Ink and Motion #1
International Conference on Animation and Comics 
23-25 MAR 2022

2nd Call for Abstracts: 17th January 2022
Full Papers: 21st March 2022

This conference aims at constituting a pioneering cross-disciplinary platform in Portugal for a fruitful dialogue between the fields of Animation and Comics. Responding to a growing artistic and academic interest in these two media and to the new conceptual, practical and theoretical challenges they pose, we feel the need to provide a space for academics and artists to share ideas about these subjects.
These are very dynamic, and often under recognized areas in the arts, even though they often underlie some of the most successful cinematic productions of our time. As such, they are moving more and more into the mainstream consciousness, and attracting extensive audience and critical acclaim.
