In most countries, videogame culture had its point of origin in videogame arcades. Playing videogames was a public social experience. But in some countries, e.g. in Germany, the early videogame history in large part took place at home, or videogames were played in the arcades when families were on holiday abroad.
Thus, the conference seeks to draw attention to various sites of gaming, taking their particularities as well as their integration in a larger national, social or cultural environment into account.
