CALL FOR PAPERS: 8th International Conference on Computer and Games, 13-15 August 2013, Center, Yokohama, JAPAN
The eight conference on Computer and Games (CG2013) will be held in Yokohama, Japan, in conjunction with the 20th WCCC and the 17th Computer Olympiad at the Pacifico center (http://www.pacifico.co.jp/english/index.html). The conference commences on Tuesday August 13 at 08.30-12.30h and will take place on three consecutive days. 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 Computers and Games and the ACG Conferences have encouraged the organizers to widen their scope and therefore we encourage contributions 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: (1) the current state of game-playing programs for classic and modern board and card games, (2) the current state of virtual and video games, (3) new theoretical developments in game-related research, and (4) general scientific contributions produced by the study of games. Also researchers on topics such as (5) social aspects of computer games, (6) cognitive research of how humans play games, and (7) issues related to networked games are invited to submit their contributions.
