Abstract. Billiards with moving boundaries can be viewed as the limiting case of rigid ones, constructed on an augmented configuration space. The metric is defined by a new kinetic energy, singular in the limit. We describe the symplectic structure of the time-dependent billiard map and specify suitable coordinates for the convex case of dimension 2.
