Looking for a unique outlet for your academic research and writings about video games? I'm pleased to announce that the Broadcast Education Association is hosting a one-day research symposium on the cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and social demands of video games! The event, "Video Games: A Medium that Demands Our Attention" is being held on Sunday, April 23, 2017 in Las Vegas (exact venue TBD), and papers are being accepted now. Manuscripts can be either data-driven or theoretically focused, so long as they:

(a) adhere to one of the four main symposium tracks (cognitive, emotional, behavioral, or social)
(b) are capped at 4000 words, including abstract and references (manuscripts will be made anonymous for the review process)
(c) are submitted (via e-mail to the Symposium Chair) no later than midnight, EST on Thursday, December 1, 2016

There will be cash prizes for the top student papers, and some manuscripts will be invited for further development, to be included in a published volume on video games by Routledge (Taylor & Francis) as part of their "Electronic Media Research Series" (https://www.routledge.com/Electronic-Media-Research-Series/book-series/EMR).

Complete Symposium details can be found at http://www.beaweb.org/wp/?page_id=3345. I can also answer any questions that you might have, at Nicholas.Bowman at mail.wvu.edu.
