About Game Education Summit North America
The Game Education Summit provides conference sessions and networking opportunities to college and university educators that offer game development and design degrees as well as the various industries that work on game development including the entertainment sector, government, medical, military and various aspects of serious games.
Program Directors and academics from both established and new programs attend the Game Education Summit to learn best practices for game education programs, the latest trends in game education and the latest research being developed in the game programs. There is also a focus on a future vision for game education that is discussed during the keynotes.
Staff from game entertainment and serious games organizations attend the Game Education Summit to form a direct link with game education programs, learn about the future of game education and provide feedback to educators on industry's needs.
Attendees benefit from networking at the Summit that allows both industry and academics to learn from each other and create mutually beneficial relationships in technology development, hiring of graduates and funding of specific projects. Networking opportunities are available during lunch and coffee breaks as well as during the reception on the opening night of the Summit.
The content for the GES sessions is generated both by submissions to the website of papers as well as invited speakers. Keynote speakers are also selected by the Conference Director, Steve Farrer and the Advisory Board. All paper submissions are reviewed by the advisory board and the program is created based on the focus and overall theme presented by the submissions.
Speakers are granted a gratis admission to the conference and the papers and presentations that are selected are available for viewing after the conference.
