CUNY Games Conference 9.0: Deadline extended to 12/19/22

The abstract submission deadline for the 9th CUNY Games Conference has been extended to Dec 19th, 2022!

The CUNY Games Network of the City University of New York is excited to announce The CUNY Games Conference 9.0 on January 23 & 24th, 2023.

This two-day hybrid conference will have online sessions on Day 1 and in-person sessions on Day 2. Online sessions will have participant-led presentations, less formal idea exchanges held in breakout rooms, and a handful of organizer-led workshops. Our in-person Day 2 will have a short session led by the organizers on modding tabletop games for education, and then presenters will be invited to playtest their own games or playful activities (either completed or in-progress). There will also be time for the free play of published tabletop games.

The CUNY Games Network promotes game-based pedagogies, focusing particularly on non-digital playful learning activities faculty can use in the classroom every day. We aim to bring together all stakeholders: teachers, researchers, graduate and undergraduate students, and game designers. This year we are also opening the conference’s doors to include K-12 teachers. Both CUNY and non-CUNY participation is welcome—and completely free of charge.

Call for Abstracts

We are calling all teachers, staff, and graduate students who play or design games/playful interactive activities for your students to participate or present! Both CUNY and non-CUNY participation is welcome, including K-12. Please use the following link for more information about submitting a proposal:
