The 4th Geogames and Geoplay Workshop is a full-day workshop that brings together researchers and GIS professionals interested in creating Geogames that serve meaningful purpose. It serves as a venue for sharing experiences and discussing technological challenges and solutions. We aim to provide a deeper understanding of the key issues in Geogame development and to help draft a research agenda in that area. Join this networking activity within the Geogames community.

The 2017 workshop will focus on “Gamifying the Open Smart City”. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Geogames for fostering social and environmentally-friendly habits
  • Educational Geogames
  • Data collection games, VGI games, human computation games
  • Experience reports about the design and development of Geogames
  • GI technologies in video games and location-based games
  • Simulation and AR games
  • Playful approaches to Geodesign
  • City-centred and citizen-centred game design


Call for Papers

Participants are invited to submit either a short paper (max. 3000 words) about original ongoing research in Geogames or a position paper (max. 1500 words) describing an application scenario or a game demo. Short paper submissions will be reviewed and selected for oral presentation during the workshop. The authors of selected position papers will be invited to participate in a panel discussion, and publication options will be discussed.

Geogames and Geoplay workshop is part of the 20-year anniversary celebration of AGILE, the annual international conference on Geographic Information Science.
