The annual conference of the International Simulation and Gaming Association will be held 5-9 July 2010 in Spokane, Washington.

ISAGA is an international organization for scientists and practitioners developing and using simulation, gaming and related methodologies. They include: simulation, gaming, role-play, structured experiences, policy exercises, computerized simulation, play, virtual reality, game theory, debriefing, experiential learning, and active learning. They are used in a broad range of professional areas, including: university, industry, government and business. Note: ISAGA is not concerned with gambling.

  • to encourage a wider use of simulation and gaming methodologies, particularly in the social, human and technological domains;
  • to facilitate communication among specialists of simulation and gaming throughout the world;
