Heartland Gaming Expo renamed to focus on simulation and gaming in 2019

The University of Tulsa will host the 2019 Computer Simulation and Gaming Conference April 12-13 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Allen Chapman Student Union. The event is free and open to the public and will highlight computer simulation through simulation and graphic competitions, a computer animation festival, digital art show and simulation showcase.

Formerly named the Heartland Gaming Expo, the re-branded Computer Simulation and Gaming Conference aims to bring together students, educators, professionals and enthusiasts for two days of learning, innovation, networking and gaming.

The event will include a conference on April 12 and a competition/exhibition on April 13. Conference attendees will participate in bring-your-own-laptop workshops, hands-on demonstrations and inspiring presentations from industry professionals. The competition/exhibition portion is one of the largest game development competition in the central United States where students will have an opportunity to exhibit one of their game development and design entries.

“The field of computer simulation and gaming is more than just video games. It’s a blend of creative arts, computer science and technology,” said CSGC Coordinator Akram Taghavi-Burris. “The goals of our event are to increase awareness around the simulation and gaming industry and other emerging fields in creative technology while also providing professional development to individuals already working or studying in these fields.”
