As it reaches its 8th edition, ACE has become the leading scientific forum
for dissemination of cutting-edge research results in the area of
entertainment computing. Interactive entertainment is one of the most
vibrant areas of interest in modern society and is amongst the fastest
growing industries in the world. ACE 2011 will bring together leading
researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to present their
innovative work and discuss all aspects and challenges of interactive
entertainment technology, in a cool and stimulating environment.
ACE is by nature a multi-disciplinary conference, therefore attracting
people across a wide spectrum of interests and disciplines including
computer science, design, arts, sociology, anthropology, psychology, and
marketing. The main goal of ACE is to stimulate discussion in the
development of new and compelling entertainment computing and interactive
art concepts and applications. All ACE participants are encouraged to
present work they believe will shape the future, going beyond the
established paradigms, and focusing on all areas related to interactive
entertainment including:

Affective Computing

To encourage presentation of such multi-disciplinary work, we invite
submissions that fall into the following tracks:

- Papers
Papers present original unpublished work in technical, design, and theory or
social aspects of interactive entertainment.
Submissions to this track should not exceed 8 pages in ACM format.

- Late breaking results
Provides researchers with an opportunity to present their preliminary or
exploratory work, smaller projects or research findings that are not yet
suitable for a Paper, but nonetheless are merit of discussion from an open
Submissions to this track should not exceed 2 pages in ACM format.

- Creative Showcase and Interactive Art
The Creative Showcase is open to a large variety of submissions including,
but not limited to:
   * Technical demonstrations of prototype technologies of advanced
entertainment technology
   * All varieties of video and computer games
   * Interactive art, drama, fiction and other narrative forms
   * Web and mobile-based computer entertainment
   * Audio, visual and other sensory forms of digital interaction

Submissions to this track should be accompanied of a 2 page abstract in ACM
format. All accepted submissions will be published in conference
proceedings. Authors may include videos and photos with the submission, and
such materials are strongly encouraged if they strengthen the results of the

- Workshops
Conference workshops typically provide valuable in-depth discussions of
specific topics in computer entertainment technology. If you are working in
an emerging area in entertainment computing, please consider organizing a
workshop. They are an opportunity to move a new field forward and build a
community. These workshops may consist of both invited and contributed
papers that will highlight exciting new developments and currents trends of
- Tutorials
Tutorial proposals will be considered for half-day and full-day tutorials.
Topics should have a direct relevance to the interest of ACE2011. 

- Game Competition
The ACE2011 game contest is a worldwide competition. It emphasizes the
engineering aspects of game development, not limited to programming. Teams
submit software products, covering the whole software development process.
After a careful evaluation carried out by the Program Committee, several
finalist teams will be invited to ACE 2011 in Lisbon to present and
demonstrate their projects.

Accepted manuscripts of Papers and Creative Showcase abstracts will appear
in the ACE 2011 Digital Proceedings, ACM Digital Library, a special issue of
Computers in Entertainment (ACM), and International Journal of Arts and
Technology (Inderscience), where they will remain accessible to thousands of
researchers and practitioners worldwide.
Best papers and creative showcases will be selected based on a jury of well
respected pioneers in the field attending the conference. We’ll honour the
authors of these publications by presenting awards including:
* Paper award categories: Gold, Silver, and Bronze.
* Creative showcase award categories: Gold, Silver, and Bronze
