Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The overall objectives of SeGAH 2017 are the discussion and sharing of knowledge, experiences and scientific and technical results, related to state-of-the-art solutions, technologies and applications of serious games in health and healthcare, as well as the demonstration of advanced products and technologies for health. We believe that SeGAH which will be held in Perth, Australia, from 2–4 April, 2017, will further enlighten the audience of this conference which will effectively promote submission of more stimulating articles. Authors of SeGAH 2017 proceedings papers are therefore invited to submit extended versions of their papers with new input/angles to the Special Issue “Serious Games and Applications for Health” of the journal Information—Open Access Information Science Journal (I-OAISJ). However, authors interested in extending their conference papers must be aware that the final submitted manuscript must provide a minimum of 50% new content and not exceed 30% copy/paste from the proceedings paper. Each manuscript will be blind reviewed by I-OAISJ academic editors.
