Speak at Gamification 2013 – present your ideas, experiments and case studies at the conference. Just make sure to submit your short paper or proposal by August 8th.

We’re looking for a broad range of presenters, all with one thing in common: pushing the envelope on gamification and the application of motivational design beyond traditional games. Students, too, are invited to submit their designs in a specific student competition.

The conference chairs ran their first Gamification 2013 Hangout discussing, What’s New in Gamification. Viewers could join in online with their questions and comments using our conference tag #gameit13.

The Q&A covered use of gamification in healthcare, the differences between gamification and games and intrinsic versus extrinsic rewards. The panel also discussed the term 'gamification' and whether businesses would be better served using terms like "motivational design" or "engagement" when proposing gamification programs due to the perception of 'games' not being serious.
