International conference series

The History of Games international conference series is a global initiative that seeks to act as a catalyst for academic research on gaming history. The conference brings together scholars, archivists, curators and enthusiasts in order to disseminate research / preservation initiatives and develop networks.

In 2024 we look forward to welcoming the History of Games conference to Birmingham City University in the UK. Please see our call for papers for more information around the conference theme, and details of how to submit an abstract.
