When & Where
MIT Game Lab
At the MIT Game Lab, we explore the potential of play in all these realms, particularly as it is amplified by new technologies. Combining the inventiveness of MIT engineering and computer science, the pedagogy of the MIT Education Arcade, and the research and development of the Singapore-MIT GAMBIT Game Lab, the newly configured MIT Game Lab brings together scholars, creators, and technologists to teach, conduct research, and develop new approaches for applied game design and construction. Our symposium will feature leading game researchers and industry professionals who will speak about their work and also discuss collaborations throughout games.
