Workshops & Doctoral Consortium

The DiGRA 2017 committee received nine workshop proposals and we’re happy to report that we are able to accommodate all of them. The workshops cover a wide variety of topics related to games. Please find workshop titles, calls for participants, and deadlines below.

Closer to July, we’ll post logistical information about the venues and getting to The University of Melbourne and RMIT campuses. Both campuses are right in the heart of the city and are accessible by public transportation.
