GDC Europe 2016 is right around the corner, and today organizers are proud to highlight a talk about how the creators of the popular massively multiplayer game EVE Online integrated citizen-driven scientific research work into their game.
CCP Games' Bergur Finnbogason and MMOS chief Attila Szantner will do just that in a talk entitled "'Project Discovery': How Citizen Science Got Into 'EVE Online.'"
The pair will explain how this project is just the first implementation of the "Massively Multiplayer Online Science" concept, and how it was realized in February of this year through collaboration between CCP, MMOS and the Human Protein Atlas.
They'll explain what they learned from the process, dig into the various challenges they faced and highlight the work that EVE Online players have done (through Project Discovery) to advance the state of science.
More details on this and all other announced talks are now available in the online GDC Europe 2016 Session Scheduler, where you can begin to build your conference week and later export it to the up-to-the-minute GDC Mobile App!
GDC Europe 2016 will also continue to offer business and matchmaking opportunities to all attendees with a developer-focused Expo Floor area and networking events throughout the show. For more information, please visit the GDC Europe website.
