Welcome to GameDays 2011

2nd International Conference on Serious Gaming and 7th Science meets Business Congress

darmstadtium conference center

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. The principle aim is to bring together academia and industry and to discuss the current trends, grand challenges and potentials of Serious Games for different application domains. 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. The GameDays 2011 take place in the context of the "Hessen congress" (IT congress of the state of Hesse) at the congress center www.darmstadtium.de.

Scientists, developers 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.).
