Conference Aim

The aim of the 19th annual European GAME-ON® Conference (GAME-ON®'2018) on Simulation and AI in Computer Games, is to bring together researchers and games developers in order to exchange ideas on programming and programming techniques, 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 fuzzy sets, 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.

Companies will also have the opportunity to seek new talent at this unique event.

GAME-ON®'2018 consists of five core tracks, which cover, Gaming Methodology, Game Theory, Gamification, Artificial Intelligence and Simulation, while the other tracks cover peripheral technologies closely linked to games design, like 3-D scalability, facial and skeletal animation, 3D in-game animation etc, Mobile Gaming and Gaming Applications such as Serious games and Gamification in different sectors; Organizational issues when implementing games; Designing games for learning; Technologies, tools and platforms for developing games for learning; Games to teach arts, science, or business; Social and collaborative aspects of game-based learning; Multi-modalaspects of game-based learning (e.g. audio, augmented reality, virtual reality, etc); Motivational aspects of game-based learning.

This year's event will focus especially on Serious games and Gamification in different sectors; Organizational issues when implementing games; Designing games for learning; Technologies, tools and platforms for developing games for learning; Games to teach arts, science, or business; Social and collaborative aspects of game-based learning; Multi-modal
aspects of game-based learning (e.g. audio, augmented reality, virtual reality, etc); Motivational aspects of game-based learning.

KEYNOTES

The first Keynote for the event is:
Mike Cook, Senior Research Fellow, University of Falmouth,
Falmouth, United Kingdom and researcher/developer at Games by Angelina.
More speakers will be added shortly

Proceedings.

DIVERSE ACTIVITIES

For demonstrations, tutorials or video sessions, please contact EUROSIS.
Partners for projects session(s) will be organised by EUROSIS to
give potential project teams or individuals the opportunity to
present their research in order to link up with fellow researchers
for future research projects. Those wishing to participate in this
session need to send a proposal to EUROSIS.

EXHIBITION

A special exhibition will be held during the conference focused on
gaming applications. For more information please contact EUROSIS for
further details. Email: Philippe.Geril@eurosis.org
