Simulation & Gaming: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Theory, Practice and Research has served, for nearly four decades, as the leading international forum for the exploration and development of simulation/gaming and experiential learning methodologies used in education, training, consultation and research.
We are preparing a special issue of S&G, to explore the application of experiential learning methodologies, including simulation/gaming, to Advanced Manufacturing.
We invite you to submit an article for this special issue of S&G on Advanced Manufacturing. The special issue will be a forum for authors to share their research, experience and materials in modeling, simulation, gaming and experiential learning techniques in the area of Advanced Manufacturing. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
Contributions from a variety of perspectives are invited, for example, empirical research (experimental to ethnographic), conceptual papers, descriptions of games, literature reviews, resource surveys, and ready-to-use simulation/games.
If you would like to contribute, please send a one- to two-page outline including:
- Your name and contact information (address, phones, faxes, e-mail addresses).
- A working title and abstract.
