UC Irvine establishes Center for Computer Games & Virtual Worlds

— Irvine, Calif., September 1, 2009 —

UC Irvine’s Donald Bren School of Information & Computer Sciences has established the Center for Computer Games & Virtual Worlds, led by ICS Associate Dean Magda El Zarki and senior research scientist Walt Scacchi of the UCI Institute for Software Research.

The center’s goal is to expand campuswide research activities that draw upon UCI’s strengths spanning the social and technological aspects of games and virtual worlds. More than 20 faculty members from computer science, arts, humanities, social science and education will collaborate in the center.

..I’d love to see the University of Cincinnati establish something similar. And I want to work there. 😉
