Games+Learning+Society Conference – June 13-15, 2012

The University of Wisconsin-Madison is excited to announce the Games+Learning+Society (GLS) Conference 8.0 to be held June 13-15, 2012 at the Memorial Union on campus.

The GLS Conference is the premier event in the field of videogames and learning. Now in its eighth year, this grassroots “indie” event is evolving to include innovative content formats and new programming. The GLS Conference is one of the few destinations where the people who create high-quality digital learning media can gather for serious discussion about what is happening in the field and how the field can serve the public interest. Our event is well-known for its exceptionally high quality of content yet “community event” feel. Each year, we foster in-depth conversation and social networking across diverse disciplines including game studies, education research, learning sciences, industry, government, educational practice, media design, and business. Our continued commitment is to reinvent learning both in and out of formal schools through the promise of games and simulations.

Unfortunately, the deadline for submitting papers for the conference was Feb. 7, 2012!  Well, maybe next year.

GLS 8.0.
