The International Conference on E-learning and Games (Edutainment) has over the last decade become a major international event for academics, practitioners and industry experts which combines knowledge dissemination and exchange in the areas of education and entertainment. Edutainment stands for education and entertainment, and the event covers not only research-related issues for fields such as game-based learning but also the aspects of learning experiences which may be gained from different types of digital entertainment.
