Game Jams  energized, fast-paced get-togethers of developers and artists
to make digital games  have emerged as a way to generate and provoke novel
game ideas. To introduce the HCI community to this collaborative fast-paced
approach to quick results, we will be holding a 2-day Game Jam that focuses
on new physical interfaces. During this hands-on workshop, participants
will collaborate with other researchers and practitioners across the CHI
community to build games with novel physical interfaces. The workshop has
three goals:

- Develop insights into the nature of digital play interactions through
actively designing them
- Develop long-term cross-disciplinary relationships between participants
- Expose participants to the game jam design method

At the end of the workshop, we will share the games developed with the CHI
community to fuel a greater discussion about games, play interaction, and
rapid development methods.
