I suspect the reason you haven't found much is that you don' really know what you're looking for; I know I don't.

I'm going to send you to Tom Sloper's site for general info and Gamasutra for articles, in the hope that one of them is what you're looking for.

Some books to check out -

A Theory of Fun by Raph Koster, an excellent book with insight into games in general with a very extensive set of "Notes" that will lead you to tons and tons of academic studies and reports. (An incredibly fun read as well.)

Rules of Play by Katie Salen and Eric Zimmerman, a comprehensive scholarly approach to games and design, is published by MIT Press.

Game Design Complete by Patrick O'Luanaigh, a good overview of practical game design as it relates to making videogames. The book has lots of short interviews with various experts in their respective fields.

No, James.
You're not going to find it in an IEEE dissertation.
Read those books the other guy listed. And read the ones at http://www.sloperama.com/advice/lesson8.htm, if you want to learn about game design.
