Ludo2020 Virtual Conference Series

Thank you very much for your patience while we have been organizing alternative plans for Ludo2020. We now have some news to share.

Rather than a full conference at once, we are pleased to announce a short series of Ludo sessions at weekly intervals, on Saturdays. They will be streamed for free online using Microsoft Teams; no account is necessary, just sign up with your name and email address using the form below and you will be emailed a link to the live stream shortly before each session.

We hope this will give you more flexibility for timing and preparation, as well as being an easier time commitment, and, perhaps, something fun and exciting for a few weeks through these difficult times.

We will have up to three papers per session, with presentations pre-recorded ahead of a live Q&A with the presenter.

25th April
Stephen Tatlow – Speak of the Devil: Player Voice in Video Game Marketing
Ariel Huang – Characterizing Generative Inscription from a Ludomusicological Perspective

2nd May
Anselm Weber – Alien Buster: A 3D Audio Game  
Costantino Oliva – Identifying Musical Situations in Digital Games
John Vinzant – Sed Non Eodem Modo: Comparing Ludomusicology to Ninteenth-Century Musikwissenschaft

9th May
Michael Austin – Beeps, Boops and Boyz: Sonic Representations of Gay Men in Video Games
Aaron Price – From Grinding to Grooving: An Investigation of Motoi Sakuraba’s RPG Combat Music
Andra Ivanescu – Transmedia Storytelling, Marketing and the Live Performance of Riot Games Music

The timings are all 4–6pm, Central European Time.
We hope you can join us!

Please review the SSSMG Code of Conduct here.

Ludo2020 Update

Like many other event organizers all around the world, the committee have been closely monitoring the rapidly evolving public health situation. With WHO’s recent decision to declare the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic, and increasing travel restrictions across Europe in particular, we have decided with great regret to cancel the in-person conference this year. The University of Malta has simultaneously announced that they are cancelling or postponing all their events.

For delegates who have already registered, the University will reach out to you directly with full refunds; you don’t need to do anything. Unfortunately, we cannot provide refunds or support for privately booked travel and accommodation.

We are exploring alternative options including a digital conference and will announce further details in due course.
