Abstract

Welcome to the Proceedings of the First International Conference in Serious Games and Virtual Worlds which was held on 23-24th March 2009 in Coventry, United Kingdom. Serious Games are non-leisure applications of games technologies and virtual worlds are three dimensional immersive environments allowing for social interactions. The recent use of these previously leisure and entertainment-based technologies in new application areas, such as for education, for training, for health and environmental purposes, present the academic and industrial communities with new opportunities and challenges that are both technological and social.
