    Goodtechs 18

    4th EAI International Conference on
    Smart Objects and Technologies for Social Good
    Special Session on Serious Games to Improve Quality of Life
    http://goodtechs.eu/

    CALL FOR PAPERS

Gamification techniques and serious games are often used to capture  
and maintain user's attention. This is particularly important when  
dealing with young patients or people with special needs.
Patient's collaboration is crucial for doctors to perform a good  
diagnosis, and to provide an efficient therapy, but it cannot always  
be taken for granted. Moreover, serious games are proved to be an  
efficient tool to incentivize people to improve their lifestyle, e.g.,  
making more physical activity.
This track will feature new insights, research, and practice on how to  
design, develop and use gamification and persuasive technologies to  
create serious games and applications to improve individuals' Quality  
of Life (QoL) and behavior, with a particular focus on people with  
disabilities.
The track targets researchers, doctoral students, practitioners and  
other people interested in presenting, discussing, reflecting and  
networking on central themes associated with the development and use  
of serious games and applications to help people with special needs.
Papers on both theoretical aspects and design method of gamification  
techniques and serious games are welcomed, which describe and evaluate  
novel design methods and system prototypes. In addition, the track  
welcomes full research and work in progress papers and educational  
cases.

GoodTechs 18 will be held in Bologna, Italy, from the 28th to 30th of  
Novembre 2018.
