    These are the proceedings containing the short and poster papers of CASA 2009, the twenty second international conference on Computer Animation and Social Agents. CASA 2009 was organized in Amsterdam, the Netherlands from the 17th to the 19th of June 2009. CASA is organized under the auspices of the Computer Graphics Society (CGS) and is the premier academic conference in the field of computer animation and behavior simulation of social agents. CASA was founded in 1988. Over the last years the conference has been organized in Philadelphia (1998, 2000), Seoul (2001, 2008), Geneva (2002, 2004, 2006), New Jersey (2003), Hong Kong (2005), and Hasselt (2007). In 2009 the conference was held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The organization was done by the Human Media Interaction (HMI) research group of the University of Twente, the Netherlands. The CASA 2009 edition received 123 submissions. Of these submissions 35 full papers have been chosen to appear in revised form in a special issue of the Wiley InterScience online journal Computer Animation and Virtual Worlds. From the remaining submissions 16 short, 10 poster and 3 GATE-session-abstracts papers have been selected for these proceedings. They also contain the list of accepted full papers and the abstracts of the two invited talks by Volker Blanz of the University of Siegen in Germany and Franck Multon of the University of Rennes in France. We thank all the authors for having submitted their work to this conference and the members of the international program committee and the additional external reviewers for their time and efforts invested in the reviewing process. We would like to thank the editors of Wiley for their support to publishing the selected full papers in a very short time. A particular word of thanks goes to the HMI support team, that is, to Lynn Packwood, Charlotte Byron and Alice Vissers for their support in organizing the conference and taking care of financial and organizational matters. CASA 2009 has been sponsored by the innovation agency IOP-MMI of SenterNovem (Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs), the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) and the GATE (Game research for Training and Entertainment) project.
