Comics Arts Conference - SDCC

CONTENT: The Comics Arts Conference welcomes submissions focused on aspects of sequential art: graphic storytelling in the form of comic strips, comic books, and graphic novels. We regret we are unable to accept submissions concentrating primarily on other media or popular culture in general.

EQUIPMENT: The CAC provides a projector with a DVD player and a laptop computer connection (VGA). There will also be a laptop on site for your convenience with PowerPoint, Keynote, and QuickTime. We can thus accommodate DVDs, CDs, laptops, and flash drives. If your laptop is a Mac, please bring your own video adapter.

REGISTRATION: If your paper is accepted, do not pay for Comic-Con registration. (If you have already paid, we may be able to get that payment refunded to you.) CAC presenters attend Comic-Con with professional passes, with no registration fee for Comic-Con or CAC.

GUEST: You may bring ONE guest who can also attend with free registration. After submissions are accepted, we will then ask for your guest information. A guest pass may not be sold or otherwise transferred to anyone other than the individual whose name appears on it.

HOTEL: San Diego hotel rooms have been filling faster and faster. You should probably reserve your room (preferably something you can cancel without penalty if necessary) as early as possible, long before we finalize our schedule and send panel acceptance/rejection notifications.

Please be aware that this SurveyMonkey system does not automatically generate confirmation emails, but we have never known it to fail to store a submission.

STRICT DEADLINE: ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST BE RECEIVED BY THE DEADLINE OR THEY WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED, NO MATTER WHO THEY’RE FROM.

If you would also like to submit a panel as a set of individual presentations (e.g., a set of three presentations that go together, each about 15 minutes long) that could each be considered for CAC even if the rest of the panel is rejected, please enter each presentation into this website separately AND submit the panel itself. If this submission is one of the individual presentations within such a panel, identify your larger panel's HERE so we know what goes with what. Otherwise, leave this blank.
