Call For Papers


Leiden University, Leiden, the Netherlands
1-3 July 2015 (precise dates to be confirmed)

Aske Plaat, Jaap van den Herik, Walter Kosters (editors)

Leiden, the Netherlands

The fourteenth conference on Advances in Computer Games (ACG2015) will be held in Leiden, the Netherlands, in conjunction with the 21th World Computer Chess Championship and the 18th Computer Olympiad. We expect that the conference commences on July 1 at 08.30-12.30h and will take place on three consecutive days. The WCCC and the CO will likely take place from June 30 to July 8, also at Leiden University. Dates will be confirmed in early January 2015.
The conference aims in the first place at providing an international forum for computer-games researchers presenting new results on ongoing work. The recent successes of the CG and the ACG conferences have encouraged the organizers to widen their scope and therefore we encourage contributions on virtual and video games and modern board games. So, we invite contributors to submit papers on all aspects of research related to computers and games. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to: (1) the current state of game-playing programs for classic and modern board and card games, (2) the current state of virtual, casual and video games, (3) new theoretical developments in game-related research, and (4) general scientific contributions produced by the study of games. Also researchers on topics such as (5) social aspects of computer games, (6) cognitive research of how humans play games, (7) capture and analysis of game data, and (8) issues related to networked games are invited to submit their contributions.
