Call for Papers

The 36th International Conference on Computer Animation and Social Agents (CASA 2023) will be held in May 29-31, 2023 in Limassol, Cyprus. The conference is organized by the University of Cyprus and CYENS – Centre of Excellence. 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 past few years, CASA was held in Europe (Belgium, Netherlands, France, Switzerland, UK, etc.), Asia (Korea, China, Singapore) and the United States. CASA 2023 will provide a great opportunity to interact with leading experts, share your own work, and educate yourself through exposure to the research of your peers from around the world.
