The advances in computer entertainment, multi-player/online gaming, technology-enabled art, 
culture and performance have created new forms of entertainment that attract, immerse and 
absorb their participants. The phenomenal success of such a "culture" to initiate a mass 
audience in patterns and practices of its own consumption has supported the evolution of an 
enormously powerful mass entertainment, digital art and performance industry extending deeply 
into every aspect of our lives, leading further to major societal and business contacting 
changes.

The International Conference on Digital Interactive Media in Entertainment and Arts (DIMEA), 
in cooperation with ACM, is the premier forum for the presentation of societal, business and 
technological advances and research results in cross-disciplinary areas related with digital 
interactive media in entertainment, art and creative technologies. This conference is 
dedicated to build common ground between research, design and development, learning and 
collaboration in its myriad digital media forms: one of its many objectives is the 
exploration of 'play & learn', demonstrating new arenas and applications for digital gaming 
and incorporating leading edge technologies, designs and models in our changing views about 
what is involved in gaming.

DIMEA 2008 is jointly organized by Athens Information Technology (AIT), ACM Special Interest 
Group on Computer Human Interaction (ACM SIGCHI, Singapore Chapter) and the Society for 
Excellence and Innovation in Interactive Experience Design (InExDe).

DIMEA 2008 will bring together academics, technologists, artists, designers, and industry 
representatives to address and advance the leading edge of new digital and interactive media.
