      The Value of Esports

      The esports world has become a vast cultural force in recent years, transforming how people play games, creating new economies of participation, and re-framing the cultural conversation about gaming in society. But, what do we really know about what's happening in this world and what kind of evidence is there to support claims about the impact of esports on individuals and society? And what value do esports bring to society more widely? This event will gather together a maximum of 50 people to have in-depth conversations about the future of esports. Please reserve your place early and contact Professor Andy Miah at a.miah@salford.ac.uk if you'd like to introduce yourself in more detail. The event will not be a typical conference and will focus also on capturing content from the various experts in attendance to share widely after the event has finished. Attendees and speakers will have the opportunity to say things about esport they typically do not have the chance to say and it will bring together people from a wide range of perspectives, from game design to architecture. The principal aims of the event are: 1) Build collaboration across researchers and esports industry professionals; 2) Explore ideas for the future of esports; 3) Identify key areas of value creation arising from esports; 4) Establish a research agenda for the esports industry. For more information about the event's programme, please see below https://scicomm.space/the-value-of-esport We are grateful to our friends in the esports industry for conversation in the lead up to producing this event, notably The Esports Insider.
