Games Reading Group

The Games Reading Group at York provides a forum for all University of York researchers interested in game-related topics. Past topics covered in presentations are wide-ranging: from interactive drama over game evaluation to indivisual games, such as Magic the Gathering. The group meets on a weekly basis, and its members are not limited to the computer science department, and include researchers from the Psychology and Sociology Departments.

If you would like to attend, or be kept up to date on meetings and discussions, please subscribe to the GRG mailing list by contacting Dr. Daniel Kudenko.
