IGBLThis year, iGBL will be hosted by Institute of Art, Design & Technology (IADT) in Dun Laoghaire on Thursday 4th June & Friday 5th June 2015. The iGBL2015 will present an energetic and compelling programme with a focus on new developments in games, game-based learning and serious games. The theme for iGBL2015 is “Boosting GBL through Creativity” with a focus on the creative influences that enrich the gamers’ experience.

To complement this wider perspective, this conference is expanding beyond the use of games and gamification to embrace the broader gaming environment. This expanded theme incorporates the creative influences associated with gaming and learning, such as game design elements, narrative, animation, user interface, characters, etc. These creative aspects of the gamers’ experience contribute significantly to the appeal and effectiveness of game-based learning.

Whether you plan on attending and or presenting, the call for submissions is open until 10th April 2015 and a wide range of contributions are welcome on the theme of games and learning, including Presentations, Student Presentations, Posters, Workshops.
