13th Advances in Computer Entertainment Technology Conference
Osaka, Japan, 9-12 November, 2016
Full/Short Paper Submission: 27 May 2016

ACE has become one of the leading scientific forums 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 2016 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 an exciting, cultural, and stimulating environment. 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.

ACE2016 - running under the theme "Opening up the world of entertainment 
computing research" - embraces diversity, challenge, and openness. As 
such ACE2016 is committed to stimulating cross-disciplinary exchange, to 
push the frontiers of computer entertainment technology, and to reach 
out to broader audiences. For the first time ACE will thus open its 
Creative Showcase exhibition to the general public which will provide 
researchers with an exciting opportunity to expose their research to a 
large and diverse audience. Moreover, ACE2016 will be co-located with 
Entertainment Computing EC2016, one of the largest annual symposiums in 
Japan to which ACE2016 attendees will have free access.
