Serious Games Conference 2015 is Asia’s only conference focused on the applications of educational & healthcare games and other simulation related technologies.

Games deployed in schools and work places are the new media used in our modern society. So, what is serious games? 

Serious Game is the modern tool using the front end of a game (mainly to engage the player) and a back end engine to gather useful data which could use for improving work process efficacy and expanding knowledge base. However, there is much to understand and learn about the appropriate applications of such new medium. The Serious Games Conference 2015 will bring industry game developers and user organisations to come together to share their experience on how they approach and implement game technology and game based solutions in their organisations.

Another focus of the Serious Games Conference is the concept of “gamification” (motivation). The implementation of educational games in teaching and training does not directly imply the act of gamification. To implement gamification strategy and achieve the desired results will be extensively discussed at the forthcoming conference.

We welcome you to the sunny island of Singapore, to join us in our continuous journey to explore the exciting domain of serious games and simulation technologies!
