An Interdisciplinary Journal of Theory, Practice and Research

Special issue of
This is a time when the scientific and academic communities must focus on an issue of utmost concern - climate change, and the ensuing plight of our planet and of humanity.
This symposium (special issue) of Simulation & Gaming: An Interdisciplinary Journal will explore the numerous pedagogical and investigative methods employed to examine climate change – methods that cross disciplines, from the natural and geo sciences, through social sciences, to education. Climate change is a quintessential issue requiring rigorous analysis and careful understanding by scientists, educators, policy makers and global citizens.
We are seeking submissions from multiple disciplines and perspectives, employing a variety of methods to understand and teach a broad variety of climate change dimensions – process, causes, consequences and responses – social, economic and geopolitical impacts, such as international migration, reconfiguration of states, poverty, trade wars, wars, etc.
We encourage articles related to climate change involving such methods as:
· games, role-plays, simulations, simulation/games, experiential learning exercises, case studies, etc.;
· internet-based games and simulations, digital games, serious games, etc.;
· modeling, game theory, computer simulation, etc.;
· virtual reality, augmented reality, virtual environments, etc.
Accepted articles will be published relatively fast electronically (and thus count as a published article) before the actual printed symposium appears in print. Please send to each of the Guest Editors a one- to two-page outline proposal (.doc, not .docx) containing the following elements:
· Your name, e-mails, phone, address, etc.
· A working title, an abstract and a plan for the proposed paper.
· You may, if you wish, also send copies of any relevant already-published articles of yours.
