The first Game Education Summit Europe will take place at the Danish Academy of Digital Interactive Entertainment (DADIU) in Copenhagen, according to event organisers Game Path.
The summit is scheduled for June 22-23, 2010 and aims to bring together academics from universities and art schools, along with policymakers and industry professionals, to discuss the state of game education in Europe.
Registration for the event will begin in January, but in the meantime Game Path has made a call for papers. Proposals for presentations are sought on the following subjects:
- Education (curriculum, accreditation, methods, integration, diversity)
- Course Development (game writing, art for games, ethics and games, game audio design)
- Administration (starting a program, management, collaboration, grants, funding)
- Research (serious games, literacy games, games for health, military and other research)
- Industry (partnership, student involvement, internships, entrepreneurship, bringing games to market)
The first Game Education Summit was held in the U.S. in 2008 and has since become a regular part of the conference season in America. GES USA 2010 is due to be held in Los Angeles from June 15-16.
"Europe is one of the nerve centres of global game development," said conference director Suzanne Freyjadis. "At GES Europe, game educators and industry leaders will develop working relationships, the foundation for sustained market growth - and jobs - in the years to come."
