Call for Papers:

The 20th International Federation for Information Processing - International Conference on Entertainment Computing (IFIP-ICEC 2020) will be held in Coimbra, Portugal, on Nov. 2-5, 2020: The conference is organized by the the IFIP-ICEC TC14 - Entertainment Computing Technical Committee, and will be hosted by the University of Coimbra (Portugal), in association with the Portuguese Society for the Sciences of Videogames.

IFIP-ICEC is the longest lasting and prime scientific conference series in the area of Entertainment Computing. It brings together practitioners, researchers, artists, designers, and industry on the design, creation, development, use, application and evaluation of digital entertainment content and experience systems. In addition, it brings together research on education and entertainment. This event covers a diverse array of related research issues, including game-based learning and other learning experiences associated with entertainment.

COVID-19 Information   

We are fully aware that the situation regarding Covid-19 is a cause for concern. Hopefully, vaccination and traveling measures will have been adopted and the situation being normalised after the summer and therefore will hardly affect our conference schedule. Nevertheless, for those not being able to travel, we have measures to facilitate remote participation. It is our plan to bring all conference rooms online, enabling both local and distance engagement.

All accepted papers will be indexed by EI, and be published in book form in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. In addition, selected best papers from the conference will be invited for submission of an extended version to a special issue of Entertainment Computing (published by Elsevier).

In addition, this edition will feature a special track where authors of selected recent papers from the Journal of Entertainment Computing (Elsevier), will be invited to present their work at the conference.
