ESCoNS Set for September 19 - 20

September 7, 2011 -

Organizers of the first annual Entertainment Software and Cognitive Neurotherapeutics Society (ESCoNS) Meeting announced that it will take place September 19 -20, 2011 at the UCSF Mission Bay Conference Center in San Francisco, California. The two-day event brings together medical professionals and researchers whose work focuses on improving "neural system functioning through computerized training" using simulations and video games.

The event will feature a number of talks and panels on ways in which this scientific field of study informs treatment development for "impaired neural systems in neurological and neuropsychiatric illness" and investigates ways in which cognitive training approaches can make use of advances in entertainment software as therapeutic tools.

The event also brings together scientists and entertainment software industry professionals to discuss innovative collaborations and new funding methods to support the development of this emerging field.

For a detailed schedule of talks and panels, check out www.escons.org.

SleakerBut where have all the Ethics gone?08/21/2014 - 9:08am
Sleaker@EZK - one of the bigger things is that since Mojang has owned Bukkit for 2 years now, people contributing to the project have basically been doing work for them pro-bono. On top of never formalizing support. They hid the fact probably to prevent support08/21/2014 - 9:07am
SleakerIf you've played on a server with mods/plugins, you've almost for sure played on a Bukkit-based server.08/21/2014 - 8:56am
SleakerHere's Bukkit's explanation attempt at shutting down due to EULA changes: http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/bukkit-its-time-to-say.305106/08/21/2014 - 8:55am
SleakerEZK - it's the largest server mod for MC, in actuality without it minecraft for sure would not have been as popular (#1 game now).08/21/2014 - 8:54am
SleakerTo the point that it seems they have completely lost what it means to be for-community, and having transparency. Along with dumping restrictive EULA's onto people.08/21/2014 - 8:53am
E. Zachary KnightWhat is Bukkit and why should I care?08/21/2014 - 8:53am
SleakerMinecraft community exploded again today. Apparently Mojang owns all of Bukkit, and never put out a statement saying as such 2 years ago when they acquired them. I have to say, their transition from indie has been rough.08/21/2014 - 8:52am
