VS Games 2017 Paper I

On the 6th of September 2017, I published a co-authored paper at the 9th International Conference on Virtual Worlds and Games for Serious Applications (VS-Games 2017), which was held in Athens, Greece. The paper was entitled "A Serious Game for Understanding Ancient Seafaring in the Mediterranean Sea".

The paper presents a serious game which aims to provide better insight and understanding of seaborne trade mechanisms and seafaring practices in the eastern Mediterranean during the Classical and Hellenistic periods. The game incorporates probabilistic geospatial analysis of possible ship routes through the re-use and spatial analysis from open GIS maritime.
