## CHI 2013 Workshop Designing Gamification: ##
## Creating Gameful and Playful Experiences ##

In recent years, gamification – the use of game design elements in 
non-game contexts – has seen rapid adoption in domains such as 
education, work, self-management, health and well-being, sustainability, 
or civic participation. In parallel, a growing body of research has 
studied its uses and effects, as well as the evaluation of game user 
experience in general. Yet little is known about the effective designing 
of gameful systems. This one-day workshop therefore convenes HCI, games, 
and design researchers as well as industry practitioners to take stock 
of current design practices and approaches to gameful systems, chart 
challenges, issues, and best practices, and identify key opportunities 
and questions for future research. You will also get to pop balloons.

# Topics of Special Interest #
* Postmortems, lessons learned, recurrent challenges and issues 
encountered in the design of gameful systems
* Design models, principles, methods, tools, and evaluation methods 
adapted from interaction and game design
* General and domain-specific constraints, opportunities, facilitating 
and success-critical conditions of gamification

# Submission Information #
We invite interested participants to submit a 3-4 page position paper in 
the CHI extended abstract format to Sebastian Deterding at 
chi2013 at gamification-research.org. Researchers and practitioners with 
first-hand experience in designing a gameful system may alternatively 
submit a slide deck outlining their experience. For further information, 
see the workshop site 

Papers and slide decks will undergo a peer-jury process and 15-20 will 
be selected, with preference to submissions based on actual design 
experience. At least one author of each accepted paper needs to register 
for the workshop and for one or more days of the conference.

# Important Dates #
* Submission Deadline: January 11, 2013
* Notification of Acceptance: February 8, 2013
* Workshop: April 28, 2013
