Welcome to the International Simulation and Gaming Association’s
(ISAGA) conference 2024!

The 55th ISAGA Conference will take place from 08. to 12. July 2024,
at the University of Canterbury, in Ōtautahi Christchurch, New Zealand.

Founded in the seventies, ISAGA is one of the oldest communities of people involved in the domain of gaming and simulation. Its members cover a vast knowledge and tradition in developing and using simulation, gaming, and related methods. Today, the community brings together researchers and practitioners from the fields of management, social and environmental sciences, education, planning, and technical sciences. They study the design, facilitation, and debriefing methods as well as evaluation protocols of gaming/simulation.

Simulation Gaming Across Borders”.

The theme of the 55th ISAGA conference illustrates the true nature of games and simulations that cross disciplinary borders, connect people and cultures, fosters understanding, and acts as ‘multilogue’ language.

We encourage submissions for Paper presentations, Thematic Sessions, Workshops and Demos, Poster presentations, and an interactive Game Exhibition. The program will be completed by thought-provoking keynote addresses, and an attractive social program.

Venue

Participants will be able to experience Ōtautahi Christchurch, a revitalised city in the heart of Aotearoa New Zealand’s South Island. This is a city in perfect balance; home to a diverse natural playground, wide open spaces, modern architecture, and heritage buildings.
