Hi all,

Just got back from DiGRA, a conference for game academics/researchers.

http://www.gamesconference.org/


I did notice some SIG-relevant sessions on the program. But, sadly  
did not have time to attend any of those sessions.

Perhaps someone from the SIG can scan the program and build a list of  
the accessibility related papers and speakers.

http://www.gamesconference.org/digra2005/papers.php

For example:
http://www.gamesconference.org/digra2005/viewabstract.php?id=24
http://www.gamesconference.org/digra2005/viewabstract.php?id=213

(And, I do believe that most have their email listed)...

I am sure that academics involved in this area would be happy to get  
involved with the SIG.

Just a suggestion :)

Jason
