We had a great response to our call for proposals. Thanks to all of you.

Have you ever considered facilitating an interactive session at a gaming and simulation conference? If so, now is your chance to share those experiences and have fun with like minds! We have opened the call for proposals and want to hear from you. We are back in Bloomington, Indiana on the campus of Indiana University October 26-29, 2016  and you are invited to join in the fun.

You are invited to submit a proposal in one of two formats:

  • Breakout Session – allows attendees to brainstorm, collaborate, and (of course) play games with a focus on learning and improving results
  • Interactive Poster Session – allows you to share your research findings or current work.

To submit a proposal, download and complete the application. Email the document to All proposals are due Friday, April 1, 2016. You may submit more than one proposal by completing a separate application for each.

What is NASAGA looking for in a session?

  • We want interactive sessions that include time for debrief and discussions.
  • We want “Aha!” moments that inspire us to build upon what you shared.
  • We want to play games.
  • We want to have fun while learning or brainstorming.

Possible topics include

  • Game-based learning
  • Game design and development
  • Game mechanics and skinning
  • Case Study (i.e. how you used a game for training, education, etc.)
  • Augmented reality

All proposals are due Friday, April 1, 2016.

How is the NASAGA Conference Different?
The strength of NASAGA conferences lies in the interactive breakout sessions. That’s why we’re looking for presenters from all corners: teachers, professors, instructional designers, game designers, facilitators, speakers, performance improvement specialists, consultants, corporate trainers, and more. Check out prior conference agendas and videos for ideas! Get the latest news on the 2016 Conference.

Additional thoughts on sessions
Do you have a great idea but are bored with the typical constraints of conference presentations? Consider experimenting with an alternative style of presentation to engage the audience.

Did you create or modify a game that facilitated learning? The audience might benefit from a chance to play the game before learning about it.

Do you have an idea that you want to try out or a process that you found successful? Consider making your session a game jam or collaborative working session.

Download and complete the application. Email the document to All proposals are due Friday, April 1, 2016.

We hope to hear from you soon!
