|Track / Format:||Fair Play Summit|
|Overview:||Today's games and virtual worlds give players ever-advancing ways to customize their characters, extending not only to their name and play style but also their personal appearance and voice. These customizations are powerful tools for increasing immersion and giving players a choice over what details of their physical self they're comfortable revealing, but they also entail potential risks of identity impersonation/theft, cultural toxicity, and diversity loss. A prestigious panel of game developers, technologists, academics and community thinkers will discuss the evolving technologies of self-transformation, and consider strategies for maximizing their positive impact on virtual communities.|
