CFP: Advances in Computer Games 12

Pamplona, Spain

May 11 - May 13, 2009

The twelfth conference on Advances in Computer Games (ACG12) will be held in Pamplona, Spain, in conjunction with the 17th WCCC and the 14th Computer Olympiad at El Centro Europe de Empresas e Innovacin de Navarra (CEIN; located here on Google maps). The conference commences on Monday May 11 at 12.30-17.00h and will take place on three or consecutive days; the other days from 8.30h till 12.30h.

The conference aims in the first place at providing an international forum for computer-games researchers presenting new results on ongoing work. The recent successes of the ACG Conferences and the Computers and Games conferences have encouraged the organizers to widen their scope and therefore we welcome contributions on Robotic Pool and Snooker as well as on virtual and video games and modern board games.

So, we invite contributors to submit papers on all aspects of research related to computers and games. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:

the current state of game-playing programs for classic and modern board and card games,
the current state of virtual and video games,
new theoretical developments in game-related research,
general scientific contributions produced by the study of games,
social aspects of computer games,
cognitive research of how humans play games, and
issues related to networked games.
The proceedings of the ACG12 will be published in the Springer LNCS series.
