Level Up, inaugural conference of the Digital Games Research Association (DiGRA)

Gamefest
In November 2003 the GAP organized Level Up, the inaugural conference of the Digital Games Research Association (DiGRA) in cooperation with DiGRA and leading academic and industry partners.
Computer games have become one of the main parts of the entertainment industry and an important element in our daily life. They also challenge the academic community with opportunities in a rapidly developing field of enquiry.
Approaching computer games as an autonomous field of academic research, the presentations of the conference studied computer, console, mobile and online games from the points of view of game design and reception, from social and cultural perspectives and paid special attention to computer game methodologies.
