  • Clash of Realities Conference on the Art, Technology and Theory of Digital Games

    November 14-16, 2016 Cologne, Germany

    For the seventh time the Clash of Realities international research conference offered the opportunity for an interdisciplinary exchange and dialogue. Experts from the academy, science and research, economics, politics and the game industry discussed pressing questions concerning the artistic design, technological development, and social perception of digital games, as well as the spreading of games literacy.

    The main conference day  (Nov 16) featured internationally renowned speakers. It was preceded by a day of summits (Nov 15) including talks, project presentations, panel discussions and workshops.
