The general theme of Asian experiences in simulation/gaming includes the following, among other topics:

Although simulation/gaming practice, theory and research have probably developed more explicitly in Europe and North America than in most Asian contexts, authors (especially, non-Asians) should avoid any assumption that the norm for simulation/gaming is the western (mainly America-European) model, and that other simulation/gaming methods, uses and approaches are to be seen as "different from" this western model.

Contributions from a variety of perspectives are invited, for example, empirical research (experimental to ethnographic), discussion papers, descriptions of games, literature reviews, resource surveys, ready-to-use simulation/games.
