The Workshop „Games and Interfaces” is addressed to students and postgraduates with basic experience in computers. The scope of
the workshop ranges from theoretical introductions into (computer) games, advanced interface techniques, game demonstrations and
project presentations up to practical work on game and interface design. In the practical part of the workshop we will use a Java based
platform with a variety of physical, chemical and biological sensors for advanced man machine interaction. The development of new
interfaces to computer games, either self-made games or commercial products, is a central aim of the workshop. Elementary
knowledge of a programming language, e.g. Java or C++ is advantageous but not required.
Contributions are expected from students of the Academy of Media Arts Cologne as well as from the Center of Culture and
Communication, C3 Budapest.
