Serious games and gamification techniques are often used to capture and
maintain user’s attention, engagement, and motivation. This is particularly
important when dealing with our today’s challenges. The scope of this track
is to have novel papers that includes elements of gaming and gamification
techniques used as approaches to solve our today’s problems and challenges.
The problems and challenges could be within quality of life and well-being,
social inclusion, accessibility, persuasive systems and solutions,
lifestyle promotion, people with disabilities, teaching and education,
social and behavior changes (e.g. global warming and climate changes,
nutritional changes, and health behavior changes), physical exercise
promotion (exergaming), intervention and treatment, mental health, and

This track will feature new insights, research, and practice on how to
design, develop and use gamification and persuasive technologies to create
serious games and applications to improve individuals’ Quality of Life
(QoL) and behavior, with a particular focus on people with disabilities.

The track targets researchers, doctoral students, practitioners and other
people interested in presenting, discussing, reflecting and networking on
central themes associated with the development and use of serious games and
applications to help solving our today’s problems and challenges. Papers on
both theoretical aspects and design method of gamification techniques and
serious games are welcomed, as well as system prototypes and novel
evaluation methods. In addition, the track welcomes full research, work in
progress papers and educational cases.

Accepted papers will be included in the ACM Digital Library. Special issues
associated to the conference are being organized. Selected papers will be
invited to submit an extended version to those journals.
