Come join some of the finest animation academics and working professionals in 2023!

We are considering proposals for sessions organized around a theme, special panels, and/or individual papers.  Sessions are scheduled in 1½ hour slots, typically with four papers or speakers per standard session.  Presentations should not exceed 15 minutes. Working professionals, scholars, educators, and graduate students are all encouraged to submit.

 

Proposals which consider the diversity of animation in relation to popular culture are welcomed. Possible themes for papers/panels include but are not restricted to:

 

Animated adaptations, comics and animation, propaganda, public information, advertising, animated television series, animation for education, animation history, animation aesthetics, gender issues, animation studios, online animation, comedy, documentary, South Park, Adult Swim, the work of Matt Groening, CGI/animated special effects, anime, or any aspect of animation production.

 

Screening times can be requested to view your source material, as well as to screen new animation that you create. We may also host nightly screenings and end the week with an all-animation area dinner.

 

Interested individuals are asked to submit an abstract of no more than 250 words (including presentation title) and complete contact information (name, institutional affiliation, mail and e-mail addresses, and contact telephone number).
