IEEE 2024 Conference on Games Call for Papers

COG 2024 

Call for Papers

Submission of *full* papers: March 1, 2024

Submission of *auxiliary* papers: April 28, 2024


The annual IEEE Conference on Games (IEEE CoG) aims to be a leading venue for

researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas and novel approaches to bring

innovation in and through games. Games are a great domain to study and develop

novel ideas in design, artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction,

psychology, education, sociology, and creativity, as well as their applications

in real-world problems. IEEE CoG 2024 will take place at Politecnico di Milano,

which is located in Milan, Italy.


We invite contributions related to all game aspects, including, but not limited



- Accessibility and inclusivity in games

- Game design (frameworks, game mechanics, etc.)

- Game technology (game engines, graphics, audio, animation, physics,

  networking, controls, etc.)

- Player-Computer Interfaces

- Generative AI for games

- Serious/applied games (for health, sustainability, etc.)

- Extended reality (virtual reality, mixed reality, and augmented reality)

- Esports and live-streaming

- Games for education, learning and development

- Game editors and authoring tools

- Game User Research (player/opponent modeling, player experience studies,

  psychology of play and player types, etc.)

- Game-playing AI

- Games as test-beds for algorithms

- Game analytics, game data science, and data visualization

- AI for game development (automated playtesting, adaptation/personalization in

  games, etc.)


Please note: CoG is not a conference about game theory and does not accept

papers about game theory unless they are applied to games people would play,

such as video games or board games.


*** Full papers ***

We invite the submission of full *technical* and *vision* papers with an 8 page

limit (including references and appendices). Full *technical* papers should

provide a technical or empirical contribution to scientific, technical, or

engineering aspects of games. Full *vision* papers should describe a vision for

the future of the Games field or some part of it, be based on extensive

research, and include a comprehensive bibliography. Please notice that the

standards for vision papers are high: literature reviews and opinion papers with

speculations not grounded in research are immediately rejected. 


*** Auxiliary papers ***

We invite the submission of *short* and *demo* papers. *Short* papers (2-4

pages) describe work in progress, smaller projects that are not yet ready to be

published as a full paper, or new progress on projects that have been reported


*Demo* papers (2 pages) describe works to be presented during a demo session. 


All page limits include references and appendices.
