Call for Papers

The 37th International Conference on Computer Animation and Social Agents (CASA 2024) will be held on June 5-7, 2024, in Wuhan, China. The conference is organized by the Wuhan Textile University (WTU), Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), State Key Laboratory of Computer Science, Institute of Software, Chinese Academy of Sciences and State Key Laboratory of Multimodal Artificial Intelligence Systems/National Laboratory of Pattern Recognition, Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences. It is supported by the Computer Graphics Society (CGS). CASA is the oldest international conference in computer animation and social agents in the world. It was founded in Geneva in 1988 under the name of Computer Animation (CA) by the Computer Graphics Society (CGS). In the past few years, CASA was held in Europe (Belgium, Netherlands, France, Switzerland, UK, etc.), Asia (Korea, China, Singapore) and the United States. CASA 2024 will provide a great opportunity to interact with leading experts, share your own work, and educate yourself through exposure to the research of your peers from around the world.
