Now you can submit a contribution to the GALA Conference 2016, which will take place in Utrecht (the Netherlands) on December 5-7, 2016.

The Games and Learning Alliance conference (GALA 2016) is an international conference dedicated to the science and application of serious games. The conference aims at bringing together researchers, developers, practitioners and stakeholders. The goal is to share the state of the art of research and market, analyzing the most significant trends and discussing visions on the future of serious games.

The conference also includes the GALA conf Serious Games Awards and demo and tutorial sessions (further info soon on the website).

The conference is organized by the Serious Games Society. We are building a scientific community at international level 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.

The GALA Conference 2016 proceedings will be published on Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) and the best papers in a special issue of the International Journal of Serious Games, as in the previous years.

We are seeking original contributions that advance the state of the art in the technologies and knowledge available to support development and deployment of serious games. Experimental studies are strongly encouraged.
