Games for Health & Games Beyond Entertainment Week 2010 (#GFH2010)

Preparing for Games for Health 2010 on

Just recorded a 12 Seconds clip and posted it to Twitter about the Games for Health Conference in Boston, which will be part of the Games Beyond Entertainment Week and encompass Serious Games Festival & Conference, Out & About : The Mobile Serious Games Conference, 3rd Annual Games Accessibility Day, 3rd Annual Virtual Worlds & Health Day, Emerging Markets in Videogames Symposium, Serious Games Design & Development Bootcamp, and iPhone Design & Production Bootcamp. This is probably the biggest and most developed set of symposiums and bootcamps regarding Serious Games and Games For Health ever and we are all getting psyched for the many presentations, but more importantly the chance to meet up with colleagues and network like crazy!

In less than a week, we will putting the wraps on the biggest and best Games for Health Conference in  Boston, MA. With 6 different tracks including ExerGaming/Active Gaming, Games for Sensorimotor Rehab, Cognitive & Emotional Health and more, there will be plenty to see and do. Be sure to follow me on Twitter (@syangman) and this blog for more exciting details of the G4H 2010 and be sure to use the hashtag #GFH2010. Check out some highlights from last year’s conference and many of the great speakers we had lined up. 

This year’s line-up is massive especially with Dr. Richard Marks giving the Keynote on Opening Day. His talk called “The Mind-Body Experience of Sony Move: Relationships between Gaming, Play, Exercise, and More!” will explore the many hurdles Sony's developers faced trying to follow-up on the success of EyeToy and adding new peripherals for improved game-play.

Get pumped for the GFH 2010 & Games Beyond Entertainment Week May 24-27, 2010 in Boston.

Here are some photos from last year's incredible conference.

The Games for Health Project - Sixth Annual Games for Health Conference
Our biggest and most advance event ever promises to provide great insight to the growing worlds of exergaming/active games, health training games, disease management efforts, and much much more.  
Our conference platform provides attendees with great content, important networking opportunities, and a focus on providing opportunities to develop new projects and improve existing efforts.   In 2010 we are adding more defined and community led tracks and concentrating on greatly improving exhibits and non-session oriented content and activity.  
Our full schedule will be available later in 2010 but you can see the planned schedule outline now here
