ACM SIGGRAPH Video Game Symposium



ACM SIGGRAPH is hosting SANDBOX, a two-day video game symposium on 29 July and 30 July in 2006, co-located with SIGGRAPH 06 in Boston, MA, USA.

The symposium will consist of keynotes by Ian Shaw of Electronic Arts and Greg Costikyan of Man!festo Games, panels and peer reviewed papers focused on industry and scholarly perspectives on how video games are designed and developed; analysis of the experience and pleasures of game play; and critical articles on the value and significance of video games as cultural artifacts.

In addition, a "Hot Games" session will preview unreleased titles from major game companies and independent developers, and recently released and classic titles will be available to try. Save $100 on the symposium cost by registering on-line prior to the June 23rd early registration deadline and providing your SIGGRAPH member number.
