    A draft programme and abstracts for papers to be presented at this
    international conference on computer gaming are now available online as well
    as facilities for booking a place at the event.

    The conference will feature approximately sixty papers on various aspects of
    computer and video gaming from the educational potential of computer gaming
    to the computer games and violence debate; from investigations of games
    markets to developing cheat-proofing protocols; from teenagers in Taiwan to
    senior citizen gamers in the USA.

    The event has already attracted delegates from around the world including
    Brunei, Denmark, France, Germany, Iran, Italy, Switzerland, Taiwan, UK,
    United Arab Emirates and USA. It has drawn the interest not just of
    academics but also industry and governmental organisations such as ELSPA
    (European Leisure Software Publishers Association), BECTa (British Education
    Communication and Technology Agency), and IGDA (International Game
    Developers Association). Gamers are represented at the event by key figures
    from the Cyberathletes' Professional League and the organiser of some of the
    UK's biggest gaming events.

    Playing with the Future is now only six weeks away and available places at
    the event are already limited so those interested in attending are
    encouraged to register as soon as possible.
