Gamification 2013 is the premier event to share ideas, collaborate with thought leaders (academics and industry experts) and explore the future of gamification.

In cooperation with the Special Interest Group on COMPUTER-HUMAN INTERACTION (SIGCHI) of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), Gamification 2013 will be hosted by the University of Waterloo Stratford Campus.

The conference will showcase current research in gamification and provide a venue for international and interdisciplinary attendees to discuss the research and the growing gamification industry. The conference program will highlight Canada’s existing and emerging leadership in this sector, and enable the collaboration and planning that will ensure the industry’s continued success. The program streams will feature a blend of academic research and experimental applications with industry and non-profit examples, procedures, best practices, goals and results.

Whether your focus is research, design, applications, the technology behind gamification or its commercialization, join us October 2-4, 2013 at the University of Waterloo Stratford Campus in Stratford, Ontario.
