ARTeFACTo 2022 MACAO will be held on the 24th and 25th of November 2022 at the University of Saint Joseph, in Macau S.A.R. (China) and hosted by the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. The goal of the conference is to promote interest in the current digital media culture and its intersection with art, communication and technology as an important research field while focusing on the study of digital media artefacts, embracing topics covering their conceptualization, design, creative/art practice/research processes, computational implementation, exhibition and fruition as well their role in today’s information and knowledge society, fostering the establishment of the conceptual foundations of an artefact theory in the digital media world.

ARTeFACTo 2022 MACAO aims at giving greater visibility to artefact creators and researchers, theorists or practitioners, establishing a common space for the discussion and exchange of new experiences while fostering a better understanding of digital arts and culture across a wide spectrum of cultural, disciplinary, and professional practices. To this end, we cordially invite scholars, teachers, researchers, artists, computer professionals, and others working within the broadly defined areas of digital media arts, communication, culture and education, with a specific focus on artefacts and artistic installations, to join us.

ARTeFACTo 2022 MACAO‘s International Scientific and Artistic Committee comprises experts in various disciplines. The conference program will consist of keynote speakers by eminent specialists, oral presentations (local and remote) of the contributed papers, art installations, videos and posters of work in progress.

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.

Please refer to the following page for more instructions in preparing your article with Microsoft word / Latex. Click here.
Technical questions regarding the template can be directed to

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):
