// SBGames 2009:

Thinking About Convergence

SBGames is the annual symposium of the Special Commission of Games and Digital Entertainment of the Computing Brazilian Society (in Portuguese: Sociedade Brasiliera de Computação - SBC) dedicated to Research, Development, and Innovation in computer games, real time simulation, and new forms of digital entertainment. Since 2002, the symposium has been congregating scientists, artists, designers, entrepreneurs, educators, and students from universities, research centers, and industry. This year, the theme of the conference is “Thinking about Convergence”, reflecting the importance of bringing together all the medias and platforms (TV, cinema, computer, mobile devices), the impact of digital contents is becoming ubiquitous (i.e. in any object), and the implications of sharing solutions between several sectors (entertainment, defense, simulation industry, and education).
