A Call for Papers

The International Colloquium on Board Game Studies invites all scholars to submit articles in the area of board game research. The purpose of the Colloquium is to illustrate individual research, to discuss the role of board games in the academic arena, and to enhance multidisciplinary cooperation in games research.

Summaries, Abstracts, and Presentations:

Participants interested in presenting a paper should submit a topic title and informal summary, written in English, not exceeding 200 words. Summaries should be submitted by 15 December.

If your paper is accepted, you will be asked to make a presentation at the Colloquium. You will then need to submit a formal abstract (you may use your summary as your abstract). These abstracts, of 200-500 words, due 15 February, will be printed in the colloquium program, which all participants will receive at registration; all abstracts must be in English.

All presentations will be given in English and should not exceed 30 minutes; there will be a 10 minute period for questions following each presentation.

Summaries, abstracts, and inquiries can be emailed to; please show "BGS" somewhere in the subject, so your email doesn't get erased as spam.
