Demos

Demonstrations play an important part at the GALA conference 2018. They are forums for showcasing and disseminating results relating to the design, development, use and evaluation of Serious Games. They offer conference participants  possibilities to explore, test and discuss different Serious Games of a specific domain or on a specific topic. They are thus not necessarily scientifically/academically driven and are expected to involve and attract industry partners at least partly.

There are no cost related to the booth.

The main demonstration slot will be on Thursday, Dec. 6, in the afternoon. This will be a part of the public event in order to reach a larger audience including schools interested in using games, but not participating in the conference).

In order to also support a more interactive discussion on game applications presented in the scientific tracks, there will also be an opportunity for the conference to show games  during the Coffee and Lunch breaks on December 5 and 7.

The conference organizers are looking for proposals for demonstration of gamification and serious games, fitting the aims and tracks of the conference (see Aims and Scope & Call for Papers).

A proposal should comprise the following:

  • names, affiliations and e-mail addresses of the one submitter;
  • name of the game, genre, target group and producer. In case non-commercial, also project information.
  • an outline of what Serious Games will be demonstrated, what format(s) (VR/AR/mobile/PC etc.) of demonstration will be used any requirements in terms of room capacity, power outlets, (internet) network availability (wired or wireless), beamer/screens etc.

Deadline for proposals is October, 10.

If you have any questions, please contact the Demo chair
