>The inaugural Games, Learning and Society Conference (GLS) will provide an
>ideal opportunity for participants to help define the direction of a
>burgeoning field. The GLS Conference will foster substantive discussion
>and collaboration among academics, designers, and educators interested in
>how videogames – commercial games and others – can enhance learning,
>culture, and education. The GLS Conference is sponsored by the University

>Academic ADL Co-Lab

>Speakers, discussion groups, interactive workshops, and exhibits will
>focus on game design, game culture, and games’ potential for learning and
>society more broadly.
> The GLS Conference is the first of its kind and therefore a unique
> and ideal opportunity for those interested in interactive media and its
> intersection with society and education. Because there is a growing
> interest among academics, software developers, school districts, and
> granting agencies to learn more about interactive technologies,
> simulations, and games, the GLS Conference organizers created this
> two-day event to begin to explore how these parties might work
> together. Space for enrollment is limited, so please register soon at
> <http://www.glsconference.org/>http://www.glsconference.org/.
> The Games, Learning, and Society Conference is an exciting,
> interdisciplinary meeting that will define the direction of a burgeoning
> field. Registration is still open at
> <http://www.glsconference.org>http://www.glsconference.org for the
> conference taking place June 23 and 24 at the Monona Terrace in Madison, WI.
