Volunteers Sought for Game Technology Task Force
LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 22 October, 2010 – The IEEE Computer Society is seeking interested volunteers to help develop conferences and technical activities in the area of game technology.
To nominate qualified individuals to help invigorate and grow the Task Force on Game Technology, go to http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SXPK99V. Nominations are due by 31 October.
“Game technology is moving beyond the realm of pure entertainment and is being adopted in other more serious applications,” said John Walz, Vice President of the Technical and Conference Activities Board and 2011 President-Elect. “The task force will go beyond the individual interests of the various disciplines and perform research in discipline integration and other issues specific to game development.”
The Computer Society’s peer-reviewed magazines and transactions frequently include articles on aspects of game technology. In addition to several conferences, the Computer Society also sponsors the Game and Simulation Technology Standards Group. Last year, a Game Technology Workshop was held to identify a game technology roadmap consistent with the Computer Society’s strategic plan.
