  • 09/01/2018

Over a weekend, from Friday 2 (6pm) to Sunday 4 (6pm), on the campus of Talence (Domaine du Haut-Carré), multidisciplinary teams will develop games based on PhD thesis work: role-playing game, platform game, strategy game, puzzle game... everything works to raise awareness of your discipline, popularize some scientific notions and/or collect data produced by the players. This original and innovative format for scientific dissemination has been successfully developed in Grenoble and Paris, as testified by this video:
