Presented by the Game Research and User Experience SIG of the IGDA this roundtable will be run in two stages. In the first stage attendees will be split between experts and beginners in the field of Games Research and User Experience. Both groups will then be led through a series of audience driven topics and moderated by an experienced member of the Games Research and User Experience SIG. The roundtable will then end with both groups coming together for the final stage to share what each group discussed and share learnings. Potential topics of discussion will include discussion around the value of UR/UX and how to carry out, use, and interpret data coming from the area in relation to specific game design issues.


For those already working in User Research and User Experience the takeaway is a chance to meet with other experts in your area and share information and approaches. For folks who are just getting started the roundtable gives you a chance to find out what the field is about and to talk to folks already in the industry.

Intended Audience

Both those already working in User Research and User Experience and those who want to know more about it.
