On the theme of
Internet-mediated simulation/gaming

for a special issue of
Simulation & Gaming: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Theory, Practice and Research

Recent advances in computer and telecommunications technology have opened doors to new and versatile simulation games. The Internet and web-based technologies have added a new dimension to the world of gaming. Rather than being restricted to one room, or one computer in some cases, games can now be designed and played across geographical boundaries. Since a crucial component of every simulation and game is the technological environment where it is run, the advent of new technology is changing the world of gaming in ways not seen in the past. This special issue will explore the advent of the Internet and the World Wide Web and its effect on simulation and gaming in all areas of business and the social sciences. The issue will include theoretical papers, empirical studies, and reviews of commercial products and developmental tools in this area. An earlier issue of Simulation and Gaming (vol. 30, no. 1, March 1999) was devoted to Internet-based simulation and games.

The special issue will include (but is not limited to) the following areas of research: - Design, development, and use of Internet and Web-based simulations and games in all areas of business and the social sciences - Theoretical and empirical studies using Internet or Web-based simulations and games - Review of existing Internet and Web-mediated simulations Contributions from a variety of perspectives are invited, for example, empirical research (experimental to ethnographic), discussion papers, description of games, and literature reviews.

Interested authors are invited to submit an abstract, not exceeding 500 words, of their proposed work for initial review. Accepted proposals will be asked to submit a full paper. These papers should strictly follow the Simulation & Gaming Author Guidelines. The entire review process will be managed electronically.

For a timetable, please contact the Guest Editor.
