Present CFP : 2023


The 16th annual ACM/SIGGRAPH conference on Motion, Interaction and Games (MIG 2023, formerly Motion in Games), an ACM SIGGRAPH Specialized Conferences, held in cooperation with Eurographics, will take place in Rennes, France, 15th - 17th Nov 2023. See the MIG website: https://project.inria.fr/mig2023/.

The goal of the Motion, Interaction, and Games conference is to be a platform for bringing together researchers from interactive systems and animation, and have them present their most recent results, initiate collaborations, and contribute to the advancement of the research area. The conference will consist of regular paper sessions for long and short papers, and talks by a selection of internationally renowned speakers from Academia as well as from the Industry.

The conference organizers invite researchers to consider submitting their highest quality research for publication in MIG 2023.


We invite submissions of original, high-quality papers in any of the topics of interest (see below) or related topics. Each submission should be 7-9 pages in length for a long paper, or 4-6 pages for a short paper. References are excluded from the page limit. We encourage authors with content that can be fit into 6 pages to submit as a short paper and only to submit a long paper if the content requires it.

All submissions will be double-blind peer-reviewed by our international program committee for technical quality, novelty, significance, and clarity. Double-blind means that paper submissions must be anonymous and include the unique paper ID that will be assigned upon creating a submission using the online system.
Papers should not have previously appeared in, or be currently submitted to, any other conference or journal. For each accepted contribution, at least one of the authors must register for the conference.

All submissions will be considered for the Best Paper, Best Student Paper, and Best Presentation awards, which will be conferred during the conference. Authors of selected best papers will be referred (under validation) to submit extended and significantly revised versions for a Special Issue of Computers & Graphics journal.

All submissions should be formatted using the SIGGRAPH formatting guidelines (sigconf). Latex template can be found here: https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template

All papers should be submitted electronically using EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mig2023
