Good news, would-be GDC speakers: 2017 Game Developers Conference organizers are now accepting Independent Games Summit talk submissions through Friday, September 23rd.
This is important, because the Independent Games Summit is intended to be the place for the independent game developer at GDC. It features lectures, postmortems and roundtables from notable independent game creators, including many former and current Independent Games Festival finalists and winners.
The Independent Games Summit seeks to achieve diversity of voice, experience and perspective, while highlighting the best and brightest in indie development. Discussion topics range from game design philosophy to art, programming, distribution, business, marketing, and much more.
The 2017 IGS will again use a main, large room alongside a simultaneous second smaller room - for deep-dive subjects and focused talks that we would otherwise be unable to fit into the program. Please submit with this in mind!
Organizers are soliciting the following topics for the 2017 program:
GDC 2017 takes place Monday, February 27 to Friday, March 3, 2017 at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, California, and will once again host thousands of game developers from all around the world for a week of learning, networking and inspiration.
