Academic Seminar

Ropecon 2024 Academic Seminar

Since 2018, academics and scholars have gathered in Ropecon’s Academic Seminar to discuss their research and present their papers to their peers in gaming studies. 

The topic of this year’s academic seminar, “Monsters!”, reflects the theme of Ropecon 2024. The seminar is a “working paper” event, and we encourage submissions from both papers and studies that are early in their conception as well as those that are in their final phases – both can benefit from the peer discussion. 

The seminar is held on Friday July 19th 2024 in Messukeskus, where Ropecon itself starts straight after the Academic Seminar.
