Call for Papers and Artworks


ARTeFACTo 2022 MACAO has a conference format with technical sessions, invited talks, discussion panels, and exhibition areas for artefacts and installations. Contributions can be in full papers, short papers and proposals for artefact exhibitions/art installations.

Authors are invited to submit:

  • A full paper of six to ten pages for oral presentation. Artefact descriptions are welcome, embracing part of the overall creation process, from seminal concept, and implementation until the final exhibition preparation or the fruition experience analysis;
  • A short paper of up to four pages of conceptual and technical information concerning artefact/art installations and interactive artwork proposals.

Due to the current pandemic situation and the travel restrictions, the conference will be on a hybrid mode; on-site and online participation are welcome. We are welcoming digital representation of artefacts/art installations to present them in a virtual exhibition if possible.

Submissions are accepted in the conference’s official languages: English and Portuguese*.

*If your paper or artefact/installation proposal is in Portuguese, please prepare an English version of the title and abstract (200 to 500 words).

ARTeFACTo 2022 MACAO uses a double-blind reviewing process. As such, submitted papers/artefacts/installation proposals should not have any author and institutional identification in the title and header areas, nor in the body of the paper.

Explicit self-references should be avoided. Instead, authors citing their own prior work should discuss it in the third person (“Previous work by <Author> [X1]…” instead of “In our previous work [X1]…”). Authors should also avoid mentioning the names of institutions where the work was done (“participants were recruited from the university campus”, instead of “participants were recruited from the <Institution name>”). Authors should also avoid clear identification of their affiliation in figures and supplementary material and remove metadata from submission files.


In addition to the anonymized text for each paper, separate identification info must be provided at Easy Chair:

  • Name, organization, country and e-mail addresses of each author
  • Name of the contact author
  • A list of keywords


Submissions must follow the IEEE guidelines.

Photos, colour pictures or graphics must be inserted only in two pages (full paper) or one page (short paper, artefact/installation proposals).

The submission of a paper or art installation implies the intention of at least one of the authors to register and attend the conference to perform a spoken presentation. Papers accepted and presented at the conference by one of the authors will appear in the conference proceedings. The final version of accepted papers should be submitted with the name of the authors and institutions (there’s no need for a further blind review).


Papers will be published as a Book of Proceedings with ISBN / ISSN  and available through FAH’s Digital Library. Also, the conference proceedings will be submitted to the international indexing database Scopus and Web Of Science (via IEEE sponsorship).
Authors of selected papers presented at the conference (including essays describing the best art installations) will be published primarily as extended versions in the ART(e)FACT(o) Journal (ISSN: 2184-2086) and also invited to submit extended versions to one of the following journals (under negotiation):
        • Journal of Science and Technology of the Arts (ISSN: 1646-9798) ( (Web of Science, Scopus).
        • *Poetics – Journal of Empirical Research on Culture, the Media and the Arts (ISSN: 0304-422X) ( (Scopus)
