The Games and Entertainment Special Community created this competition to showcase student work in areas of game design and development that connect strongly to the CHI community of research and practice. Students submitted games as well as extended abstracts clarifying innovative aspects of their work. The jury selected three finalist games in each category—Games for a Purpose, Innovative Interface and Innovative Game Design—and the winner in each category will be announced at the awards session on Wednesday afternoon.
