Call for Submissions

The deadline for submissions to DigiPro 2021 has now passed.

Submissions closed


Submissions due: 13 May 2021

Notification of acceptance: Early June 2021

Final versions due: Late June 2021

Conference: 27-29 July 2021

The Digital Production Symposium (DigiPro 2021) brings together the world’s premier creators of digital visual effects, animation, and interactive experiences. Engineers, scientists, artists, producers and enthusiasts “get together” to share challenges, solutions, insights and novel ideas to the elaborated process of production content crafting.


We welcome submissions on any topic related to digital motion picture production or interactive content creation, including both those which had a strong impact and those that failed spectacularly. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Practical production processes and workflows
  • Computer graphics research for VFX and Animated Features
  • Emerging production technologies: cinematic VR/AR, virtual production, AI, etc.

We encourage submissions from diverse and underrepresented voices within the visual effects and digital content creation industries.

We are excited to host talks bringing discussions and leaving the audience inspired to explore further. We encourage code sharing whenever possible. Each presentation should be grounded in some way in practical production experience. Talks should not be sales pitches or product promotions, nor should they be primarily production overviews.

Each submission should convey:

  • The key idea or innovation
  • Technical substance and detail
  • Associated production experience
  • Insights and lessons learned


Submissions may take the form of a technical paper or an extended abstract with associated visual material. Novel proposals and formats are welcome, but submissions must provide sufficient technical detail to demonstrate relevance to the audience. Submissions will be reviewed by an International Program Committee. Presentations are generally 25 minutes, including Q&A.

Accepted papers will be both presented at the symposium and published in the ACM Digital Library.

Accepted submissions will receive complimentary registration.

How to submit

Written material should be submitted in PDF form; videos should be Quicktime, MPEG, or AVI.

To make a submission, visit the DigiPro 2021 site on EasyChair.

DigiPro 2021 will be held online 27-29 July 2021.

Submission Deadline: May 13, 2021, 11:59pm PDT (UTC-7:00)
