full name / name of organization:
Dr. Rob Fisher/ Inter-Disciplinary.Net
6th Global Conference
Thursday 17th July – Saturday 19th July 2014
Call for Presentations:
Proposals, presentations, workshops and reports are invited on any of the following themes:
1. Videogames and Gaming
2. Videogame Cultures
3. Games and Society
4. Immersion and Embodiment
5. Games with Meaning?
6. Works in Progress
The Steering Group particularly welcomes the submission of pre-formed panel proposals. Proposals will also be considered on any related theme. A presentation with a quick demo of the game and workshop proposals are strongly encouraged. We might offer 2 hour slot for 1-3 intensive workshops on design methodologies and media comparative sessions. Delegates presenting in the frame of workshops only are eligible for publishing in a special track of Videogames 6 ebook on methodologies.
In order to support and encourage inter-disciplinarity engagement, it is our intention to create the possibility of starting dialogues between the parallel events running during this conference. Delegates are welcome to attend up to two sessions in each of the concurrent conferences. We also propose to produce cross-over sessions between these groups – and we welcome proposals which deal with the relationship between Videogame Cultures and Childhood and Deception.
What to Send
a) author(s), b) affiliation as you would like it to appear in programme, c) email address, d) title of proposal, e) body of proposal, f) up to 10 keywords.
Please use plain text (Times Roman 12) and abstain from using footnotes and any special formatting, characters or emphasis (such as bold, italics or underline). We acknowledge receipt and answer to all paper proposals submitted. If you do not receive a reply from us in a week you should assume we did not receive your proposal; it might be lost in cyberspace! We suggest, then, to look for an alternative electronic route or resend.
Joint Organising Chairs:
