ARTECH 2021 – 10th International Conference on Digital and Interactive Arts – has the format of a conference with technical sessions, invited talks, discussion panels, and exhibition areas for installations and artworks. Contributions can be in the form of full papers, short papers and proposals for posters and art installations/artworks. Authors are invited to submit:

• A full paper of six to ten pages for oral presentation;
• A short paper up to four pages for posters or the conceptual and technical information concerning art installations, digital and media artworks’ proposals.

For artwork submissions please provide detailed information about the technical/equipment/exhibition space specific requirements needed for artwork exposition. Add extra further pages with explaining schemes/images if needed.


(First register with EasyChair to proceed with submission)

Submissions are accepted in the conference official languages: English and Portuguese. If your paper 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.

ARTECH 2021  uses a double blind reviewing process. As such, submitted papers 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, 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 at this link.

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 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

Photos, color pictures or graphics must be inserted only in two pages (full paper) or one page (short paper).


Papers will be published by ACM ICPS and will be available through ACM’s Digital Library. Also the conference proceedings will be submitted to the international indexing database Scopus and Web Of Science.

A selection of the best papers will be proposed for publication in appropriate scientific journals.

The Submission of a paper implies the intention of at least one of the authors to register and attend the conference in order to perform a spoken presentation. Papers that are accepted and presented at the symposium 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).

Note that remote presentation of papers and artworks will be authorised granted all the necessary technical requirements.
