On the 7th of December the Game Technology Competence Center (GTCC.NRW) and the Game Development Initiative Ruhr (GDI.Ruhr) invite you to the Game Innovation Show, which takes place at the Games Factory incubator at Mülheim an der Ruhr.
The exhibition will feature game projects, innovative technology and research results from scientists and students of the Unviersity of Duisburg-Essen presented with live tech demos and/or posters. Instead of listening to talks or presentations, the visitors are encouraged to move freely through the exhibition and get in touch with the scientists and students and to learn more about their projects in a face-to-face conversation.
The show will feature demos and posters within the areas of serious and health games, 3D gaming, innovative user interfaces, user participation tools, authoring systems for the interactive digital storytelling as well as studies about user experience and effects on gamers.
The Game Innovation Show aims at game developers looking for innovative ideas and new research findings or who are interested in collaborations with the University of Duisburg-Essen; as well as students and researchers within the area of games research.
The show takes place at the 7th of December from 11:00-15:00 at the Games Factory Ruhr, Kreuzstrasse 1-3, Mülheim a.d. Ruhr. Please register by e-mail: joerg.niesenhaus[at]games-ruhr.com
To keep you updated: We just extended the submission deadline of the Entertainment Interfaces track 2o11 in Chemnitz to the 3rd of April. If this is the first time you hear about the track, please feel free to check out my earlier blog post or the conference website.
This is a bit of advertisement for an interesting workshop in Aarhus this August about open design spaces and open innovation. In the last two workshops user innovation and participation in the area of games and interactive entertainment were one of the topics and I would like to see more entries in this field this year. Check out the call for papers and more information about the workshop at www.open-design-spaces.de .
The submission deadline is the 1st of June.
