Dear Sir or Madam

It is our pleasure to invite you to submit a paper to CONFIA 2015, the 3th edition of the International Conference on Illustration and Animation, witch combines drawing, illustration, animation and art theory in one unique event.
Organized by the Department of Design at the Polytechnic Institute of Cávado and Ave, CONFIA endeavors to be a pivotal contribution to the contemporary discussion of the areas referred above, which combine long traditions with pioneering roles in technological innovation. We intend to broadly explore the multidisciplinary space that includes illustration and the animated image, from the construction of the narrative to character development, from art theory to critical reflection on the objects that populate the market and the industry. The conference seeks quality original submissions from artists, the industry, the academic community and the market.

This year’s edition will be held in Braga on April 10,11 and 12.
All accepted full papers will be published in the conference proceedings (with ISBN).
