Call For Papers

Entertainment Technology Summit and Exhibition (ET Summit)

Dates: September 25 – September 26, 2017
Location: Concordia University, Montreal

The Entertainment Technology Summit is a crucial media for constructing a platform of mutual academic learning and communication about entertainment technology and everything that surrounds it. ET specialists and peers will discuss multimedia technology, HCI, AR/VR, post-production tools and techniques, and speculate on the future cinema and its convergence with CG, AI, serious games, and other domains. At the same time, we present both historical accounts of ET as well a state of the art.

In 2017 we introduce formal proceedings to be published for both industrial and academic works in the form of full articles, demos, exhibition items, installations, VR/AR screenings, storage, API, graphics technology and related. See the detailed CFP below.
