Nordic DiGRA + GGC = true

Filed under: Blog in February 7, 2014, by Ulf Benjaminsson. Print This

The Digital Games Research Association is the premiere international association for academics and professionals who research digital games and associated phenomena.

This year, Nordic DiGRA is teaming up with Gotland Game Conference on the paradise island in the baltic sea. Running along side GGC, we will be showcasing papers on the subject of Gamification and how game systems are becoming more pervasive in every day life.

Innovation and transformation at GGC, Gamification and application of design at DiGRA Nordic.

Call For Papers
We are looking for papers for presentation at DiGRA.

Game systems are being used in many areas outside of what’s thought of as Games – from Air Miles and Supermarket Loyalty Schemes, Twitter and FourSquare, to Kahn Academy and Duolingo. But we’re also seeing game based learning, research (puzzles for science!) and, in a limited way, even in the last US Election.

We are inviting submissions for full papers and workshops. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • gamification
  • games in society
  • games and learning
  • games as propaganda
  • persuasive games
  • games in teaching
  • critical stances to gamification and game-based learning

Conference Location
The conference will be held at Uppsala University campus Gotland parallel with the Gotland Game Conference 2014. Map and information here.
