Forwarding a message from the CHI Play 17 general chairs

Dear colleagues,

Apologies for multiple postings. Just a small reminder that early
registration is still open for CHIPLAY 2017 until September 15th,

I’d like to personally invite you to the CHI Play 2017 conference (Oct.
15-18) that we are organizing in Amsterdam. Let me update you on the
upcoming conference and possibilities to attend, especially the keynote of
Prof Ian Bogost, which is open to the public on Sunday evening, October
15th. CHI PLAY is an international and interdisciplinary conference (by ACM
SIGCHI) for researchers and professionals across all areas of play, games
and human-computer interaction (HCI). We call this area “player-computer
interaction.” More information is available at

This year we have received a record number of submissions, and we were able
to select a excellent group of papers for presentation! CHI Play is a
single-track conference with a friendly community, and attendees will
easily mingle and connect with presenters. Early-bird discount ends on
September 15, be sure to register before then (

To make the conference more accessible for everyone, we decided to place
Ian Bogost’s opening keynote on Sunday October 15th evening, and provide
super-discounted tickets (30 Euros, students 15 Euros - use discount code
studentKey17) . We want to address not only academics, but also
practitioners and students, so please feel free to forward this invitation (

Monday 16th is “industry day” (a special 1-day pass is available), and will
culminate in an exhibition, named ‘Dutch Courage’, showcasing games &
playable artifacts from the Netherlands. The refreshments & social mixer at
the opening of the exhibition is free for conference attendees, and special
tickets are available for those who want to attend only it (

We also have courses on Sunday 15th, including prof. Sebastian Deterding’s
“How to Do Gameful Design”. Deterding is among the top scholars in
gamification, and his course addresses practitioners, graduate students,
and researchers. Information for registering at

CHI PLAY brings research and industry closer, so that the game research,
design and development community can benefit. As a result, this year CHI
PLAY is trying something fresh, a new track, called ‘Spotlight Papers’,
which will highlight significant work from both industry and research —
from innovative implementations to thought-provoking case studies.

And we have much more that doesn’t really fit into this email. Do visit for more information.

I am really looking forward seeing you in Amsterdam next month!
