Call for Papers

 

Overview

Welcome to the 2020 ArtsIT, Interactivity & Game Creation International Conference site.

ArtsIT (abbreviated name for ease of writing) takes place from November 5 to 6 in Aalborg, Denmark. 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 the 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.

Game Creation goals include to bring together game researchers, developers and players in order to exchange ideas on ideas, designs, concepts, art, interactivity, programming and programming techniques. The idea is that such convergences of people in the field will be beneficial to the local, national and international gaming industries and academia through what is experienced at ArtsIT international conference. Another aspect is that the event hopes to attract next-generation gamers so as to steer young people into this industry by providing how-to tutorials and giving opportunities to illustrate ideas with demos to the gaming industry whilst also opening up for the associated fields of digital arts and technologies and interactions/interactivity. Companies will also have the opportunity to seek new talent at this unique event and to complement NordikFilm plan to posit a seminar or presentation on investment into game studios in Denmark/Scandinavia.

ArtsIT has been successfully co-located with the international conference on 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.
