The University of Bradford, in cooperation with Bradford College, will host the 2010 Women In Games conference
in March. The UK-based event, now in its seventh year, promotes ethnic and gender diversity in the games industry.
Placing its focus on game development and related academia, the Women In Games 2010 conference will highlight research and technologies relating to games and women.
Conference organizers note that ethnic and gender diversity is particularly important at this stage of the industry's growth, as new consumers are more likely to be found in countries not traditionally associated with strong markets or sales.
"Technology is a global industry, and our students need to be ready for tomorrow," said Dr Ian Palmer, Dean of School of Computing at the University of Bradford.
"The University of Bradford is active in promoting games and technology to women and those traditionally not involved within the industry and we are passionately dedicated to celebrating diversity and confronting inequality."
The 2010 Women In Games conference will be held on March 25th and 26th at the University of Bradford campus in the United Kingdom.
