AIM OF GAMEON-ASIA'2013

The aim of the 5th annual Asian GAME-ON Conference (GAME-ON ASIA'2013) on Simulation and AI in Computer Games, is to bring together researchers and games people from ASIA and the rest of the world, in order to exchange ideas on feasible techniques and research findings, which will be beneficial to the gaming industry and academia. Secondly it aims to steer young people into this industry by providing how-to tutorials and giving them the opportunity to show their ideas and demos to the gaming industry. The conference will concentrate mostly on the programming of games, with special emphasis on simulation, AI and computational intelligence, and physics related computer graphics. Next to that, all of this will be fused in the topic of computer game design in stand-alone and networked games. Software providers will be able to show their latest packages and give hand-on tutorials for the participants.

All submissions will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the International Program Committee. Accepted papers will be published in the conference Proceedings (both print and electronic format), that will be copyrighted and widely disseminated. All talks and tutorials, must be accompanied by a paper of between three to eight Proceedings pages.

Contributions to the technical program are solicited in the following general areas;

Perceptual User Interfaces for Games

Humans communicate using speech, gesture, and body motion, yet today's computers do not use this valuable information. Instead, computers force users to sit at a typewriter keyboard, stare at a TV-like display, and learn an endless set of arcane commands -- often leading to frustration, inefficiencies, and disuse.

The idea behind PUI is that a computer system "hears" users' voice commands and "sees" their gestures and body positions. Interactions are natural, more like human-to-human interactions. PUI use here machine perception to allow users to interact with computergames and within computer gaming environments. By reading gestures, motions and speech we should be able to in a much more natural way interact with the games.

But sensor systems deliver only raw position and pose information. For interface use, these are not the desired quantities we need to understand the abstractions appropriate for a natural interface and consider how the various perceptual input degrees of freedom should relate to available commands and options.
