Present CFP : 2021
The Advances in Computer Games conference (ACG 2021) will be held online this year over 23–25 November 2021. ACG is an internationally renowned conference that publishes computer-based studies of games. Its history goes back to the inaugural event held in Edinburgh in 1975, making this the longest ongoing game AI conference.
This year’s ACG will have a special track on The History of Computer Studies of Games. In addition to new work, we invite submissions that provide historical context or otherwise highlight key developments in game-playing programs and computer-based game studies over the decades.
Keynote speakers will include:
• David Silver (Google DeepMind)
• Michael Bowling (University of Alberta)
• Mark Lefler (Komodo, Zillions of Games)
Conference attendance to view all talks will be free.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• The current state of game-playing programs for classic and modern board games, card games, puzzles, virtual/casual/video games, etc.
• General game playing
• Artificial intelligence and machine learning for games
• The history of computers in game-based research
• New theoretical developments in game-related research
• New and enhanced algorithms for search and knowledge acquisition
• Automated game design and evaluation
• Social aspects of computer games
• Scientific contributions produced by the study of games
• Cognitive research of how (and why) humans play games and puzzles
• Capture and analysis of game data
Papers must be written in English and can be up to 10 pages in length (including references).
