These workshops may consist of both invited and contributed papers that will highlight exciting new developments and currents trends of research.

- Panel & Tutorial Proposal

Tutorial proposals will be considered for half-day and full-day tutorials. Topics should have a direct relevance to the interest of ACE2010. Any other topic expected to be of special interest and relevance at the time of ACE2010 is also encouraged.

Panels should focus on emerging technologies, controversial issues, or unsolved problems in the Computer Entertainment Technology community to stimulate lively, thoughtful, and thought-provoking debate. We expect the panelists to actively engage the audience and help them gain a deeper understanding of the issues. The goal of a panel is to debate and thus panels should always reflect more than one point of view.

The ACE2010 game contest is a worldwide competition for students. It emphasizes on the engineering aspects of game development, not limited to programming. To take part in the competition, teams must register and follow the contest rules as outlined below. Teams submit full software products, covering the whole software development process.
