Welcome to the FNG2006 Website...
Well... the conference is finally over and the committee are finally beginning to relax!!!
We would like to thank everyone who attended the event for making it such a success. Many thanks to everyone who presented papers... I hope that you all found it worth while. Finally a special thank you to Andrew Monk for being the keynote speaker at this inaugrial event.
We would like this conference to run again in two years time and are now giving people/institutions the chance to put their names forward to host Fun 'n Games 2008. If you would be interested in doing so then please contact us to discuss this further.
