Location Based Games and Networking
Venue: National Physical Laboratory, Teddington
Date: 18th May 2010

Today, when you think of games on mobile devices, you think of static single person games. However there is a new breed of dynamic, interactive, multi-player, and networking games on the horizon. These are enabled by new platform technologies, higher processing power, improved graphics, virtual worlds, and location based technologies.

At this FREE one day seminar in association with the Mobile Data Association we will be taking a peek into the future with speakers from across the value chain:

Microsoft: We will be hearing about the recently unveiled Windows Phone 7, which includes an array of gaming facilities.

Polymath Insight: How to generate more engaging, responsive and fun experiences for users of location based gaming and networking using location and positioning technologies.

Simon Games: will be talking about Real People, Real Places, and possibly their latest game ‘Guess Who’.

Palringo: will share with us Location as a key component of presence and a social enabler.
