Workshop on Games in Engineering & Computer Science (GECS)


Application Deadline: April 10, 2010 (Applications are now being accepted)

Applications are invited for a Workshop on Games in Engineering and Computer Science (GECS). This workshop is intended to explore the opportunities and challenges that are presented by and for the use of games and game-based solutions in engineering and computer science education.

The workshop format will be highly interactive and all participants will
have an opportunity and be expected to contribute. A variety of sessions
are planned including individual presentations, panel discussions and
group activities. The workshop has four main themes: game design, game
development, implementation and assessment.

Participation is solicited from scholars and practitioners from all
related disciplines including computer science, engineering, education,
game design and game development. Applicants can be from academic
institutions, industry as well as non-profit groups such as foundations.

Participants will be selected by the workshop planning committee based
on their contributions to the field and potential to benefit from the
workshop. The goal of the planning committee is to get both thought
leaders as well as beginning practitioners from a broad range of
disciplines and institutions.

Please visit the GECS website ( for more
information about the workshop, the application process and requirements
and important deadlines.
