Game Developer Conference 2019 organizer UBM Tech Game Network has announced that they are now accepting submissions to present lectures.
UBM Tech Game Network, the organizers of the Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2019, are accepting submissions to present lectures, roundtables, panels and tutorials from now until Thursday, August 16th at 11:59 PM PT. This will be the 33rd edition of GDC, the world’s largest and longest-running event for game developers, and organizers are keen to feature cutting-edge insights from experts across the game industry. GDC 2019 is returning to the Moscone Center in San Francisco, March 18-22, 2019.
This is the initial call for submissions, which encompasses everything intended for the Main Conference Tracks on Wednesday-Friday, as well as day-long tutorials taking place Monday and Tuesday at GDC 2019. Proposals can be submitted via the official GDC website. Those interested in submitting for any of the GDC Summits (AI, Community Management, Educators, Game Narrative, Mobile, Indie, or UX) or VRDC (all of which take place on the Monday & Tuesday of the event) or Friday’s Game Career Seminar should know that the call for submissions will open later: August 30 through October 10, 2018. Select call for submissions for other Tutorials will also be open later in the year.
The GDC Advisory Board is currently seeking submissions from game developers with expertise in any of the following tracks: Advocacy; Audio; Business & Marketing; Design; Production & Team Management; Programming; and Visual Arts. Those interested should first review the submission guidelines and track topics prior to submitting.
The GDC 2019 submission process is divided into a three-phase system:
- Phase I: open call for submissions and initial advisory board review
- Phase II: submission declines or conditional Phase 2 acceptances sent, pending the submission of additional requested materials for advisory board review
- Phase III: review of Phase 2 resubmissions and final acceptances and declines sent
The GDC Advisory Board will review and determine submissions based on the criteria of concept, depth, organization, credentials and takeaway. GDC organizers aim to achieve diversity of voice, experience and perspective. When considering who would be best to speak on behalf of a company or department, it is strongly encouraged to take this goal into consideration.
