  • Short Papers (up to 4 pages)
  • Poster Papers (1 page)

All accepted papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings and will be included in ACM digital library (EI-indexed). Authors of Selected Full papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their manuscripts for possible publication in the Journal of Computer Animation and Virtual Worlds by John Wiley.


Papers and should be submitted in the PDF file format and Supplementary materials (e.g., videos) should be compressed in the ZIP file format through EasyChair [Submit here].


Authors are required to submit anonymous fully formatted papers, with graphs, images, and other special areas arranged as intended for final publication. Please use the ACM SIGGRAPH paper preparation guidelines. Authors are also required to submit a PDF version of the paper that contains the paper’s online ID number, without any author identification. No hardcopy is needed. Please be careful to keep the PDF version anonymous (in some operating systems, the “properties” of a PDF file may contain the creator’s name).

Paper Length

The maximum length for a full paper submission is 10 pages. The maximum length for a short paper submission is 4 pages.

Supplementary Materials

Submissions may be optionally accompanied by additional materials such as images, videos, or electronic documents. These materials do not form a part of the official submission and will be viewed only at the discretion of the reviewers. All content should be in a portable format that is unlikely to require the user to download additional programs (for example, PDF or HTML for documents, JPEG for images, and QuickTime or MPEG for video). Additional materials should not exceed a total of 40MB. To the extent possible, accepted papers should stand on their own, with the MPEGs providing supplementary information or confirmation of results. However it is appropriate to refer to the video footages in the paper.

Important Dates

All deadlines are 23:59 UTC/GMT.

Full/Short Papers Submission: 25 May 2013
Notification of Acceptance: 10 July 2013
Camera ready: 20 July 2013
