Center for Computer Games Research

Center for Computer Games Research at ITU is Denmark’s only scientific center for computer games research. The researchers have backgrounds in the humanities, computer science and sociology. They deal with subjects such as theoretical game analysis, game aesthetics, ethnographic studies of game communities, game design theory, artificial intelligence and game experience as well as ‘serious games’: how computer games can be used for education, rehabilitation, medical purposes and many other important purposes.
