international platform for leading game studies researchers and  
scholars, game designers, education professionals and gamers from  
around the world. The main objective of FROG 10 is to explore the  
relations between gaming, society and culture and to discuss insights  
into how to think ahead and beyond common limits of theory and  
practice of game and play. Therefore the Call for abstracts and games  
focuses on the topic "GAME\\PLAY\\SOCIETY". FROG 2010 is jointly  
organized by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Economy, Family and  
Youth, the City of Vienna, wienXtra, the University of Vienna and the
