CONFERENCE DETAILS:

This biennial conference explores the growing cultural importance of interactive media. Confirmed keynote speakers for the conference include Professor David Benyon, Director of the Centre for Interaction Design, Edinburgh Napier University, U.K., Jon-Paul Dyson, Director of the International Center for the History of Electronic Games at the Strong National Museum of Play, Rochester, NY., Michael Schmalz, President of Digital Extremes and Dejan Momcilovic of WETA studios, New Zealand.

The first Interacting with Immersive Worlds conference in 2007 drew presenters and attendees from a multiplicity of disciplines who heard keynote presentations by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (Claremont Graduate University), James Gee (Arizona State University), and Chris Csikszentmihalyi (MIT Media Laboratory). The second conference in 2009 was just as successful and provocative, with keynote speakers such as Janet Murray (Georgia Institute of Technology), Espen Aarseth (IT University of Denmark), Geoffrey Rockwell (University of Alberta) and Deborah Todd (Game Designer, Writer and Producer).

All scholarship on, and creation of digital interactive media (including but not limited to computer games and interactive fiction) will be considered in one of four broad conference streams:

The Innovations in Immersive Worlds stream features creative exploration and innovation in immersive media including ubiquitous computing, telepresence, interactive art and fiction, and alternative reality.

The Critical Approaches to Immersion stream looks at analyses of the cultural and/or psychological impact of immersive worlds, as well as theories of interactivity.

The Immersive Worlds in Education stream examines educational applications of immersive technologies.

The Immersive Worlds in Entertainment stream examines entertainment applications of immersive technologies, such as computer games.
