This year women in games is being held in a design school in the University of Wales, Newport and will focus on ‘Aesthetics in play: new platforms, new perspectives, new players’.

This year will see some high profile industry people from the US, the UK and Europe speaking as well as more academic papers and demos of work in progresss.

The deadline for proposals and papers was extended by two weeks and the new deadline is the 16th of Feb so there is still time to send in your ideas.

There is also now a womeningames blog at
