Games for Change Asia-Pacific will host its first festival on October 5th-7th 2021, both virtually (with sessions held all across the Asia-Pacific region) and if circumstances permit, in Melbourne, Australia as part of Melbourne International Games Week.
With over 4 billion residents, the Asia-Pacific region represents over half the world, and an exciting mix of developed and emerging economies who are doing some amazing work in the games for change space, covering the use of games for learning, health and social change.
The new G4C APAC festival will highlight this work, connecting developers, researchers, practitioners and consumers, and inspiring the next generation of games that will change the world. We are excited to be part of an active and passionate community that is working on this new festival. The festival will include a full day of workshops and masterclasses, followed by two days of speakers and panels.
We welcome presenter and poster submissions from anybody in our region using games to make the world a better place.
Proceedings will be published in an open access proceedings journal to be published in conjunction with ETC Press at Carnegie Mellon University.
Presentations must be pre-recorded for the virtual component of the conference. If circumstances permit, a real world session will be held in Melbourne, Australia, at a time and location to be confirmed.
We welcome submissions from all those in our region who are using games to make the world a better place. An abstract is not essential if you don't wish to be published in the proceedings journal, a short description of your proposed presentation is fine.
Submissions close midnight AEST Tuesday June 22nd 2021
