Welcome to SGDA 2012
It is our pleasure to announce that the third International Conference on Serious Games Development and Applications will held in Bremen on September 26-27, 2012 (http://www.sgda2012.eu/) as a satellite conference to IFIP-ICEC2012. All participants will have access to both conferences.
SGDA 2012 appears in the sequence of the success of the First International Workshop on Serious Games Development and Application at Derby in 2010 (its Proceedings were published as a Special Issue of the Elsevier journal Entertainment Computing), and the Second International Conference on Serious Games Development and Applications, Lisbon in 2011 (its Proceedings were published as Springer LNCS 6944).
The conference aims at collecting and disseminating knowledge on serious games technologies, design and development; to provide game designers and interdisciplinary communities with a peer-reviewed forum to discuss the state-of-the-art in serious games research, their ideas and theories, and innovative applications of serious games; to explain cultural, social and scientific phenomena by means of serious games; to concentrate on the interaction between theory and application; to develop new methodologies in various application domains using games technologies; and to explore perspectives of future developments and innovative applications relevant to serious games and related areas. The strong focus of the conference on the application of serious games by organizations implies the strong involvement of industry through the fostering of an environment where all interested stakeholders share knowledge and network with one another.
