The 12th International Conference on the Foundations of Digital Games
(FDG), August 14-17, 2017, Cape Cod, MA (hosted by Northeastern University)

Conference theme: Celebrating the Player

The International Conference on the Foundations of Digital Games (FDG) is a
major international event in-cooperation with ACM SIGAI, SIGCHI, and
SIGGRAPH. It seeks to promote the exchange of information concerning the
foundations of digital games, technology used to develop digital games, and
the study of digital games and their design, broadly construed. The goal of
the conference is the advancement of the study of digital games, including
but not limited to new game technologies, critical analysis, innovative
designs, theories on play, empirical studies, and data analysis.

This year’s conference theme focuses on Celebrating the Player. The field
of digital game research has made significant advances in the past decade,
from attempting to define what games are to developing techniques to create
content automatically. As such, the academic community has contributed to
the increasing growth, understanding, and diversity of digital games. This
year we want to challenge and expand research that improves theories and
methodologies around: the interaction between players and games, how games
are designed with the player in mind, how games are perceived by players,
how novel technologies enhance the player experience, and how games affect
players on a cognitive, behavioral and affective level. The aim of this
year’s conference is to bring together game researchers from a wide variety
of backgrounds and research interests to increase our understanding of
players. We welcome high quality conceptual, empirical, theoretical, and
methodological contributions.

FDG 2017 will include presentations of peer-reviewed papers (with rebuttal
process), invited talks by high-profile industry and academic leaders,
panels, workshops, and posters. The conference will also host a game
competition, tech demo session, and a doctoral consortium. This year’s FDG
conference will nominate two papers with honorable mention and one best
paper from each track.

FDG 2017 is organized in-cooperation with ACM SIGAI, SIGCHI, and SIGGRAPH.
We anticipate that long papers, short papers, and posters from this year’s
conference will appear in ACM's Digital Library.
