SBGames 2010

SB Games is, as the organization describes, the most important event in research and development of video games and digital entertainment.

This year's edition - edition no. 9 - will take place in Florianópolis, Brazil; starting Monday (Nov. 8) until Wednesday (Nov. 10).

This year, I'm there!

 

SBGames2010, which will take place next week, will address the topic 'Games on the Network'. As they describe, the objective of this year's event is to  - in simple terms - "reflect on the relations between games and social networks, as well as the different tribes that appear on the networks as a result of games; as well as how these occurences are shapping the market and the industry."

 

While this year's edition will be the 9th event, the SBGame Conferences began in 2002 with the name Wjogos. While the conference focussed initially on computation, over the past few editions it has begun to embrace other areas such as art, design and the industry.

 

While the main theme of this year is 'Games on the Network', I'll be presenting a slightly different paper.

The work I'll be presenting is related to a comparative study that I elaborated, and  that took into consideration how hardcore and inexperienced players visually, and physically interact - through their avatar - in a video game. Specifically, in a 'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare' game map.

The study I conducted and the method I developed to evaluate these differences used an eye tracker (as would be expected).

I'll be presenting on the last day... so I guess I'll have to keep the butterflies in my stomach calm until then.

 

I'll be sure to let you know how the public reacted next week! See you then.
