Call: Foundations of Digital Games (FDG) 2014

FDG 2014, the 9th International Conference on the Foundations of Digital Games, is a focal point for academic efforts in all areas of research and education involving game studies, game technologies, gameplay, and game design.The goal of the conference is the advancement of the study of digital games, including new game technologies, capabilities, designs, applications, educational uses, and modes of play. Since its founding 9 years ago, FDG has become a premier venue for the discussion and dissemination of games research. FDG grew out of a series of games research gatherings organized by Microsoft on cruise ships, which were excellent venues for having intensive discussions with research colleagues in an enjoyable setting. This year we’re bringing FDG back to the cruise ship: it will be held April 3-7, 2014, on the Royal Caribbean’s Liberty of the Seas, sailing from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA, to Cozumel Mexico.

FDG 2014 invites paper, panel, poster, demo, doctoral consortium, and workshop submissions in all research areas related to games.
