Submission is via Easy Chair at where you will be prompted to set up a free Easy Chair account if you don’t have one already.

All submitted papers should be fully anonymized.
Please exclude any author and institution information from the author list on the title page, remove author information from all paper headers, and remove any clues that would directly identify any of the authors. Please anonymize your submission file. Please also check that your PDF creator programs did not include author information in the metadata.

Citations of your own published work (including online) should be in the third person, in a manner that is not traceable to the identity of the authors. For example, the wording “in [4], Valley and Sea have proposed…” is acceptable, whereas “in [4], we have proposed…” is not. (Where reference [4] is listed explicitly as “Valley, D. and Sea, A., Detecting Valley and Sea, In Proc. XYZ ’24, 901–911.”)

Please refrain from mentioning the name of your institution in the study approval statement. For example, do not say, “Our study was approved by the IRB board at the University of Arts,” as that reveals your university’s name.

Please do not include an “acknowledgments” section in the submission. If your Art Paper is accepted, you will submit a revised version that identifies you and your co-authors, your affiliations, and any appropriate acknowledgments.”


You are invited to submit in the single-column paper format using the ACM master template: [Overleaf] [Word] [PDF]


All selected papers will be included in a proceedings document published at Ars Electronica Archive and Expanded Animation.
