CALL FOR POSTERS AND GAMES!

Submission deadline extended until December 1st

The CUNY Games Network of the City University of New York is excited to announce The CUNY Games Conference 5.0, to be held on January 18, 2019, at the Borough of Manhattan Community College in New York City.

This year, the CUNY Games Conference distills its best cutting-edge interactive presentations into a one-day event to promote and discuss game-based pedagogies in higher education, focusing particularly on non-digital learning activities that faculty can use in the classroom every day. The conference will include workshops lead by CUNY Games Organizers on how to modify existing games for the classroom, how to incorporate elements of play into simulations and critical thinking activities, as well as poster sessions, playtesting, and game play. For the digitally minded, we will also offer a workshop in creating computer games in Unity.

We are calling all faculty and graduate students who play or design games/playful interactive activities for your classes to participate in one of our game demo and poster sessions! (Both CUNY and non-CUNY participation is welcome.)

Please note that this is a new format, in which we call for game demos and posters, but not oral presentations.

Arcade game demos and posters

We encourage everyone to consider bringing something to showcase at our arcade this year. The arcade area will feature posters and games (finished or in progress), gamecasting videos, and more. We also especially encourage participation by undergraduate researchers.

Your proposal must include: session format; contact information for the corresponding presenter; name, affiliation, and email address for each additional presenter; title, 500-word abstract (including a 250-word paragraph on connections to higher education); keywords selected from a list on the submission form; and special requests (e.g., scheduling or equipment needs). Please proofread and edit your proposal before submission. Accepted proposals will be published in our conference proceedings.
