The Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS) invites submissions to the Games for Impact minitrack, that is serving under the Software Technology track.

Games for Impact minitrack intends to draw attention to the use of games and game technology for special purposes and positive outcomes where the created experience reaches beyond entertainment. Recognising that games are a powerful vehicle to make emerging technologies accessible to society, this mini track creates a space to explore the many factors that influence the design, development, application, adoption, use, and impact of games and game technology.

The exploration of Games for Impact minitrack falls under the umbrella of the recent games research fields such as games for health/rehabilitation/therapy, games for learning, games for empathy, games for social innovation, games for change, and citizen science games. Potential subtopics or areas including but not limited to the following are listed below:
- Case studies on the design, development, use, analysis or evaluation of games for special purposes
- The role and application of games, game technology, and game design in creating, disseminating, and evaluating social innovation
- The application and impact of games for training, learning, and personal development (habit building, empathy, social skills, etc.)
- Evaluation approaches, criticality, quality measures, and ethics of using and adapting games, game technology, and game design in other fields such as health, rehabilitation, education, social innovation, citizen science
- Use of novel interaction modalities, platforms and/or controllers, IoT, VR-AR-MR, best practices and design guidelines for games for impact
- Analysis for socio-cultural context of games for impact
