2017 Video Gala submissions IMPORTANT DATES  Submission Deadline:  August 21, 2017  Author Notification:  August 22, 2017  Final Video:  August 26, 2016  The GALA, “Gathering of Animated Lifelike Agents,” is an annual festival to showcase  the latest animated lifelike agents created by university students, academic and/or  industrial research groups. The goals of the GALA are manifold:  To provide a forum to present and evaluate the state-of-the-art in the technology of  virtual humans and innovative applications;  To disseminate research, by establishing an ever evolving GALA Gallery (a repository at  a permanent web location) of virtual humans for study and re-use;  To stimulate students to work on virtual humans. An international jury will select entries for the GALA Gallery. The presentation of the best  entries and announcement of the awards will take place at the GALA Final, which is  coupled with a prestigious conference each year. This year the GALA Final will take  place at the 17th International Conference on Intelligent Virtual Agents – IVA 2017, 27-30  August 2017, in Stockhom, Sweden.  SUBMISSION DETAILS The GALA event is primarily a video showcase of “short” projects involving animated  lifelike agents (under one of the topics of the main conference). The main submission is  a video, with an optional short paper. It is open to students and industry as well as  academic institutions. Researchers are also encouraged to submit demos, which will  feature particular applications of Intelligent Virtual Agents, as well as tools for their  development. The submission may include a short paper explaining the main  contributions of the demo, and should include a small video illustrating the demo to be  conducted at IVA.  Submit a one page PDF with a description of the video and details of the encoding,  author names, affiliations, and a download link.  The international jury will invite the  selected entries to be demonstrated at the GALA Final in public, as well as a high quality  version of the video for the GALA presentation.  PDF papers and links to videos should be sent to GALA chair, Jens Edlund,  edlund@speech.kth.se The GALA event will host a Jury Award as well as an Audience Award.  You are strongly encouraged to submit a GALA video even if you have already submitted  a paper or poster with similar content.
