CONFERENCE AIM

The aim of the 16th annual European GAMEON® Conference (GAMEON®’2015) on Simulation and AI in Computer Games, is to bring together researchers and games people in order to exchange ideas on programming and programming techniques, which will be beneficial to the gaming industry and academia. Secondly it aims to steer young people into this industry by providing how-to tutorials and giving them the opportunity to show their ideas and demos to the gaming industry. The conference will concentrate mostly on the programming of games, with special emphasis on simulation, AI and fuzzy sets, and physics related computer graphics. Next to that, all of this will be fused in the topic of computer game design in stand-alone and networked games. Software providers will be able to show their latest packages and give hand-on tutorials for the participants.

Companies will also have the opportunity to seek new talent at this unique event.

CONFERENCE VISIT

A visit to the Medialab of the Hogeschool van Amsterdam is envisaged.

GAMEON’2015 consists of four core tracks, which cover, Gaming Methodology and Theory, Artificial Intelligence and Simulation, while the other tracks cover peripheral technologies closely linked to games design, like 3-D scalability, facial and skeletal animation, 3D in-game animation etc, Mobile Gaming and Gaming Applications…

All submissions will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the International Program Committee. Accepted papers will be published in the conference Proceedings (both print and electronic format), that will be copyrighted and widely disseminated.

Contributions to the technical program are solicited in the following general areas;

WORKSHOPS

Workshops on gaming, AI, simulation or software topics can be proposed by June 20th, 2015.

POSTER SESSION

The poster session only features work in progress. Next to the actual poster presentation, these submissions also feature as short papers in the Proceedings.

STUDENTS SESSION

This session is for students who want to present their work in progress or part of their doctoral thesis as a paper. Student papers are denoted by the fact that only the name of the student appears on the paper as an author. They are published as short papers in the Proceedings.

DIVERSE ACTIVITIES

For demonstrations, tutorials or video sessions, please contact EUROSIS. Partners for projects session(s) will be organised by EUROSIS to give potential project teams or individuals the opportunity to present their research in order to link up with fellow researchers for future research projects. Those wishing to participate in this session need to send a proposal to EUROSIS.

EXHIBITION

A special exhibition will be held during the conference focused on gaming applications. For more information please contact EUROSIS for further details. Email: philippe.geril@eurosis.org
