Aqueles que foram no último SBGames sabem que o próximo será no Rio de Janeiro. Para aqueles que não conhecem, o SBGames é um evento que reúne toda a comunidade envolvida com o desenvolvimento de games no país (e também alguns apresentações do exterior). Todo o evento é dividido em trilhas. São quatros trilhas: Arte e Design, Computação, Cultura e Industria.
Para o SBGames deste ano, estas são as datas mais importantes:
Data limite para submissões: 30 de Junho, 2009
Anúncio dos trabalhos aceitos: 10 de Agosto, 2009
Simpósio: 8-10 de Outubro, 2009
Já foi feita a chamada para trabalho da trilha de computação. Segue parte da chamada:
*** Papers for the Computing Track ***
You are invited to submit your work to the Computing Track of SBGames 2008. The computing track will feature both full papers and technical posters (short papers):
- Full Papers must report mature work in the area of games and digital entertainment (a list of topics of interested is shown below). They should be written in ENGLISH and do not exceed 10 pages.
- Technical Posters (Short papers) are suitable for short reports on game research and development and works which are not mature enough for a complete publication. They may be written in Portuguese or English and are limited to 4 pages.
All contributions must be original, unpublished work. Any work that has previously been published or is been simultaneously submitted in similar form to any other conference or journal will be rejected. Accepted papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings, and at least one author must be registered, attend and present the work at the symposium.
Submissions will be made electronically through the JEMS System. Papers will be subjected to a double blind review system, thus authors must avoid including information that allow their identification (names, affiliations, explicit self-references, project names, etc). Detailed instructions including paper formatting are available at the conference web site. (http://www.puc-rio.br/sbgames09)
The authors of the best papers will be invited by the editors of the ACM CIE to submit an extended version of their papers to be published in the ACM Computers in Entertainment (To be confirmed).
Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:
- Affective computing
- Architectures, engines, and design patterns
- Artificial Intelligence
- Augmented Reality
- Camera techniques
