International Workshop on Network and Systems Support for Games (NetGames)
NetGames brings together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry across the globe to present their latest research on the challenges of today’s networked games, and to further understand the requirements and explore the possibilities of future generations of networked games.
NetGames will also have a keynote and panel discussions with participants (or invited talks) from both academia and industry.
