Place de la Bourse, Bordeaux, France

The yearly Foundations of Digital Games conference will be held in Europe for the first time in 2011. The Foundations of Digital Games promotes the exchange of information concerning the scientific foundations of digital games, technology used to develop digital games, and the study of digital games and their design, broadly construed. FDG 2011 will be held in Bordeaux, France from June 28-July 1, 2011. The conference General Chair is Marc Cavazza (Univ. Teeside, UK), and the Program Co-Chairs are Katherine Isbister (Polytechnic Inst. of NYU, USA) and Charles Rich (Worcester Polytechnic Inst.).

The call for papers is available, and there are several ways to participate. Research papers and poster submissions are due February 10, 2011. Workshops will also be available; contact Rafael Bidarra, Workshops Chair, for details.

The Foundations of Digital Games conference series is operated by the Society for the Advancement of the Science of Digital Games, a California-based nonprofit corporation. SASDG will be running a Travel Assistance Program this year to help defray the cost of travel to the conference for selected authors and graduate students.
