Announcement for DiGRA Nordic 2012
The second Nordic DiGRA conference will take place in Tampere, Finland, in June 6-8, 2012. Titled “Global and Local: Games in Culture and Society”, it will bring together researchers, experts and students from various disciplines, all driven to understand better the roles different games, players, game design and industry have in our culture and society. The conference venue will be located at the new Technopolis building, next to the University of Tampere main campus. You can already learn more about activities and attractions of Tampere from address: http://www.gotampere.fi/eng .
The full call for papers will be circulated in September 2011, with submission deadlines set at the beginning of 2012. This event also celebrates the 10th anniversary of game studies conferences in Finland, as introduced by CGDC in June 6, 2002. We hope you will take this opportunity to mark the event already into your calendars – see you all in Tampere next year!
