Join us at IMSH 2014 for the 4th annual Serious Games and Virtual Environment (VE) Arcade and Showcase. The Serious Games and Virtual Environments Arcade and Showcase provides an environment where users of virtual and game-based technology can collaborate and network with students, clinicians, educators, start-ups, as well as small and large established companies.
If you have a serious game, virtual environment or related innovative technology designed for clinical education we want to see it at the Arcade and Showcase. Inclusion criteria are primarily based on the ability of the participant to provide hands on interactive experiences for IMSH attendees to engage in. While the interactive experience generally relates to some sort of media or multi-media experience, this is not required. Experiences should occur in a virtual environment or through game-play.
All presenters are eligible for Best-in-Show awards. Awards criteria include attending to the creativity, interactivity and or game experience that each “product” provides. Other facets of evaluation include: Organization, Ease of Use, Level of Fidelity, Customizability, Innovation, and Adaptability.
