PCG 2022 : The 13th Workshop on Procedural Content Generation
Call For Papers
Procedural content generation (PCG) attracts significant interest from both academia and the games industry. PCG has the potential of substantially reducing the authorial burden in game creation, improving the theoretical understanding of game design and realizing its automation, and enabling entirely new forms of games and playable experiences.
This workshop aims to advance knowledge in PCG by bringing together researchers and developers, and facilitating discussion. Towards enabling fruitful discussion and feedback for work in all stages of completion, we will host three modes of submission and delivery: the standard full paper, the short position paper, and the demo format accompanied by a short paper.
This workshop is collocated with the Foundations of Digital Games (FDG) conference, and will occur on a to be determined day between 2022-09-05 and 2022-09-08.
We welcome submissions in three formats: full papers, short position papers, and demos.
Papers should follow the FDG guidelines for submission and be submitted through EasyChair. See our website http://www.pcgworkshop.com for submission details.
Our review process will be double-blind. Papers that exceed the defined page limits for a given thread may be rejected without review.
Papers may cover a variety of topics related to procedural content generation, including but not limited to:
* Real-time, online, or offline algorithms for the procedural generation of games, levels, narrative, puzzles, environments, artwork, audio, sound effects, animation, characters, items, and other content.
* Techniques for procedural animation, procedural art, and other forms of visual content in games and other areas.
* Work on procedural audio, music, sound effects, and other forms of audible content in games and other areas.
* Procedural generation of narrative, stories, dialogues, conversations, flavor text, poetry, and natural language.
* Automated generation of game rules, variants, parameters, strategies, or game systems.
Tools, languages and systems for automated game design (e.g. prototyping, play testing, etc.)
* Automatic game balancing, game tuning, and difficulty adjustment through generated content.
* Tools and systems to aid players and game designers in creating and authoring their own content for games.
* Applications of PCG for digital, non-digital, physical, card, and tabletop games.
* Applications of procedural content generation in Virtual Reality (VR) and virtual worlds.
* Case studies of procedural generation as applied for use in the games industry.
* Challenges in mixed-mode systems combining human generated and procedurally generated content.
* Computational creativity and co-creation of games and game related content.
* Novel uses of AI and machine learning algorithms for generating and evaluating procedural content.
* Distributed and crowd-sourcing procedural content generation.
* Evaluation of player and/or designer experience in procedural content generation.
* Lessons from historical examples of PCG, including postmortems.
* Social and ethical impact of procedural content generation.
