The conference includes a dynamic mix of academic, student, and industry engagement, with full papers and work-in-progress presentations, the student game design competition, a doctoral consortium, panels, rapid communications and an interactivity program. New this year is the "Master class" track, which focuses on knowledge sharing by topic experts from leaders in both industry and research.
This year, we have three inspiring keynote speakers, balancing academic research and industry. Our opening keynote speaker, Jason Della Rocca, is a game industry entrepreneur, funding advisor, and cluster expert. His keynote session explores the drive to invest in player research. Our second keynote speaker, Neha Kumar, is known for her work in the intersection of human-centered computing and global development. Her keynote talk invites the audience to engage with making play work for global development. Our closing keynote speaker, Elizabeth LaPensée, is an award-winning designer, writer, artist, and researcher who creates and studies Indigenous-led media such as games and comics. Her keynote highlights her work on a myriad of games such as Along the River of Spacetime that were informed by Indigenous self-determination expression, meaning they are led by Indigenous voices, which in turn informs the possibilities of interactions.
CHI PLAY 2020 is being held as a fully virtual conference. It's no secret that the research community is undergoing major changes to make sure that people can stay safe while continuing to connect, work together, and share their research with the world. Together, we can make sure that our community of researchers, students, and industry professionals continues to grow and thrive. The CHI PLAY conference series is the place for showcasing work on how interactive and playful experiences improve our lives and pave the way for technical innovation. In the CHI PLAY 2020 Virtual Edition, we will play together, connect people, meet old and new friends, engage in serious discussions and share entertaining moments, from everywhere.
