Dear All,
I would like to draw your attention to the CFP - Intergenerational Gaming, Accessibility, Motivation, and Engagement (iGAME) which will be published in The Computer Games Journal (TCGJ)

Overview: The CGJ is pleased to announce a CFP for the forthcoming special issue: iGAME (intergenerational: Gaming, Accessibility, Motivation, and Engagement).

The field of Games Studies has received a vast amount of interest and investigation over the last 50 years, ranging from game addiction, gender, engagement/interaction, to health rehabilitation and cohorts (i.e. baby boomers). However, intergenerational gaming has received less attention, with the exception of works by Voida and Greenberg (2009;2010), de Schutter et al. (2017), and Wang et al. (2018).

Given the nature of play and the developments of game technologies over the last couple of decades, intergenerational gaming offers a myriad of experiences for both gamers and nongamers, novice and expert gamers alike. Intergenerational gaming can facilitate several motivations in a milieu of domains from health and rehabilitation, to co-op and online gaming.

We invite submissions for this special issue of TCGJ, which focus on cutting edge research and perspectives in relation to intergenerational gaming. We welcome contributions from academics, industry professionals, students, and those with direct experience of intergenerational gaming. We will also consider papers concerning non-computing related intergenerational gaming, which reflect the intersectional and interlinked nature of intergenerational gaming.

Please see below for all important submission dates:
 Title and abstract of proposed paper 30th August 2019
 Draft paper for peer review 30th November 2019
 Revised paper  10 February 2019
Topics include, but are not limited to:
 Flow/immersion  Design  Usability, accessibility  Player experiences  Multi-methods  Health and rehabilitation  Culture and/or Environment  Multi-disciplinary  Player modelling  Predictive analysis
