CFP: Advances in Computer Games 12 - deadline extended

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
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.
