Call: 34th International Conference on Computer Animation and Social Agents (CASA 2021)

Call for Papers

The 34th International Conference on Computer Animation and Social Agents (CASA 2021)
July 15-17, 2021
Virtual (online) from Ottawa, Canada

Submission deadline: February 27, 2021

CASA is the oldest international conference in computer animation and social agents in the world. It was founded in Geneva in 1988 under the name of Computer Animation (CA). In the last past ten years, CASA was held in Switzerland (2006), Belgium (2007), Korea (2008), Netherlands (2009), France (2010), China (2011), Singapore (2012), Turkey (2013), United States (2014), Singapore (2015), Switzerland (2016), Korea (2017), China (2018), France (2019), and UK (2020).

The 34th International Conference on Computer Animation and Social Agents (CASA 2021) will be held virtually (online) July 15-17, 2021, from Ottawa, Canada. The conference is organized (tentatively in cooperation with ACM SIGGRAPH), supported by the Computer Graphics Society (CGS).

We invite full papers on topics including but not limited to Computer Animation, Embodied Agents, Social Agents, Virtual and Augmented Reality, and Visualization (see below for a detailed list).

Papers submitted by the 27th of February 2021 will be considered for publication in the special issue of Computer Animation and Virtual Worlds (CAVW) published by Wiley. The papers accepted with minor revisions will be in the special issue (about 28~30 papers in total). Those with major revision will be given a chance to resubmit and be reviewed again by the conference IPC for acceptance in a subsequent issue of CAVW. All submissions will be reviewed via a double-blind review process. Full papers are expected to be 12 pages. Authors will have to register for the conference.
