Digra CFP! + website up!

Saturday, September 18, 2004

Yesterday DiGRA put up the Call for Papers for their next conference. The conference will be held next (late) Spring in Vancouver and is titled: Changing Views: Worlds in Play (see also another post of mine for the announcement).

Proposals can be submitted to the submission part of the site. The abstracts deadline is November 15th and the paper deadline is March 15th.

Seems like the conference site is also up (or is it a proposal? it's not hosted on the gamesconference site yet (the old one is gone by the way)...we'll see). It's a cool flash site and lots of info can be found there. They also seem to have a Game Fest, just like last year. Part of the conference will also be a game exhibition, hopefully somewhat better facilitated than last year, by the looks of it, it is... This time it will be an "Electronic Game Experience" and it will "include samples from all the key gaming genres and will concentrate on those "canonical" games that have attracted the most interest in the research community" and it features a timeline.

Hmm this proposal site looks with regards to content a lot like the one from last year (exhibition, gamefest, webcast, tournament, content from delegate packs etc.). The format was that good last year? Or maybe it still is a proposal...

Anyway, I hope I can go the conference again. And this time I mean to fully enjoy it. But... no paper proposal, hopefully graduated by that time and probably no job thus no money... I see my chances of going there shrinking by the minute... if anyone feels like putting money in my piggy bank... ;)
