The fourth annual Games, Learning & Society Conference is to be held July 10-11, 2008 in Madison, Wisconsin. Sponsored by the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Education and the Academic ADL Co-Lab, the GLS Conference intends to “foster substantive discussion and collaboration among academics, designers, and educators interested in how game technologies (commercial games and others) can enhance learning, culture, and education.” Speakers, discussion groups, and interactive workshops are to focus on game design, game culture, and games’ potential for learning. The two-day conference is to be held at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Monona Terrace Convention Center, and the conference includes hands-on workshops designed by and for videogame researchers and designers; a two-day lounge featuring “Chat 'n' Frag sessions” with scholars and designers; fireside chats with industry leaders and special guests; a game room; webcasts of selected conference sessions; and a Thursday night dinner party. The conference is also open to proposals for presentations, discussions, symposia, workshops, debates, respondents, and exhibits on topics and issues related to conference themes. Complete submission guidelines are listed inside the submissions site at http://glsconference.org. Submissions are due online by March 31, 2008.
