Georgia Tech has announced their annual Living Game Worlds III, this year themed “PLAYING WITH REALITY” @ 29th March 2007. It’s presented by the GVU Center and the Graduate Program in Digital Media in the School of Literature, Communication and Culture, with Katy Salen and Tracy Fullerton keynoting.

Living Game Worlds III: PLAYING WITH REALITY is an event that brings together international scholars, activists and game developers for a day-long discussion on nonfiction and documentary games. Variously referred as “serious games,” “games for change,” “persuasive games,” “newsgaming,” and sometimes educational games, participants will explore special challenges and opportunities presented by games that tackle real world topics. Last year the event utterly rocked.

March 29, 2007, 8am-8pm
Georgia Tech/Technology Square Research Building, Atlanta, Georgia
Discounts for registration before March 10.
