CGAMES 2009 is one of the leading research conferences devoted to the advancement of the theory and practice of games development.

The annual event is organised by Professor Qasim Mehdi, from the University’s School of Computing and Information Technology. This year’s conference is taking place at the Galt House Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky, USA from Wednesday, July 29 until Sunday August 2.
