The 10th ACM International Conference on Motion in Games (MIG 2017) will take place in Barcelona, Spain from November 8-10, 2017 and will be hosted by UPC (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya). MIG is sponsored by ACM and held in cooperation with Eurographics.
Motion plays a crucial role in interactive applications, such as VR, AR, and video games. Characters move around, objects are manipulated or move due to physical constraints, entities are animated, and the camera moves through the scene. Even the motion of the player nowadays is used as input to such interactive systems.
The International Conference on the Foundations of Digital Games (FDG) is a major international event in-cooperation with ACM SIGAI, SIGCHI, and SIGGRAPH. It seeks to promote the exchange of information concerning the foundations of digital games, technology used to develop digital games, and the study of digital games and their design, broadly construed.
One of the newest -- and most successful -- entries into the indie game scene is "This War of Mine," developed and published by 11 Bit Studios. Previously known for mobile games such as "Anomaly" and "Sleepwalker's Journey," 11 Bit created a different kind of game altogether with its latest release, which has generated quite a following amongst the gaming community, particularly on the Steam platform.
The 8th International ACM SIGGRAPH Conference on Motion in Games 2015 (MIG 2015) will be held in Lisbon, Portugal. The conference was rescheduled from its original dates and location in 2015 due to safety concerns.
Created intentionally or spontaneously, cyberworlds are information spaces and communities that immensely augment the way we interact, participate in business and receive information throughout the world. Cyberworlds seriously impact our lives and the evolution of the world economy by taking such forms as social networking services, 3D shared virtual communities and massively multiplayer online role-playing games.
The 2015 International Conference on Cyberworlds will address a wide range of research and development topics, including but not limited to:
The Toronto ACM SIGGRAPH Chapter presents a talk by the founder of TooMuchVoltage Software, Baktash Abdollah-shamshir-saz. Baktash is the sole implementor and maintainer of the HighOmega game engine. Currently at version 2.0 and built on open standards, HighOmega boasts many pages of features yet is currently programmed in approximately 34,000 lines of code and compiles to a mere 780kb.
i3D is the leading conference for real time 3D computer graphics and human interaction.
2015 marks the 29th year since the first conference. This year's event will take place in San Francisco, California from February 27 to March 1, 2015.
As in 2014, i3D 2015 will be held immediately before the Game Developers Conference (GDC'15) in the Bay Area, which provides an excellent opportunity to attend both conferences and see both research and application in real time 3D computer graphics.
The Fort Lauderdale ACM SIGGRAPH and Florida Game Developers Association will be co-hosting this year’s 48-hour Global Game Jam at the Digital Media Arts College from January 23 to 25, 2015.
The Game Jam is open to everyone interested in creating games: beginners, hobbyists and professional game developer are all welcome. Any type of game can be created at the Jam, and no one is limited to just creating video games.

Attendees must be industry professionals or video game development students. Visit the EGS conference website to request accreditation to attend the event.
A panel on "gameful design" -- what it is, and how it can help you develop business models, support innovation, benfit society and more. The panel is sponsored by the San Diego Chapter of ACM SIGGRAPH.
Admission is $5.
The 7th International ACM SIGGRAPH Conference on Motion in Games (MIG 2014) will take place in Los Angeles, California, from November 6 to 8. 2014 marks the first year Motion in Games will be held in the United States.
Games have become a very important medium for education, therapy and entertainment. Motion plays a crucial role in computer games. Characters move around, objects are manipulated or move due to physical constraints, entities are animated, and the camera moves through the scene. Even the motion of the player nowadays is used as input to games. Motion is currently studied in many different areas of research, including graphics and animation, game technology, robotics, simulation, computer vision, and also physics, psychology, and urban studies.
