The objective of GALA Conf is to provide an international forum for the dissemination and exchange of scientific information on theoretical, technical, and applied areas of serious games. These objectives are accomplished through different means: presentation sessions, keynote speeches, a poster session, an exhibition, and a game competition.
GALA Conference 2022 (11th edition) is an event organized by the Serious Games Society in collaboration with Tampere University (Faculty of Education and Culture). 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.
Tampere University is one of the most multidisciplinary universities in Finland. Tampere University is a community of 21,000 students and close to 4,000 staff members. “Games as a platform to tackle grand challenges” is one of the profiling areas at Tampere University.
