This is the weblog for the Women in Games Conferences, held in the UK since 2004. Our pupose is to highlight the most recent, groundbreaking work in computer game research and development to both academic and industrial worlds. We also seek to empower and provide professional development for women working in and reseaching into games and the games industry.
As an organisation, we aim to:
- Give a voice to women in the games industry.
- Analyse and monitor the role of women in the games industry.
- Provide networking opportunities, especially for women developing and researching games.
- Support and encourage students, researchers and developers to explore and redress the game industry’s gender imbalance.
- Disseminate research into games (past, present and future), especially (but not exclusively) with reference to the experience of women playing, developing and responding to games and game culture.
- Disseminate information on the latest technologies and the best design and development practices.
On these pages you’ll discover news, links, references, research and reports about the international women in games movement, and details about the Women in Games conferences held annually in the UK.
