3rd Annual International GamiFIN conference, April 8-10, 2019, Sokos
Hotel, Levi, Lapland, Finland!

Welcome to the gathering of international gamification research
community in the Finnish Lapland, Levi. Levi is a ski resort located in
Finnish Lapland, above the Arctic Circle and features incredible Finnish
scenery, nature and winter activities. This is the first time the event
will be organised in this winter wonderland and we hope all of our
guests take the time to enjoy the surroundings and activities provided

GamiFIN is a leading international conference for gamification research.
The conference is chaired by the Professor of Gamification Juho Hamari
and gamification scholar Jonna Koivisto. The conference is organized by
the Gamification Group and past keynotes have included notable scholars
from the field of Gamification such as Sebastian Deterding, Richard

GamiFIN 2019 conference welcomes 1) paper, 2) poster, and 3) doctoral
consortium paper submissions.

The GamiFIN conference will offer an entry to the Gamification
Publication Track (http://gamifinconference.com/gamification-track/).
The gamification publication track is a one of a kind, “gamified” way to
develop your research paper through GamiFIN conference, HICSS
Gamification Track and toward the eventual publication in an associated
journal issue. The aim of the gamification publication track is to
increase the predictability and rigorousness of the peer-review and
publication processes by providing a concise review continuum and
discussion with peers.

– Full papers submitted to GamiFIN 2019 should be maximum 8 pages,
including the list of references. All submissions will undergo a
double-blinded peer-review process. Therefore, the authors should remove
any information that could give an indication of the authorship.
More information about paper submissions:

– Posters should be concise and visual descriptions of smaller research
contributions, work-in-progress projects, student projects or results.
They will be displayed at the conference venue and will provide an
opportunity to further develop and discuss the research topics
presented. More information about poster submissions:

– Doctoral consortium: GamiFIN 2019 invites doctoral students
(irrespective of stage in the program) to apply to the doctoral
consortium. The doctoral consortium will provide all doctoral students
the opportunity to develop and discuss their research among other
students and leading scholars of the area. Any research presented at the
consortium can also be submitted as a paper/poster in the conference,
but the consortium will allow the attendees to more extensively develop
their papers in collaboration with the conference chairs and keynotes,
as well as other students. More information about the doctoral
consortium: http://gamifinconference.com/cfp2019/doctoral-consortium/

Accepted papers and posters as well as far enough developed doctoral
consortium entries will be published in CEUR Workshop Proceedings in the
GamiFIN Conference volume. CEUR-WS.org is a free open-access publication
service and recognized ISSN publication series, ISSN 1613-0073. (In the
Finnish classification of publication forums, CEUR-WS-proceedings
(http://ceur-ws.org) are classified as JUFO-1).
