IEEE Conference on Games (CoG) originates from IEEE Conference on Computational Intelligence and Games (CIG) and has been renamed to CoG since 2019. Games not only establish one of the most profitable industries worldwide, but also offer a general and challenging environment for the advance of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Computational Intelligence (CI). The annual IEEE Conference on Games (IEEE CoG) brings together leading researchers and practitioners from academia and industry in the field of games to discuss recent advances and explore future directions. It covers all topics in the field of games, from game design to game intelligence and game theory, including scientific, technical, engineering and societal aspects.

In addition to existing topics, this year we would like to draw participants’ attention to the progress of AI and CI in games, and discuss the potential directions of applying newest AI/CI theories, algorithms, methods, and concepts to the field of games and beyond. IEEE CoG 2022 will include presentations of peer-reviewed papers, invited talks by high-profile industry and academic leaders, panels, posters and demos. We welcome papers related to all aspects of games, including, but not limited to, the following broad subject areas:
