Education, as well as game programming and pedagogical/psychological issues.

multi-disciplinary forum where teachers, lecturers, researchers, developers,
artists, producers and industrial and academic users come together to share
ideas, knowledge and experience.

achieved using games, making education and training fun and enjoyable.


The conference invites leaders from industry, government, funding agencies,
