Games and Learning Alliance Conference

You are cordially invited to participate in the 10th Games and Learning Alliance Conference (GALA 2021). GALA 2021 is an international conference dedicated to the science and application of serious games, which will be organised on 1-3 December 2021 in La Spezia (Italy).

The conference objective is to provide an international forum for the dissemination and exchange of scientific information on theoretical, generic, and applied areas of serious games. These objectives will be accomplished through different means: keynote presentations, presentation sessions, a poster session, tutorials, an exhibition and a competition.

COVID-19: In the light of the current uncertainty with respect to the pandemic, GALA 2021 organising committee are monitoring periodically the official health and safety guidelines, as well as travel restrictions. We are currently planning to run the conference primarily as a regular conference with physical attendance, offering ways for virtual/hybrid participation for those participants who will not travel. If circumstances might prevent a safe physical attendance, the conference will take place virtually over the same dates as originally scheduled.

GALA 2021 is an event organized by the Serious Games Society in collaboration with the NATO Science and Technology Organisation – Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation. The Serious Games Society is building an international scientific community for shaping future research in the field. This community represents a significant blend of industrial and academic professionals committed to the study, development and deployment of serious games as useful and effective tools to support better teaching, learning, training and assessment.
