What a difference a week makes! The situation now is this. We have 16 abstracts and 12 promises of abstracts. The list is starting to look quite good — except for Denmark, which is sorely underrepresented. The deadline is tomorrow.

Föreningen visionära vetenskapsmäns årliga kongress
Det Sista Kapitlet

Once Upon a Time
A game by The Harmaasudet
En stilla middag med familjen

There is still time to put together an abstract. We need to know that there are a sufficient amount of protos from the game and we need to see a few of these as an example. The text of the abstract need not be long, an email is enough. It should contain a short list of what the article would cover (production, events, players, way it was produced, props, organization management, what?) and some context (for example what it relates to, how the players approached, did it have an impact, was it inspired by something, does it have a connection to theory/fine art/comics/film/urban exploration) and an angle (why this game is especially interesting).
The point of the abstract is to show that there are photos, that the person who is interested in covering the game has thought the case through once and is committed.
