CfP: International Symposium on Simulation & Serious Games 2014 (23-24 May, South Korea)

Organised by the Korea Games Society (KGS), The International Symposium on Simulation and Serious Games is the only Asian platform to gather researchers and academics from not just the computer science departments but also from the education/medical departments together to understand how games and simulation could be applied in education, adult learning and medical applications.


23 – 24 May 2014, Kintex Convention Centre, South Korea

Researchers and scientists are now using games as an educational tool to provide opportunities for deeper learning. This application is not just used in the school’s curriculum but also in adult training courses. In Asia, the education market is a very large market with Central Asia having the highest literacy rate followed by East Asia. Even in the South and West Asia, the literacy rate has reached over 75%.

Our purpose for initiating this conference is to foster engagement of academic communities from Europe and the Americas with their Asian counterparts so as to be able to make a positive impact that would enrich the lives of communities through research exchanges that would ultimately translate into market applications.

Our theme for the conference is: “Bridging Communities, Harnessing Technologies and Enriching Lives.”

All accepted papers published in the proceedings will be indexed at CrossRef with DOI. Accepted papers will also be indexed in ISI Thomson (Web of Science). CrossRef is an independent membership association, founded and directed by publishers. CrossRef’s mandate is to connect users to primary research content, by enabling publishers to work collectively. CrossRef is also the official DOI® link registration agency for scholarly and professional publications.

Besides indexing in CrossRef, all accepted submissions, after the refereeing process, will be published on international journals, IJTMCP or SERSC. Both publications will be indexed in the major academic databases, including SCOPUS.
