GALA conference 2015

The Games and Learning Alliance conference (GALA 2015) is an international conference dedicated to the science and application of serious games.

Starts: December 09, 2015 at 09:00

Ends: December 11, 2015 at 17:00

Venue: Rome

Organiser: Serious Games Society

The conference is an international event dedicated to the science and application of serious games. The conference aims at bringing together researchers, developers, practitioners and stakeholders. The goal is to share the state of the art of research and market, analyzing the most significant trends and discussing visions on the future of serious games.

The conference will feature also an exhibition and the GALA Conf SG Awards.

The exhibition is organized in two parts. One dedicated to the commercial world of SG and one to the non-commercial one. The latter aims at spotting, sustaining and creating relationships with people and small companies (students of any level, professionals or amateur developers, small studios, etc.) that are interested in presenting new prototypes and products.

The GALA Conf SG Awards are devoted to honor the best serious games designed by non-commercial producers. This initiative will encourage students, PhDs, new comers of serious games in presenting their product and make the SGs market growing.

We will publish soon more info on the conference website www.galaconf.org

The conference is organized by the Serious Games Society (www.seriousgamessociety.org), which is building a scientific community at international level for shaping future research in the field. This community represents a significant blend of industrial and academic professionals committed to the study, development and deployment of serious games as really useful and effective tools to support better teaching, learning, training and assessment.

We are seeking original contributions that advance the state of the art in the technologies and knowledge available to support development and deployment of serious games. Experimental studies are strongly encouraged. See an extensive list of possible topics on our conference website:www.galaconf.org/2015/index.php/call-for-paper
