For the eleventh time, the Clash of Realities international research conference is providing the opportunity for interdisciplinary exchange and dialogue. Experts from the academy, science and research, economics, politics, and the game industry will discuss pressing questions concerning the artistic design, technological development, and social perception of digital games, as well as the spreading of games literacy.
The conference welcomes scholars, social scientists, game developers, specialists in education and media, up-and-coming creative talents, students, and all those interested in and excited by digital games.
This year, however, some things are different than in the past. As we all know, health and safety measures during the Covid-19 pandemic prevent us from meeting in person. Therefore, we split the conference into two parts. The first one, which will take place from November 18-19, 2020, will be completely online.
Each of the summits will give a unique online presentation about pressing topics in game studies, media and education, game development, new technologies, and game entrepreneurship and discuss these topics with an enthusiastic online audience. This year’s conference – as well as the second part next year – is co-organized by the Cologne Game Lab, TH Köln – University of Applied Science – and the Department for Media Culture and Theater at the University of Cologne.
The digital conference will begin with the Young Academics Workshop on November 18th. On the Main Conference day, November 19th, we introduce our five summits for the 11th Clash of Realities in very different and individual forms.
Each summit presents its topic comprised in a 1 hour session — as panel discussion, virtual exibition, video clip, or micro lectures.
The second half of the day features exciting keynote presentations by renowned speakers from all around the globe.
We are looking forward to welcoming you online in November 2020 and in person next summer in Cologne.
