Seeking presenters and volunteers for the 2016 Oregon Game Studies Conference

The Think.Play Steering Committee is currently seeking students, faculty, staff, and community members who are interested in participating in OGSC 2016. You can get involved by filling out the OGSC16 Sign Up Form.

The different ways to get involved are:

Student Research Presentation

Any university student, graduate and undergraduate, currently doing academic investigation in video game culture and design are invited to present their work. University students who are hoping to present their research on a video game related subject should provide a short abstract describing their topic. The presentation should run no more than 20 minutes, which will be followed by an informal discussion with the audience.

Workshop/Demo Presentation

We seek workshop proposals that focus on video game scholarship and development. Workshops should be informative and encourage discussion. Contributors should plan on an informal presentation that will last no longer that 30 minutes. Individuals hoping to lead a workshop should submit a short description of their idea and their predicted needs for space and equipment.

Video Game Developer and Artist Show Participant

OGSC will have an exhibition room separate from the panel room that is dedicated to displaying locally made video games and video game art. Individuals and groups who would like to show their games or game related art should submit a short description of their work and their predicted need for space and equipment.

Conference Volunteers

We are looking for volunteers to monitor the conference rooms, help set up equipment, and offer needed assistance to OGSC panelists. Volunteers will be expected to present for the full duration of the conference, and they are guaranteed the chance to attend at least two panels of their choice. Anyone interested in being a volunteer should supply their contact information and wait for further instruction.

Again, if you’re interested in signing up for any of these positions please fill out the online form located here: OGSC16 Sign Up Form

Also if there is a way you’d like to be involved not listed in the form, contact us and we will be happy to accommodate your idea.
