Serious Games Summit announced for D.C. in October

Summit on non-entertainment applications of gaming will establish east coast event separate from GDC.

Digitalmill and CMP Game Group are collaborating to present the Serious Games Summit in Washington, D.C. on October 18-19, 2004. The conference will cover the uses of gaming technology in areas outside the entertainment sector, including education, national defense, homeland security, management, and training--and studies of game-based simulations and solutions currently in use in these fields will be presented.

"As games become an everyday part of our culture, more organizations are finding incredible uses for the technology, talent, and ideas behind this new art form. That's why this is becoming a major new sector within the games industry and our mission is to grow that field," said Ben Sawyer, co-founder of the Serious Games Summit.
