GaLA 2020

Publié le 11/06/2020

The Games and Learning Alliance conference is an international conference dedicated to the science and application of serious games.

GaLA 2020 (9th edition) will exceptionally be held 100% online on the 9th and 10th of December 2020.

It is organized by the LIUM researchers in LAVAL (France), the historical capital of Virtual Reality!

The conference will be held in a virtual world where we can bring together researchers, developers, practitioners and stakeholders without putting our health at risk.  This environment will allow us to interact, share the state of the art of research, analyze the most significant trends and discussing visions on the future of serious games.

The conference also includes an exhibition, where developers can showcase their latest products.

The conference is organized by the Serious Games Society, which is building a scientific community at the international level for shaping future research in the field. This community represents a significant blend of industrial and academic professionals committed to the study, development and deployment of serious games as really useful and effective tools to support better teaching, learning, training and assessment.
