Changing Views: Worlds in Play

by Andrew Stern · , 3:09 pm

The second DiGRA conference will be held at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver in one year’s time, from June 17 to 20, 2005. The conference is titled “Changing Views: Worlds in Play”. An excerpt from the press release:

The goal of this conference is to facilitate a richer and more comprehensive grasp of the present and future capabilities and applications of digital games by inviting and supporting work which demonstrates the values, means and ends of ‘changing views’ in and on digital games and games research. This work necessarily embraces interdisciplinarity and internationalism, and is, in sum, work which bridges between and across worlds in play.

We had a great time at the first DiGRA conference last November in Utrecht, called LevelUp, and expect Changing Views to be well worth the trip.

CFP and more info are to appear soon on the DiGRA site.

Update: Here’s the conference site.
