CFP: Temporality in Simulation Gaming

Timo Lainema (University of Turku) has issued a call for papers for a symposium issue of Simulation & Gaming on “Temporality in Simulation Gaming.”

With this symposium (special issue) of Simulation & Gaming, we call on authors to prepare and contribute original and unpublished articles exploring temporality in simulation gaming. Research on time in gaming is becoming more common, but is still rare. This is surprising considering that the majority of business simulation/games, for example, have a time dimension embedded in their virtual world.

Possible topics of interest (not necessarily limited to these):

  • review of existing literature on simulation gaming time processing and presentation methods, with the most recent developments;
  • the nature of time during a simulation game and how it affects the gaming experience;
  • flow/immersion and time – how they are linked together;
  • what kinds of phenomena can be represented with simulation games that have different ways of dealing with the flow of gaming decisions and tasks;
  • how the time presentation of a simulation game affects the authenticity of the game;
  • problems of condensed and simplified simulation time – does condensation lead to potential problems and misunderstandings ;
  • studies on the relationship between the progression of events within the game internal world time and the progression of real-world time
  • how temporality affects the cognitive processes of the player
  • time in team based games – how temporality affects team processes, communication and collaboration
  • temporal structures for arranging optimal game learning processes: when to motivate, brief, and debrief the game content and outcomes, how the participants change on the temporal continuum during this process (from newcomers to experts in the gaming context)
  • presentation and analysis of simulation games which aim at teaching future-oriented awareness of the players – learning about time, its horizon and future;
  • how various perceptions and notions of time influence the debriefing process.

Unfortunately, I’ve only just seen the CFP, and so the deadline for submission of abstracts is soon—”summer 2015.” For further details, see the link above.
