May 8-9, 2008 :: Baltimore Convention Center
The Games for Health Conference offers a rich platform for learning, promotion, networking and business development for organizations interested in the intersection between games and health. Topics to be covered include exergaming, medical simulation, interactive messaging, health behavior change, medical informatics, physical therapy and game development.
More than 300 individuals from 100 organizations – academic institutions, government agencies and foundations – are expected to attend.
Also, a pre-conference event on May 7 will offer two workshops: Games Accessibility and Virtual Worlds & Health. All conference participants will have the chance to interact and play with these games that are improving society.
Web site for registration: www.gamesforhealth.org
Registration is $395 for Thursday, May 8 & Friday, May 9 and the pre-conference workshops on Wednesday, May 7 are $99-$129.
The price did go up on April 7 before this got posted. If anyone emails me at firstname.lastname@example.org I’ll be happy to give you a discount code to make up for the discrepancy.
Looks interesting. One discrepancy: when you go to the website to register, it says the conference fee is $495. Is $395 a special rate for Health Blog readers, or did the price increase?
