1. Panels By and For Industry and Researchers

Panels will feature leading industry professionals and games researchers on:

  • Applied Game Research: Players, Design, and Technology
  • Games for Learning
  • Meaningful R&D Partnerships
  • Positive Game Lab Impact

This is your chance to meet leaders like new media scholar Henry Jenkins and MIT neuroscientist Sebatian Seung, whose artificial intelligence work is an inspiration for how game-like tools can have real-world impact.

2. Then, work with the MIT Game Lab

This gathering also marks the launch of the MIT Game Lab, the new international home of game scholars, creators, and technologists, all working to solve the tough challenges people like you to bring to the table.

The symposium is open to the public. But we especially welcome those who think games have a role to play in advancing their academic, non-profit, and corporate missions but dont yet know how. To that end, your participation in this symposium can be a step toward working with the MIT Game Lab long-term.
