Research and development on Serious games

T 013, 29/09/2010 (9:00-10:30)

The challenge is to tap the potential of serious games which apply games technology to non-entertainment domains.

Serious games apply games and simulations technology to non-entertainment domains, such as history and culture, environmental awareness and physical rehabilitation. They define an interdisciplinary research area where concepts such as human-computer interaction, user-centred design, social networking, signal processing and computer graphics, are interwoven. This session networks researchers, designers, developers and user groups who share interest in serious games as a medium to reach out to wider audiences. It will be based on participants from the PlayMancer (physical rehabilitation), Siren (conflict resolution in schools) and eCircus (social and emotional learning) FP7 projects.

Softkinetic would like to get in touch with the consortia in the serious game R&D and be informed on its dissemination activities. We also take this opportunity to invite all participants to experience our gesture recognition middleware for games at the Belgian pavilion booth B01.

Interested in proposed session. Several interests in potential application scenarios, one being Serious gaming potential as interactive environment with integrated purpose-specific middleware applications per CI (Critical Infrastructure) protection initiatives, for overall visual and flexible scenarios simulation and analysis (for expert (developers) and non-expert (training) users). However not quite sure that this area may be included in the application domains of interest of the session.
