ARTeFACTo 2018 has the format of a conference with technical sessions, invited talks, discussion panels, and exhibition areas for artefacts and installations. Contributions can be in the form of full papers, short papers and proposals for posters and artefacts 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 or the overall creation process, from seminal concept, implementation until the final exhibition preparation or the fruition experience analysis;
- A short paper up to four pages for posters or the conceptual and technical information concerningartefact / artinstallations, computer artwork proposals.
Submissions are accepted in the conference 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, as this is required by ACM for publishing in the Digital Library.
ARTeFACTo 2018 uses a double-blind reviewing process. As such, submitted papers / artefacts / installation proposals should not have 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 marks of their affiliation in figures and supplementary material and remove metadata from submission files.
In addition to the text, made anonymous, for each paper, separate identification info must be provided at Easy Chair (easychair.org/conferences/?conf=artefacto2018), containing:
- Name, organization, mailing and e-mail addresses of each author
- Name of the contact author
- A list of keywords
Submissions must follow the ACM guidelines and template available here: ACM_SigConf.docx
In addition to author keywords, authors must provide a classification for their papers using ACM Computing Classification System (CCS). The classification system is available at http://dl.acm.org/ccs/ccs.cfm. You should examine the CCS thoroughly, but we recommend looking particularly inside the following categories:
- Information systems -> Information systems applications
- Information systems -> Multimedia information systems
- Human-centered computing
- Applied computing -> Arts and humanities
Technical questions regarding the template can be directed at firstname.lastname@example.org
Photos, color pictures or graphics must be inserted only in two pages (full paper) or one page (short paper, artefact/installation proposals).
Authors of selected papers presented in the conference (including essays describing the best art installations) will be published primarily in the ARTeFACTo Journal (ISSN: 2184-2086) and also invited to submit extended versions to selected journals.
The Submission of a paper or art installation implies the intention of at least one of the authors to register and attend to the conference in order to perform a spoken presentation. Papers that are 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).
