The First International Conference on Serious Games 2014 is held at the Quest Conference Estate, conveniently located in the business sector of Vanderbijlpark, Vaal Triangle. Only one hour from OR Tambo International. The conference is held on 27th to 29th August 2014.
Serious games can range from actively engaging exergaming and virtual 3D simulations to sit-down computer and video games. Although serious games go further than pure enjoyment, they leverage gaming elements in order to produce learning across in an entertaining fashion. However, a recent meta-analysis and overview on the value of serious games as a learning instrument have stated a lack of empirical and methodical evidence to decisively support the concept of games based knowledge acquirement. Furthermore, we are thriving in an era of pervasive computing where practically any item can serve as a processing device that is connected to vast networks of another computing device. Harnessing this ambient intellect will bring serious games to large amounts of users who would otherwise not be capacitated or aware to enjoy the benefits of games based learning.
Researchers are therefore invited in this exciting field to make use of this conference to share your findings on serious games and their effectiveness with the serious games community.

The conference will be a platform to showcase Agile software development in an African framework.

They will share their own experiences and information with their peers from other regions of Africa.
A range of expert tutorial workshops and sessions will be given by African and international experts. The spotlight will be on participation, collaboration and information sharing. A range of experts will present keynote talks on a range of relevant topics in the first session. This will be followed by a panel discussion.

The 2014 PAA/SAfA conference theme is ‘African Archaeology without Frontiers’, and will cover all aspects of African archaeology and all periods from the earliest hominins to the historical period. This Conference will be held at The University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg from the 14th to 18th of July.
The Pan-African Association of Archaeology and Related Studies (PAA) was established in Kenya at the instigation of none other than Louis Leakey, who became the organizing secretary of the 1st Congress, which took place in Nairobi in January 1947. At that ground-breaking Nairobi meeting, Johannesburg was nominated as the host of the second Congress, but the Nationalist government of South Africa which came to power in 1948 withdrew its support for this initiative and the second Congress went to Algiers instead. The aims are to bring together Africanist archaeologists and colleagues in a forum for the exchange of information and ideas; to create contacts between students, researchers and practitioners across Africa in multiple disciplines; to forge links and friendships; and to facilitate and promote inter-African collaboration.
This conference will cover all aspects of African archaeology and all periods from the earliest hominins to the historical period, and the official languages of the conference will be English and French. We are expecting over 500 delegates from Africa, Europe and North America, and among other things we are hoping that this joint meeting will serve to showcase South African resources to potential post-graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and research associates from across the continent and beyond.
