Today we'd like to quickly remind you that organizers of the 2018 Game Developers Conference are still accepting Independent Games Summit talk submissions through Friday, September 29th at 11:59 pm Pacific!
Of course, officials are also accepting talks that would be a good fit for the Virtual Reality Developers Conference @ GDC (or just VRDC@GDC), the other GDC Summits, and the Game Career Seminar at GDC 2018, which is happening in San Francisco March 19-23 of next year.
However, we're highlighting the Independent Games Summit because it's 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 2018 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! We are soliciting the following topics for the 2018 program:
So if you want to speak at GDC 2018, submit your talk now! (For VRDC@GDC 2018, click here.) For more details on the submission process or GDC 2018 in general visit the show's official website, or subscribe to regular updates via Facebook, Twitter, or RSS.
Gamasutra and GDC are sibling organizations under parent UBM Americas
