Join the MIT Game Lab and our keynote speaker, visionary game developer Peter Molyneux, on September 21st for a one-day symposium:

Games in Everyday Life and Why That Matters to You

What can finance, health care, philanthropy, and education learn from cutting-edge games and game theory? The new MIT Game Lab (http://gamelab.mit.edu) has some answers for you. Join us September 21st!

Register here! http://mitgamelabsymposium2012.eventbrite.com

1. Panels By — and For — Industry and Researchers

Our panels will feature leading industry professionals and games researchers on:

  • Applied Game Research: Players, Design, and Technology
  • Games for Learning
  • Meaningful R&D Partnerships
  • Positive Game Lab Impact

This is your chance to meet leaders like new media scholar Henry Jenkins, MIT Game Lab executive director Philip Tan, and MIT neuroscientist Sebatian Seung, whose artificial intelligence work is an inspiration for how game-like tools can have real-world impact.

2. Then, work with the MIT Game Lab

This gathering also marks the launch of the MIT Game Lab, the new international home of game scholars, creators, and technologists, all working to solve the tough challenges people like you to bring to the table.

The symposium is open to the public. But we especially welcome those who think games have a role to play in advancing their academic, non-profit, and corporate missions but don’t yet know how. To that end, your participation in this symposium can be a step toward working with the MIT Game Lab long-term.

3. Register
