Call for Papers

In an era where digital landscapes are continually reshaping the way we learn, teach, and engage, the advent of academic esports stands at the forefront of educational innovation. Distinct from the realms of casual gaming and competitive esports, academic esports emerges as a disciplined approach that harnesses the immersive power of video games to cultivate a wide array of skills and competencies in learners. This nuanced field not only challenges the traditional paradigms of education but also opens new avenues for research, pedagogy, and learner engagement. As we delve into this burgeoning domain, we warmly invites scholars, educators, game designers, practitioners, and doctoral students to share their insights, research findings, pedagogical strategies, and visions at our seminar on academic esports.
This interdisciplinary event aims to foster a comprehensive dialogue on the integration of esports into educational settings, examining its impact, exploring innovative practices, and envisioning the future of learning through the lens of gaming. Through a mix of practitioner-oriented sessions, academic presentations, and a dedicated doctoral workshop, we seek to catalyze collaboration, inspire educational advancements, and contribute to the scholarly discourse on academic esports.

Event Structure:

21st -22nd May: Academic Presentations – Two days dedicated to the presentation of research and innovative teaching methods in academic esports.
23rd May: Practitioner-Oriented Sessions – Featuring panels, workshops, and presentations from figures in esports, education, and industry, focusing on the practical application of academic esports in various contexts. In addition there will be a keynote that we will soon be announced.
24th May: Doctoral Workshop – An opportunity for doctoral students to present their research, receive feedback, and network with established academics in the field.
This event will be physical, but we plan to stream the presentations.
