It has been a very unique two years for everyone under COVID-19. But one thing that has remained consistent - the world's love of games, virtual/augmented reality, interactive film and broadcasting, eSports, and the expansive communities and cultures surrounding all forms of digital interactive entertainment. Please join us for this year's online event. Reflect on the year that has been, discuss the future of technology, and celebrate the emerging trends in global remote engagement in entertainment, education, health, politics, and so much more. Interactive Entertainment is Australasia's longest running games and digital entertainment conference. IE2022 will be held as satellite conference of the Australasian Computer Science Week (ACSW), organised by the Computing Research and Education Association of Australasia (CORE).  This year, all of ACSW will be run online.
