Call for Papers

The 29th International Conference on Computer Animation and Social Agents (CASA 2016) will be held at University of Geneva, on the beautiful BIOTECH Campus on May 23-25, 2016.

The conference is organized by MIRALab, University of Geneva in cooperation with ACM-SIGGRAPH and The Eurographics Association.

CASA is the oldest international conference in computer animation and social agents in the world. It was founded in Geneva in 1988 under the name of Computer Animation (CA). In the last past ten years, CASA was held in Switzerland (2006), Belgium (2007), Korea (2008), Netherlands (2009), France (2010), China (2011), Singapore (2012), Turkey (2013), United States (2014) and Singapore (2015).
