Date: 13-15 August 2009
Location: Oslo, Norway
Deadline: 1 June 2009

The purpose of this conference is to initiate an investigation into how current research on computer games touches upon philosophical issues. In line with this purpose, the conference is interdisciplinary, drawing together researchers from diverse fields such as: philosophy, computer game-theory, semiotics, aesthetics, sociology, psychology, and anthropology.

For more information, see http://www.gamephilosophy.org/.

We invite submissions focusing on, but not limited to, the following three headings: "Fictionality and Interaction", "Defining Computer Games" and "Ethical and Political Issues". Accepted papers will have a clear focus on philosophy and philosophical issues in relation to computer games. They will also attempt to use specific examples rather than merely invoke "computer games" in general terms. Deadline for submissions is June 1, 2009.
