Who should come? Everyone! At least everyone who likes, or plays, or designs, or runs, or writes about, or does research into, or simply thinks about, games, simulations, experiential learning exercises, and related methods. We welcome contributions that report on research, design, and practice in simulation and gaming, especially contributions that combine technology, methodology and content, that build bridges among learning pedagogies, information and communication technologies (ICT), and simulation and gaming methodologies. Participants at ISAGA conferences tend to prefer practical and research-oriented sessions. Although the focus will be on learning-by-doing and reflection-in-action, the conference will pay attention as well to methodological and theoretical questions.
