Three separate conferences seek lecture and panel ideas for 2011 events

GDC Europe, Develop in Brighton and the Montreal International Game Summit are all making calls for speakers for this year's events.

The third annual Game Developers Conference Europe will take place this August in Cologne, Germany - as usual running alongside the gamescom trade and public expo. This year however there will be four additional summits on the subject of social games, smartphone & tablet games, independent games, and community management.

The call for lecture submissions includes main conference tracks in business & marketing; game design, production, programming; and visual arts. Suggestions from speakers will be considered up until April 5, with further information available via the official website.

2011's Develop conference is due to take place this July in Brighton, and is also now calling for speaker submissions before the deadline of March 31. Presentations can be either panels or lectures, but must fit into one of the existing seven categories: art, audio, business, coding, design, evolve (new platforms and markets), and production.

Again, further information is available on the official Develop website.

Finally, the eighth annual Montreal International Game Summit (MIGS) has announced that it will be held on November 1-2, 2011. The MIGS team is seeking local and international industry experts to contribute to its five tracks: arts & VFX, business, design, production, and Technology.

Last year MIGS attracted 80 worldwide speakers, with this year's event adopting the slogan of "Montreal Shines". Session ideas must be submitted before April 4 at the official website.
