About the North American #gamesUR Summit

Palais des congrès de Montréal (Montreal Convention Centre)

The first annual North American #gamesUR Summit begins May 14, 2020 at the Palais des congrès de Montréal (Montreal Convention Centre) in Montreal, Canada.

In 2020, the #gamesUR Summit heads to Montreal! In our departure from San Francisco, the US Summit becomes the first annual North American #gamesUR Summit. We are pleased to announce that, for the first time, the Summit will feature a complementary Advanced Researchers Workshop.

The #gamesUR Summit at the Palais des congrès will feature a keynote, traditional presentations and panels at all experience levels in games user research and user experience, and opportunities to socialize with members of the community in downtown Montreal. The call for presentations and panels at the Summit is currently live. Check out our Call for Submissions page for more information!

The Advanced Researchers Workshop will feature invitation-only micro-talks dedicated to advanced research from veteran members of the games user research and user experience community. With exclusive seating for veteran researchers and designers, the Advanced Researchers Workshop will be hosted at Ubisoft Montreal on May 15, 2020.

At the Advanced Researchers Workshop, speakers will be expected to present for about 5 minutes on a topic of interest to senior-level games user researchers and user experience professionals. As we encourage the exchanging of ideas and solutions, talks may also pose questions to participants. An application to attend or present at the Advanced Researchers Workshop will be announced soon. Please note that due to seating limitations at the venue, the attendance to the workshop will be capped to about 50 participants.
