Call for Papers- General Info

Overview

Welcome to the 2018 ArtsIT, Interactivity & Game Creation International Conference site.

ArtsIT (abbreviated name for ease of writing) takes place from October 24 to 26 in Braga, Portugal. The conference brings together people from across various art forms with a keen interest in modern IT technologies. The addition of Interactivity and Game Creation in the title of the event since 2016 reflects recognition of art in these fields and the growing industries, academic, and public interest. The event also reflects the advances seen in wide adoption of Virtual, Augmented and Mixed reality technologies and authors are encouraged to submit from these fields. Work-in-progress papers are also considered and encouraged.

ArtsIT has been successfully co-located with the international conference for Design, Learning and Innovation (DLI) since 2016. This means that delegates have options of talks to attend in the parallel sessions due to adjoining presentation auditoriums. Authors can decide if their submissions are to be considered under ArtsIT or DLI, but should not submit the same paper to both events.

Braga, has been selected for hosting ArtsIT and DLI 2018 as it is a vibrant (and newly listed) UNESCO Creative City of Media Arts, where tradition and innovation meet. As host city, Braga will provide the ideal landscape for bringing together Artists, Designers, and other people working in cutting-edge technologies from a variety of backgrounds from all over the world. The atmosphere at the events is congenial, comfortable and friendly. Attendees can expect to meet like-minded people to engage in fruitful discussions and debates. Great networking can be expected from being an active delegate and we understand many close friendships have developed from the event. We are looking forward to seeing you in Braga.

Highlights

ArtsIT/DLI will be hosted at the University of Minho (UMinho) in Braga. We invite submissions of papers presenting high-quality original research addressing any of the areas listed in the conference topics.

The event is endorsed by the European Alliance for Innovation, a leading community-based organization devoted to the advancement of innovation in the field of ICT.

All registered papers will be published by Springer and made available through the SpringerLink Digital Library, one of the world’s largest scientific libraries.

ARTsIT Proceedings are indexed in leading indexing services: EI Elsevier, ISI Thomson’s Scientific and Technical Proceedings at Web of Science, Scopus, CrossRef, Google Scholar, DBLP, as well as EAI’s own EU Digital Library (EUDL).
