Gaming specialists from the United States are visiting Vietnam to discuss with students a number of issues that are important to their industry. During a stop at the port city of Da Nang, more than 1,000 students showed up for a conference on game developers and their techniques. Donald Marinelli, a professor of Drama and Arts Management at Carnegie Mellon University who co-directs the Entertainment Technology Center, led the panel, “The Achievements of the Game Developers.” Marinelli and the other gaming experts also discussed how games impact real life during an event for students from Van Lang University in Ho Chi Minh City. The Entertainment Technology Center is a partnership between Carnegie Mellon’s School of Computer Science and the College of Fine Arts that focuses on digital arts and entertainment. A training cooperation program between Carnegie Mellon and the Software Engineering Group of Vietnam is sponsoring the trip.
