About Motion in Games

Games have become a very important medium for both education and entertainment. Motion plays a crucial role in computer games. Characters move around, objects are manipulated or move due to physical constraints, entities are animated, and the camera moves through the scene. Even the motion of the player nowadays is used as input to games. Motion is currently studied in many different areas of research, including graphics and animation, game technology, robotics, simulation, computer vision, and also physics, psychology, and urban studies. Cross-fertilization between these communities can considerably advance the state-of-the-art in this area. The goal of the Motion in Games conference series is to bring together researchers from this variety of fields to present the most recent results and to initiate collaboration.

The conference includes entertaining cultural and social events that foster casual and friendly interactions among the participants. For the latest information about the upcoming conference, now dubbed Motion, Interaction and Games, have a look here.
