Preliminary Scientific Program
The scientific program of the conference will feature keynote sessions as well as paper presentation, interactive poster presentations and game presentations. A game design session will run throughout the entire conference. Former ISAGA summer school participants will have the opportunity to present their summer school work-group products in a special game presentation session. The last day of the conference, Friday the 6th of July 2012 a game corner will be organized that we hope will give participants the opportunity to present and play games, present and buy books and share ideas.
