Art Papers

Art Papers are more artistically-oriented papers than Technical Papers. You can present any type of artwork, as long as digital technologies are used in it. If you produced a cutting-edge digital art such as a computer animation and an interactive art, Art Papers would be a great showcase at an oral presentation.

You should describe an artistic motivation, a background of your artwork, and how digital technologies are involved in your work, and so on.
