Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The overall objectives of SeGAH 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. SeGAH 2019 will be held in Kyoto, Japan, from 5–7 August 2019. We believe that this Special Issue provides a chance of reaching even broader audiences to the authors of SeGAH 2019, who are therefore invited to submit extended versions of their papers to the Special Issue “Serious Games and Applications for Health” of the journal Information—an 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.
