Call for proposals: Breaking Boundaries with Video Games IV

Breaking Boundaries with Video Games IV

River Campus Libraries, University of Rochester, Rochester, NY

April 24, 2020

The River Campus Libraries of the University of Rochester will host a one-day event on April 24, 2020 featuring presentations about interactive media, including video games, augmented reality and virtual reality, plus a video game arcade.

This is the fourth year of this annual conference, Breaking Boundaries with Video Games (BBVG), which focuses on the creation, play, study and analysis of video games. It brings together faculty, students and staff from the University of Rochester, RIT, The Strong Museum of Play and other area institutions. This event is intended as an opportunity for those using video games in their research, teaching, and artistic creation to come together to share ideas and experiences around video games. We welcome students, faculty and staff at all levels to join us in this discussion. Presentations will be brief, no more than 12 minutes, with questions from the audience.

There will also be an opportunity to present a video game that you have created in the Arcade. Selected video games from the collection in the Art/Music Library will be available to play, but you can also include your game in the Arcade.

Please submit your proposal for a presentation or a video game, including your name, research or creative interests around video games and email address, along with a brief biographical statement in Word or PDF format by February 28, 2020, to sfrontz@library.rochester.edu.

You will receive notification of acceptance by March 10, 2020.

If you have any questions about this event, please contact Stephanie Frontz, sfrontz@library.rochester.edu.

Thank You!
