CALL FOR PAPERS AND SYMPOSIA
The 15th International Conference on Gambling & Risk Taking
Caesars Palace | Las Vegas, Nevada | May 27-31, 2013
The Institute for the Study of Gambling and Commercial Gaming at the University of Nevada Reno, in partnership with the International Gaming Institute at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, invites paper and symposium submissions for The 15th International Conference on Gambling & Risk Taking, which will be held at Caesars Palace Resort and Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, from May 27 to May 31, 2013. Based on our experience with prior conferences, we anticipate over 200 academics, researchers, and gaming professionals from throughout the world will present and discuss findings of their work, covering a wide variety of gambling-related topics over the five days of the Conference.
Since the First International Conference in 1974, the focus of this Conference has been on the presentation of high quality, objective, scientifically based research that contributes to the knowledge base of gambling, as well as the formation of responsible public policy and public perceptions of gaming industries, and competent regulation and management of gaming operations. This is an important conference—important to the industry, to policy makers, to society at large, and to those who need a better understanding of the often complex issues surrounding gambling. Papers and proposals for Symposium Sessions are invited in the following areas related to gambling and commercial gaming:

The objective of the Conference is to stimulate research and facilitate discussion and understanding about gambling and commercial gaming throughout the world. Over the past five decades society has witnessed many forms of gambling that have become increasingly legalized and legitimized. Commercial gaming has played an increasing role in communities, among entertainment options, and within the public policy discourse. In the past generation, many individual forms of commercial gaming have evolved, reached maturity, and struggled to reinvent themselves in response to competitive pressures and changing consumer preferences and technological capabilities. Today, policy makers continue to seek answers to difficult questions that gambling—as a business, as an activity, as a vice, and as a public policy tool—presents to society. The International Conferences date back to 1974, and are recognized as the premier venue that brings together academic, research and policy experts from all over the world, representing a diverse array of disciplines and points of view, to examine and analyze gambling from many perspectives. Leaders and representatives from commercial gaming industries, academia, research organizations, regulatory agencies, and the helping services—as well as gamblers and the general public—will gather in Las Vegas to present and evaluate research, discuss new trends and technologies, and explore the changes and challenges created by the increased presence and economic importance of commercial gaming industries throughout the world.
