Since the original deadline was cut very close to the end of the winter holidays, CHI decided to extend the allowed deadline for all workshop submissions. You can submit (or resubmit) your papers to the CHI 2015 Workshop “Gamifying Research” until January 19, 2015.

No, not points for plumbing and badges for bidets, but a series of 10 talks in the very english town of Bath. They’re ostensibly on gamification, but the remit is really the impact of games on a wide variety of fields. I’m presenting session four and so far we’ve already had talks on serious games, ARGs for education and tomorrow (Fri 21st) there will be a talk on Gamification, Innovation, Transformation by the organiser, and innovation specialist, Anja-Karina Pahl.
Next week I’m presenting (28th October) on Gamification, Design and Beyond. I’ll be using some of the definition work that has already been carried out via our CHI and Mindtrek papers, as well as discussing the general trend in the ludification of culture; the ludic turn. Some colleagues from the Play Research Group at UWE will be presenting over the next few weeks.
The event is free, but they would like you to register for it if you’re coming along. Drinks during and dinner afterwards.
