  • Case Studies in Advanced Games and Entertainment Interaction
  • Integrating Emotion in Games and Entertainment
  • Natural User Interfaces

Authors are asked to submit position papers of 4-6 pages on the above and related topics. Papers will be selected for the relevance and timeliness. Papers should be in the ACM Extended Abstracts format. Accepted authors must commit to attending the workshop. The workshop will focus around initial presentation of position papers before moving on to discussion of wider issues to establish the future research direction of the area. Accepted papers will be archived in the ACM Digital Library, and published in the workshop proceedings.
