=============================

Recent years have seen a rapid proliferation of serious games as they provide the context in which participants can dunk and experience a simulated environment as real, as they can achieve rich and complex content-based interaction. Serious games including simulations and immersive environments, have the potential to be an important teaching tool because they involve learners in interactive, engaging and immersive activities that allow them to practice and improve technical, practical and creative skills. To achieve this serious games use advanced interfaces close to game quality, creativity, and advanced technology to meet training objectives, but these principles alone will not guarantee that the intended learning occurs. To be an effective educational tool, serious games must couple advanced technological interventions with sound cognitive, learning, and pedagogical principles into their design and structure.

This special session aims to explore how cognitive principles can be applied to improve the training effectiveness in serious games. Papers that explore the design and development of serious games that automatically process and manage effectively the content and context in which learning takes place to support formal and informal learning both for teacher’s training and student’s learning would be of special research interest. Therefore, we invite practitioners and researchers alike to submit papers under the following topics.

This special track welcomes submissions on (but not limited to) the following topics:

* Serious games[1] in training and education
* Natural Language and serious games (with focus in training and education)
* AI in serious games for training/education
* Context aware (e.g., location, user performance, preferences, state of the game, other) serious games
* Cognitive and pedagogical principles / issues / aspects of serious games
* Empathy and serious games / educational games
* User centred serious game design
* Serious game analytics
* New developments and trends in context aware serious games in training and education
* Gamified education/training applications
