More conferences and cfp's

Wednesday, February 09, 2005

Oh yes, more conferences coming up.

The second Women in Games conference will be held at University of Abertay Dundee from 8 till 10th of August. The Call for Papers can be found here. The deadline for submitting abstracts is March 21. Would love to go there, couldn't make it last year, maybe this year I will.

Another conference is the symposium Playful Subjects: technology, agency and computer games. The symposium is organised by The Play Research Group in the School of Cultural Studies at the University of the West of England and will be held Friday 13th and Saturday 14th May. One of the questions: "How can we theorise the intimate relationships between the human, the textual, the ludic, and the technological in the act of gameplay?"
This is actually exactly what I am doing at the moment and where I am interested in. Interesting speakers as well such as Barry Atkins, Helen Kennedy, Tanja Krzywinska and more. Artist John Paul Bichard will be there as well and will present his work. He does some interesting work. He also presented one of his works at Level Up in 2003.
I really should try to go to this symposium, think that there would be a lot of interesting research for my own interests. Don't think I will be able to submit something myself. I should first focus on finishing my thesis.
There is still some space open for more presentations. A 250 words abstract should be sent by March 15th.

Then there is a call for papers for a special session of Computer Games for Learning and Teaching at the ICET 2005 in Calgary, Canada, July 4-6. The cfp can be found here. Deadline is March 15.

Think that are enough conferences and cfp's for now... (does it ever end? :D)
