SCOPE:
The EAI Games for Well-Being conference builds upon the increasing relevance of applied gaming approaches, gamification techniques and game-related technologies and devices for health and wellbeing management and recovering. Traditional approaches, albeit efficient, often falls short in engaging the individual and in fostering her interest in actually following a treatment or prevention. The adoption of gaming-related techniques in situations where health and well-being are involved can push individuals to engage willingly in activities to improve their lifestyle as well as in participating to prevention programs or treatments.
EAI GOWELL aims to bring together researchers, technologists and visionaries from Academia, research labs and industry to foster a lively discussion about the theory and practice of games as a way to improve health and well-being in tomorrow's society.
