ACM SIGGRAPH Frontiers, Frontiers Workshop: Workshop – Sim-to-Real: From Skilled Virtual Agents to Real-World Robots
Event TypeACM SIGGRAPH Frontiers, Frontiers Workshop

TimeSunday, 28 July 20199am - 5pm
DescriptionFor over three decades, SIGGRAPH has been the premier forum for research innovations in physics-based character animation. The overarching goal in this on-going effort is to study the biomechanical, motor control, and motor learning principles that lead to the skilled motions exhibited by humans and animals. To ensure that lessons learned along the way are not confined to virtual environments, this workshop will bring together an interdisciplinary group of researchers to discuss the current gap between simulation and the real world. In so doing, we will identify key challenges and opportunities that bridge the fields of computer animation and robotics.
