Welcome to the 6th European conference on Game-Based Learning (ECGBL 2012), a conference held in Cork city, and organized by University College Cork and Waterford Institute of Technology. The conference is sponsored by Fáilte Ireland and IGI-Global.

Throughout the years, ECGBL has been a great opportunity to foster the
exchange of new ideas among researchers and practitioners, and to
contribute to a better appreciation and a wider adoption of Game-Based
Learning (GBL) in Europe. It is therefore a great pleasure to host ECGBL 2012 in Cork,
to provide a European forum for discussions on the theme of GBL, to
support researchers, teachers and students, and contribute to more
engaging and effective teaching and learning practices.

ECGBL 2012, attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about GBL
by attending keynotes, presentations, workshops, and showcases, all
delivered by experts in the field. In addition to the conference
programme, participants will be able to enjoy Cork,
a city rich in tradition, history and culture, with many historical and
cultural attractions. We would like to thank the members of the
organising committee for their invaluable input and the sponsors for
their support, and we look forward to seeing you in Cork for an exciting ECGBL 2012.

Best Wishes,

Dr. Patrick Felicia, conference chair, Professor Grace Neville and Dr. Sabin Tabirca, programme co-chairs.
