Below is a tentative schedule, with suggested papers for each topic. Other papers could be presented instead; those responsible for the topic should look through the text and the papers, and decide what material/papers are appropriate for presentation.

For an additional source of papers, see Michiel van de Panne's web page of computer animation resources

The Graphics Interface papers are available online; we have provided links to those web pages. The SIGGRAPH papers are available in both the CGL library and the Davis Centre library. Most of the ACM papers are available electronically through Trellis. Many of these papers are also available online directly, and have links provided below. Many of the links to the SIGGRAPH papers came from http://www.cs.brown.edu/~tor/sig2001.html.

Here are some additional links related to computer animation:
