The evidently expanding Asian Gaming industry defines the need for the Computer Games & Allied Technology 08 conference at Singapore. The conference provides a platform for the international gaming community experts to discuss and deliberate with their Eastern counterparts on the state-of-the-art, new research results, perspectives of future developments, and innovative applications relevant to games development and related areas. The conference shall strive to shed light on the inherent sociological and design differences between the East and the West while exploring the challenges faced by the Asian Gaming industry. The conference also provides an opportunity to the international and regional Gaming studios, Game production companies and Allied technology and service providers to showcase their technology, products and services at the concurrent industry symposium.

Computer games model many interesting real-world problems and provide a fun, scalable, virtual environment for technological interplay. The conference venue at Singapore provides a similar fun, diverse but real-world environment for the gaming community to interact and connect. Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre serves as the Conference venue.

Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre, also referred as the Asia’s Convention City, is a self contained Convention venue which no other facility can match. The precinct surrounding Suntec Singapore forms a unique, self-contained and fully integrated convention city, adjacent to the Central Business District (CBD), and only 20 minutes from Changi International Airport Singapore.

The conference will address the key areas of Game design, production, programming, audio and visual arts, mobile gaming, game security, IPTV and edutainment, through the following technical sessions. The session list is indicative of the key areas of discussion but is not restrictive, and suggestions from the gaming community for additional specific sessions are welcome. Please write with your suggestions for additional sessions.

  • Games Simulations and Dynamic Models
  • Tools and Systems for Games and Virtual Reality
  • Media Theory
  • Aesthetic Approaches to Game Design & Development
