The Digital Preservation community has benefited from fun ways to learn about digital preservation and curation over the years, especially at prior iPRES conferences. In 2024, we will once again open the floor again for inspiring games.
This category includes any form of board, video, or other game format broadly defined that addresses, illustrates, amplifies, or explores any aspect of digital preservation. Digital preservation games don’t need to be digital games, we certainly welcome board games!
The proposed game can be at any stage of development or design from idea to beta version to a game that is already developed and ready to try, provided that it will be ready to play at iPres 2024. If for any reason your game is not ready to play, you should consider presenting it as a poster or lightning talk instead.
A simple indication of the game you wish to demo is required.
The abstract will not be published in the proceedings and there will be an option for the games room facilitators to submit a short report for the proceedings, depending on ability of reviewers and contributors to meet the deadline.
Contributions for the Games room are due by 15 May 2024
Template: participants must fill out the form in Indico.
All collaborators in the game should be identified and the presenters should be marked.
You should include a clear outline of the game interaction and who you want to invite to take part, what prior knowledge you expect and what participants can expect from the process.
You should clearly indicate if you intend to present live or pre-recorded or hybrid. The conference may not be able to fully support your wishes and submitters should be open to work with conference organizers to organize a great experience.
We kicked off the submissions with a webinar on Jan 11th. You can watch it here and ask your questions in our online drop-in sessions.
