CONFIA is the International Conference on Illustration and Animation at the Polytechnic Institute of Cavado and Ave, organized by School of Design under the auspices of the Masters in Illustration and Animation.This is CONFIA's fith conference after previous editions in Ofir, Porto, Braga and Barcelos.
It is intended to be a pivotal moment in the contemporary discussion of these areas, which have a long tradition and, at the same time, are pioneers 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 and the market as well as from the academic community.
All accepted full papers will be in the conference proceedings (with ISBN). You can find a pdf version of previous proceedings on this website.
