Eludamos Doctoral Consortium at CEEGS 2024


The editorial board of Eludamos: Journal for Computer Game Culture and the organizing committee of CEEGS have teamed up to arrange a doctoral consortium during this year’s conference on October 10-12, 2024, at University of Peloponnese in Nafplio, Greece. The consortium will take place on the first day of the conference (Oct. 10).

More details on the overall conference can be found here.

You can download the CfP here.

We would like to invite doctoral students to submit abstracts for papers or chapters (400-600 words excl. references) by May 1, 2024. Please submit your abstracts to both the following email addresses: holger.potzsch@uit.no and agata.anna.waszkiewicz@gmail.com. You will be notified about the results by May 15.

Based on our assessment of the abstracts, we will invite a limited number of contributors to develop full draft papers of 4-5.000 words (word count excl. references) and submit these to the organizing committee by September 15, 2024. The full papers need not be finished but should give a clear impression of which theories and methods are used, for what purpose, and what findings can be expected. We accept papers using methods from the Humanities and the Social Sciences. Preferably, manuscripts should take a critical and reflective perspective, i.e. we will give preference to papers avoiding merely instrumental outlooks on game design and development. We do not accept project proposals or papers that have already been submitted.

During the one-day doctoral consortium, we will dedicate 30 minutes to each accepted paper. All drafts will be distributed to all registered participants at least two weeks prior to the event, so we will assume everyone has read every paper.

During the consortium, initially authors will briefly contextualize their papers (targeted publication channel, degree of completion, specific weaknesses, ...). To save time, we will refrain from summarizing content.

Each paper is then commented upon by two opponents – one peer doctoral candidate and one senior scholar. We aim at constructive and inclusive feedback. The remaining time is used for open plenary discussions and feedback.

The main purpose of the consortium is to help authors develop papers suitable for peer-review processes in academic journals. After the event, the editorial board of Eludamos will contact selected authors and ask them to submit finalized versions of their papers for review at the journal.

In case you should have questions, please do not hesitate to contact one of the organizers of the consortium via the emails listed above.
