference ​will ​be ​held ​at ​the ​University ​of ​Southern ​California ​(USC) ​Institute ​for ​Creative ​Technologies ​in ​Playa ​Vista, ​California, ​U.S.A. ​Playa ​Vista ​is ​located ​in ​Los ​Angeles ​County, ​California, ​about ​10 ​minutes ​north ​of ​the ​Los ​Angeles ​(LAX) ​airport. ​The ​conference ​is ​located ​10 ​minutes ​from ​the ​beach ​areas ​of ​Santa ​Monica, ​Venice, ​as ​well ​as ​20 ​minutes ​from ​Beverly ​Hills, ​Hollywood ​and ​downtown ​Los ​Angeles.
