AIM AND TOPICS

Games have become an important part of our everyday life, not only as a means of entertainment, but also by providing a unique venue for recreation, training, health intervention and artistic creation.

The aim of the 7th annual North American Game-On Conference (GameOn’NA 2012) is to bring together academics, researchers and commercial game developers from North America and around the world to exchange ideas and present new advances in the field of digital gaming research. This conference also aims to enhance research contacts in the field of gaming research between researchers from North American and from other parts of the world.

The design and development of games involve many disciplines. GameOn’NA focuses broadly on the AI, Simulation, psychological and social aspects of digital games.

The intent of the GameOn’NA 2012 event is to expose the research qualities of the efforts currently being studied and employed in the gaming community: projects in games research fields, students’ game-related research work, commercial game development and design including tools, etc.

Topics covered will include, but not limited to:

  • Games Development Methodology
  • Game AI
  • Learning and Adaptation
  • Intelligent Agents
  • Collaboration & Multi-agent Systems
  • Opponent Modelling
  • Physics and Simulation/Graphical Simulation
