Games, Life and Utopia Conference
Friday, November 11, 2011 at 2:00 PM (CET)
Games, Life and Utopia is a half-day event that is all about gamification, serious games, learning and play. It’s a conference for service and interaction designers, for social activists, for artists, for developers and geeks, and of course for gamers.
Gamification has garnered a lot of attention in recent years – both from academia and industry. At the event Games, Life and Utopia we will explore the potential and the boundaries of this emerging field. We will discuss the latest research results and discuss applications, not only in games, but also as tools for behavioral change. Our speakers offer a range of different perspectives on the topic - from hands-on experience with their own gamification products to a critical position based on psychological research. We will examine the operational mechanisms of games and their wondrous capabilities to produce experiences of hope, interest, enlightenment, and fascination.
We invite you to join us on Friday, November 11th, 2 pm, in Potsdam to think and talk about the nature of game playing and its meaning for people, institutions and society at large.
