2009 Serious Games Summit Announces Call For Submissions
Think Services announced a call for submissions for next year's Serious Games Summit, due to take place at GDC 09 from March 23-24, asking for abstracts on possible demonstrations, posters, 45-minute lectures, 60-minute panels, and 30-minute case studies
Think Services, organizer of the Game Developers Conference (GDC) (and also owner of Gamasutra), announced a call for submissions for next year's Serious Games Summit event, asking for abstracts on possible demonstrations, posters, 45-minute lectures, 60-minute panels, and 30-minute case studies for the event.
The Serious Games Summit focuses on games created for purposes other than pure entertainment, such as game development in the areas of education, advertising, government, health, military, science, and corporate training.
Interested speakers and presenters should note that the deadline for these abstracts to be submitted is September 24, 2008. The advisory board reviewing submitted proposals will look for submissions that follow the Serious Games Summit's focus this year -- success points in the serious games field.
The advisory board is interested in discussions that break through the emerging serious games space to highlight research, products, and ideas that represent the next level of achievement for the field.
This year's Serious Games Summit will take place during the first two days of Game Developers Conference 2009, which will run from March 23 to 27 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California.
