Games@GaTech is an Institute-wide initiative to leverage Georgia Tech’s leadership role in video games research and education by aggregating and incubating interdisciplinary games research and academic activities across the campus.
Sponsored by IPaT and the GVU Center, Games@GaTech (http://games.gatech.edu/) strives to accomplish the following goals:
- Bring together diverse games activities and foster greater internal awareness, research collaboration, and funding access among entities and individuals with the institute;
- Help create a single, more focused Georgia Tech “brand” to the outside world that improves public awareness of the institute’s collective strengths in game-related research.
Games@GaTech will help create a more unified research community, advancing interdisciplinary research, and facilitating better exposure to funding opportunities, tech transfer and industry partnerships.
In addition to Magerko and Pearce, the Games@Tech Steering Committee includes Mark Riedel, Ellen Yi-Luen Do, Aaron Lanterman, and Bruce Walker
