Over the past decade, the way in which education and training is delivered has changed considerably with the advent of new technologies. One such technology that has increased in popularity is Game-Based Learning (GBL). ECGBL offers an opportunity for scholars and practitioners interested in the issues related to GBL to share their thinking and research findings. Papers can cover a wide range of issues pertaining to GBL in education and training; technology and implementation issues associated with the development of GBL; use of mobile and MMOGs for learning; pedagogical issues associated with GBL; social and ethical issues in GBL; GBL best cases and practices, etc.

The conference committee welcomes contributions using a range of scholarly approaches including theoretical and empirical papers employing qualitative, quantitative and critical methods. Action research, case studies and work-in-progress/posters are also welcomed approaches. PhD Research, proposals for roundtable discussions, non-academic contributions and product demonstrations based on the main themes are also invited.
