The third workshop on Procedural Content Generation in Games (PCG 2012)

Organized in conjunction with the Foundational of Digital Games Conference (FDG 2012)


Julian Togelius is Assistant Professor at the Center for Computer Games Research, IT University of Copenhagen, Denmark. He works on all aspects of computational intelligence and games, on geometric generalization of stochastic search algorithms and on evolutionary reinforcement learning. His current main research directions involve search-based procedural content generation in games, automatic game design, and fair and relevant benchmarking of game AI through competitions. He is also the chair of the IEEE CIS Technical Committee on Games, and an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Computational Intelligence and Games. Togelius holds a BA from Lund University, an MSc from the University of Sussex, and a PhD from the University of Essex.

Joris Dormans is lecturer and researcher affiliated with the game development program at the Amsterdam University of Applied sciences. His research focus is game design methodology and procedural content, with a particular interest in how procedural content generation can be used to validate design methodology. Dormans is also an independent and freelance designer of board and video games. Dormans holds a MA from the Free University of Amsterdam and will defend his PhD from the University of Amsterdam in January 2012.
