The "Center for Computer Games & Virtual Worlds" will be an interdisciplinary effort led by the School of Information and Computer Science, and featuring an initial 20 faculty from across disciplines. The goals of the Center, according to Senior Research Scientist Walter Scacchi, are:
"“We now realize that scientific and cultural achievements go beyond the current concepts of what games and virtual worlds are good for, or how they may be developed or applied,” Scacchi said. “The center will support our research in demonstrating the sustained ability to invent and reinvent the future of computer games and virtual worlds.”"
