2019 Speaker Submission

The goal of Serious Play is to allow attendees to be at the cutting edge of the thinking, strategies, knowledge and technology driving the serious games industry. We are seeking speakers who are thought leaders, teachers or professionals who will share both the mistakes and the successes of what they have learned developing or using game technology to improve learning or do other tasks like solving big research problems. Attendees also want takeaways — ideas they can implement.

In the course of your presentation, you may use examples of your programs.  However, your objective needs to be helping others learn from your experience.  Self-promotional presentations will be rejected.  We encourage potential presenters to imagine creative ways to make their presentation as interactive and playful as possible. For instance, proposals that explicitly outline the interactive nature of their workshop will be viewed favorably. Submissions are on a rolling application process, so apply as soon as you can. The final deadline for submissions will be February 15.

Come to Serious Play to help others improve their game based learning programs, so serious games become ubiquitous.  Together we can revolutionize education and training!

If you have co-presenters or panelists, please supply their photos and bios at the bottom of this form.
Be as specific about the content as possible. Space is limited. It's more important to be clear than clever.
Keep in mind that the focus of Serious Play Conference is the sharing of knowledge to help the industry grow. We do not accept submissions focused on promoting a single game or a company. We are interested in speakers with broad knowledge of their topic who will share their successes and failures. Talk about the challenges your area of expertise faces. You may give examples from your company to explain what you set out to do and how you overcame various problems. NOT A SALES PITCH! Attendees are looking for practical advice, tips and lessons learned.
