Call for Papers

We hereby invite scholars in any field of studies who take a 
professional interest in the philosophy of computer games to submit 
papers to the 7th International Conference on the Philosophy of Computer 
Games, to be held in Bergen, Norway, October 2-4 2013.

Player experience and dynamics in computer games are structured around 
apparent spatial relations inside the gameworld. It is furthermore 
common to use spatial metaphors such as  “action space”, “possibility 
space”, “experiential space” to explain central aspects of these games. 
For this conference we invite papers that aim to clarify and critically 
evaluate views about the nature of spatial relations in computer games. 
The papers may address such questions as: Is space in games fictional or 
real? What is the nature of space in games if it is not fictional? What 
are the formal properties of space in computer games? What is the role 
of spatial relations in defining interactivity? What is the relation 
between in-game spatial orientation and ordinary spatial orientation?

Accepted papers will have a clear focus on philosophy and philosophical 
issues in relation to computer games. They will refer to specific 
examples from computer games rather than merely invoke them in general 

In addition to papers that are directed at the main theme we invite a 
smaller number of papers in an “open” category. We are especially 
interested in papers that aim to continue discussions from earlier 
conferences in this series.

The abstracts should have a maximum 1000 words including bibliography. 
Please note if you intend your paper to fit in the “open” category. 
Deadline for submissions is 17:00 GMT, June 14, 2013. Please submit your 
abstract in PDF format through review.gamephilosophy.org. All submitted 
abstracts will be subject to double blind peer review.  Notification of 
accepted submissions will be sent out by August 15, 2013. A full paper 
draft must then be submitted by September 25, 2013 and will be made 
available on the conference website.

We also issue a call for workshops to be held on October 1. Please 
contact the program committee chair if you are interested in organizing 
a workshop.

For information about the conference please visit 
2013.gamephilosophy.org and gamephilosophy.org. A wiki-based 
bibliography for the conference theme will be made available.

  1. Hi! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I needed to
    ask. Does building a well-established blog like yours require
    a large amount of work? I am completely new to writing a blog however I do write in my diary daily.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!
