The European Conference on Games Based Learning was established 12 years ago. It has been held in Austria, Scotland, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Greece, Norway and France to mention only a few countries that have hosted. ECGBL is generally attended by participants from more than 40 countries and attracts an interesting combination of academic scholars, practitioners, game designers and individuals who are engaged in various aspects of games-based learning and serious games. The best papers presented at this conference will be published by the Electronic Journal of e-Learning among others. The conference is host to The 7th International Educational Games Competition.
