A Roman legend tells that Lisbon was founded by Ulysses since he stopped in the harbour there during his wandering voyage after the Trojan War. But it is a fact that the Romans made the city an important trading port and turned it into a great metropolis on the bank of the Tagus River. Later, when it was already the capital of the Portuguese nation, it was the point of departure for the voyages of discovery in the 1500s which found new lands for the world. Lisbon has a long history during the course of which it has absorbed many cultural influences. Constantly exposed to the latest knowledge, the city still managed to remain strongly attached to its roots and developed on a matrix of contrasts so that it has become a modern city that has not lost its historic ‘typicalness’.

And it is in this forward-looking city that we would like to hold the Second International Conference on Serious Games Development and Applications which will take place September 19-20, 2011. The conference will be organized by Instituto de Engenharia de Sistemas e Computadores Investigação e Desenvolvimento (INESC-ID). This Conference aims at collecting and disseminating information on video games technologies, design and development of serious games; to provide game designers and interdisciplinary communities with a peer-reviewed forum to discuss the state-of-the-art in computer games research, their ideas and theories, and innovative applications of video games; to explain cultural, social and scientific phenomena by means of computer games; to concentrate on the interaction between theory and application; to develop new methodologies in various application domains using games technologies; and to explore perspectives of future developments and innovative applications relevant to serious games and related areas.
