The Philosophy of Computer Games 2014 conference will take place in Istanbul, 13-15 November 2014. The theme this year is “Freedom in Play”, and confirmed keynote speaker is Thomas Hurka, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Toronto.

The concept of freedom is central in the shaping of game experiences and game cultures. It is a lens through which we can critically evaluate the philosophical, cultural and political relevance of computer games, as an art form and as a way of life. Four areas are indicated in the CfP: 1) The nature of freedom in games, 2) The experience of freedom in games, 3) Games and existential concepts of freedom, 4) Political and ethical freedom.
