Dear colleagues, 


We invite you to join us for a Serious Games Research Forum at Purdue
University, October 11-12, 2007.  The keynote speaker will be James Gee,
Mary Lou Fulton Presidential Professor of Literacy Studies at Arizona
State University, and author of the recently released "Good Video Games
and Good Learning: Collected Essays on Video Games, Learning and
Literacy."  Participants include Alice Robison, of MIT's Comparative
Media Studies; Mia Consalvo, of Ohio University; Ben Stokes of MacArthur
Foundation and Games to Change; Sheri Graner Ray, of Sirenia Games;
Christoph Hoffmann, of Purdue University; Samantha Blackmon, of Purdue
University; and others.


In addition to humanistic and social science perspectives on serious
games, the forum includes presentations from Purdue faculty in computer
science, computer graphics technology, and engineering, with a
presentation about the new games-based course in aerospace design
planned for Fall 2008.


There will be a Town Hall forum Thursday evening 7-9pm; the Friday
research forum runs from 9am-3:45pm.  The day ends with a tour of
Purdue's Envision Center for Data Perceptualization, and a presentation
by Gary Bertoline on cyber-enabled learning infrastructures.


We will be live streaming (and archiving) the Friday 9 am keynote
presentation; the remaining presentations will be podcast.  More

Registration is recommended.


We hope you can join us!
