Apologies for cross-posting.

We've received several really great responses (on time, even!) to our 
CFP, but we've also had enough requests for extensions that we felt it 
only fair to make a blanket offer. The new deadline is Monday, May _8_. 
Please send all submissions to [log in to unmask] by this date.

Thank you,

2006 DIS (Designing Interactive Systems) Workshop
On the Process of Game Design
25 June 2006
Call for Participation
The game design process is largely driven by practice; while some work 
has been done to address theoretical foundations for game design, this 
work has been done only in academia. These two communities rarely come 
together to discuss their perspectives on design theories or processes. 
As a result, both communities work in isolation. The game industry 
works at the level of individual games, but academics are concerned 
primarily with theoretical foundations and broad scope. The goal of 
this workshop is to start a dialogue between the two communities and 
generate general themes and underlying theories. From a practical side, 
these theories will aid game designers in constructing games, help tool 
designers build better tools that allow designers, and support the 
research goals of academia. More broadly, these theories should help 
the two communities integrate, making science more relevant to practice 
and practice more viable.
This workshop will include participants from a variety of backgrounds, 
including art, architecture, game studies, and computer science, and 
will also include academics and practitioners. The workshop will be 
composed of interactive sessions in which participants engage in 
hands-on applications of specific theories, as well as discussions 
about design processes.
We are looking for papers that address the game design process, 
including game tuning, design theories, design frameworks, 
multi-disciplinary aspects of design, aesthetics, psychology of design, 
definition of fun, patterns of play, etc. We encourage papers that will 
serve as a foundation for interactive presentations that allow 
participants to engage in a design activity.
