Microsoft Games In Education Conference Calls For Submissions

The Third Annual Microsoft Academic Days Conference on Game Development in Computer Science Education, which takes place February 28-March 3, 2008 on board the Celebrity Century cruise ship departing from Miami, Florida, has called for submissions.
The Third Annual Microsoft Academic Days Conference on Game Development in Computer Science Education (GDCSE ’08) is a focal point for academic efforts using computer and console games within the Computer Science curriculum. Jointly sponsored by Microsoft Research and Electronic Arts, the conference is targeted at both computer science educators and researchers, promoting new efforts in the creation and management of courses and curriculum using game development. The conference, now in its third year, will be held aboard the Celebrity Century cruise ship, departing from and returning to Miami, Florida with port calls in Key West and Cozumel, Mexico. GDCSE’08 will include talks by invited speakers, presentation of peer-reviewed papers, hands-on tutorials and birds-of-a-feather meetings focusing on a range of topics related to the use of games in computer science education. Microsoft invites researchers and educators to share insights and cutting-edge results relating to the use of games and game technologies in both formal and informal educational contexts. Submissions are due by October 15, 2007, and more details can be found at the GDCSE ’08 website.
