SICSA Research Challenge on Plant Health is hosting a workshop on Gamification for Tree and Plant Health at the University of Stirling on 18 & 19 August.
This workshop follows two scoping workshops on gamification, conducted in 2014 at Fera and in 2015 at Forestry Commission in Edinburgh (See report here).
We will bring together computer scientists and practitioners of gamification with experts and stakeholders in tree and plant health. The goals are:
- to raise awareness of gamification and its potential to help with tree and plant health protection;
- to inform gamification practitioners about concerns and needs within tree and plant health protection;
- to design one or more specific gamification projects;
- to put together a consortium for a funding bid in gamification for tree and plant health.
The workshop is funded by the Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance. A limited number of places are provided. Applications close on 8th July 2016. We will notify you of the result by 15th July 2016.
