Creative industry has been a continuous growing economic sector in the world. The videogame industry alone is larger than the film and music industries together. Innovation, led by industry and academia, has been a powerful engine for constantly offering better experiences to the users, in both the entertainment and the corporate worlds.
The IEEE Colombian Caribbean Section and Universidad del Norte are organizing this virtual conference, for the first time, to open a space for researchers, private sector and government to discuss the challenges related to innovation and commercial advances in the creative industries related to videogames, multimedia, animation and multiple realities, which has a great potential for impacting society and industry in a positive way by creating not only games but interactive solutions for education, training, health, politics, art, industrial operation, logistics, among other applications. Barranquilla, young city and modern since its foundation, has been the main development pole for the Caribbean region of Colombia, and it is open to adopt and design digital interactive solutions for the future cities all around the world.
