The ACM Workshop on Game Systems (GameSys) seeks research on all aspects of computer/digital games with an emphasis on networks, systems, interaction and applications. The first edition of GameSys will be in conjunction with ACM MMSys in May 2021.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, aspects of applications and technologies regarding game systems. We encourage submissions that showcase fundamental research to address challenges improving and enabling game systems and gameplay. Submissions should be targeted to one of the topics below:

  • System infrastructure for games
    • Operating systems
    • Networks
    • Computer graphics
    • Game engines
    • Novel technologies: blockchain, cloud, etc.
  • Human-game interaction
    • Input modality: mobile, EEG, eye gaze, etc.
    • Haptics and feedbacks
    • Virtual reality and mixed reality
    • Emotion, affection and experience studies
    • Player behavior analysis and modeling
    • Game balance and in-game economics
  • Serious games and gamification
    • Games for education
    • Games for healthcare and medical treatment
    • Games for crowdsourcing and collective intelligence

Topics that do not fall into the categories above may still be considered. When in doubt, contact the program chair.
