Building and updating on previous work presented at past games for health conferences this session delves into the various forms and functions that personal avatars are playing in games and especially in health and behavior.

Providing both recent research findings, and in-game examples the talk will cover ideas for avatar system design, and in-game use.

Attendees to the session will not only learn about underlying theories and outcomes from in-game avatars, but also creative approaches and uses that go beyond the mere idea of a human form embedded in a game world.
