Via: The International Society for Presence Research (ISPR) - Call: GameDays 2011 – Serious Games for Training, Education, Health and Sports

The GameDays have been established in 2005 as “Science meets Business” event in the field of Serious Games, taking place on annual basis in Darmstadt, Germany, aiming to provide an information and cooperation platform that brings together academia and industry and discussing latest trends, challenges and Serious Games potential.

Since 2010, the academic part has been emphasized resulting in a first Int’l workshop on Serious Games for Sports and Health with workshop proceedings and a special edition with selected papers in the Int’l Journal for Computer Science in Sport.

This year, the spectrum of topics is broadened and the different facets, methods, concepts and effects of game-based learning and training are covered as well.

Scientists and practitioners are cordially invited to present their latest research achievements and best-practice results and to submit full papers (e.g., surveys, new research approaches including related work, new concepts and at least first user studies), short papers (e.g. best-practice results or new ideas and concepts, not necessarily proven with an evaluation study), demo papers (description of games, products and prototypes) or poster presentations (new ideas, research approaches, etc.).
Following the tradition of the GameDays 'science meets business' event series, a fruitful exchange between science and industry is intended.
