The objective of this symposium is to gather young researchers, active in the domain of game-based applications for the assessment, training, and treatment of mental health (G4MH), located in Flanders and the Netherlands. The symposium gives young GEMH researchers the opportunity to present their work and to meet other young researchers working in the same field. Ultimately, the aim of this symposiums is to promote the development of a supportive community of young researchers and to foster the spirit of concerted research.
The symposium is open to all young researchers (PhDs, Postdoc, master students). The format includes a poster session and oral presentations.
During the oral presentations, invited researchers will present their work and will be offered constructive feedback and new perspectives from their peers. These oral presentations are organized in three rounds where four researchers present their work (10 minutes) and receive feedback (10 minutes). Each presenter will get feedback from two reviewers. The latter will thoroughly read the abstract, and prepare questions or remarks. Of course, everyone is invited to contribute to the conversation. Questions and remarks that are found to apply more broadly will be noted and revisited during the panel session at the end of the symposium.
The poster session will be held during lunch and consist of an informal information exchange.
Researchers can also attend the symposium without an oral presentation or poster contribution. However, registration is mandatory.
