Conference room location

April 1, 2007

DiGRA2007 will be held in the University of Tokyo, finally. The University of Tokyo has the longest history in Japanese universities and new challenges in game study including establishing DiGRA JAPAN.

The problem of the University of Tokyo as conference place is that it’s far from major hotels. We will prepare the guide person at the nearest subway station.
