What are new directions in research and teaching about serious gaming? What is the current and future social impact of immersive technologies? What are emerging areas of inclusive game development? What are current directions in visualization, including (among other areas) virtual reality and text analysis?  In what ways are digital tools transforming the process of storytelling?
