GAME STUDIES SYMPOSIUM, DECEMBER 4

The Game Studies master programme of the University of Amsterdam, is proud to announce its second Game Studies Symposium. It will be held on Friday, December 4, from 13:30 till 17:00h in Science Park 904, room C0.05.

We are excited to have as keynote speaker Prof. dr. Georgios N. Yannakakis (University of Malta). Prof. Yannakakis investigates affective computing and player experience modelling - subjects that are of relevance in numerous interaction domains. Also, we are most pleased to announce as speakers Prof. dr. Anton Eliëns (VU University Amsterdam), and our excellent (cum-laude) students. Their research concerns the increasingly more relevant subjects of affective / persuasive game design, and showcases the joint research efforts of TNO, the University of Amsterdam, and the VU University Amsterdam.

Attendance to the symposium is free of charge.
