GCDC announces its first top speakers

GC Developer Conference (GCDC)
(21 - 23 August 2006)

As Europe's leading developer conference, this year's GCDC is bigger and more international. From 21 to 23 August 2006, hundreds of conference delegates and speakers are expected from Germany and abroad.

"GCDC is a wonderful conference and an exciting gathering of talented developers where the passion of the European game industry really shines through", says Bob Bates, chairman of the IGDA.

Apart from Bates, others at the conference will include David Freeman (CEO of the Freeman Group), Don L. Daglow (President at Stormfront Studios Inc.), David Smith (Managing Director of Interactive Selection), Christopher Schmitz (Executive Producer of CDV Software), Sean Kauppinen (Director of Kohnke Communications), Graham Hopper (Senior Vice President Buena Games Worldwide) as well as Sven Liebich (Art Director at Phenomic Game Developer) and Jeff Hilbert (President at Digital Development Management).

Key subject areas will be development, business and science, each introduced by a special international keynote address. In addition, programming will be an important "next-generation topic".

22 June is the final date for notification of additional topics (Call for Papers), as well as the deadline for interested students who would like to provide support services to the conferences at the GCDC (Call for Student Assistants). It will unfortunately be impossible to give consideration to submissions received any later than this date.
