DiGRA 2007 Calls for Papers

The Digital Games Research Association International Conference (DiGRA 2007) in Tokyo has announced its call for papers on "Situated Play," hoping to shed light on various kinds of situatedness of games.
Papers and panel proposals are invited for the third Digital Games Research Association International Conference (DiGRA 2007) in Tokyo. The theme of this conference is "Situated Play." Its goal is to shed light on various kinds of situatedness of games. In particular, the conference aims to create a bridge between professionally and geographically diverse scholars and practitioners. We therefore welcome panel proposals and papers that tackle various facets regarding the situatedness of digital games and attempt to combine a range of approaches in innovative ways. The deadline for papers and panel proposals is February 14, 2007. The selection will be based on full papers and panel proposals. The time allotted to one paper is 30 minutes, and the submitted papers should be between 2500 to 6000 words and an abstract must be attached. A panel session will have two hours, and a panel proposal should be up to 800 words in addition to all the full papers in the panel. Authors and organizers of panels will be requested to specify a relevant thematic focus and their relevant disciplinary backgrounds. Submission will be accepted by an online review system. Based on the abstracts and the specified disciplinary backgrounds, the Review Committee Chair Douglas Thomas will assign papers and panel proposals to a Review Committee member, who will assign three or more reviewers to the paper. Based on the double-blind evaluation of the reviewers and taking the relevance of the papers to the conference theme into consideration, the Program Committee will select approximately 50 papers. In addition to full papers, there will be lightening sessions, student round tables, and poster sessions. A call for papers for these kinds of sessions will be announced later. The deadline of submissions for these sessions is planned to be in May. Further details of the conference will be announced on the conference DiGRA 2007 website.
