The Game Developers Conference has put out the call for submissions to present lectures, roundtables and panels at the event taking place March 23 - 27 2009, at the Moscone Center, San Francisco.
The three-stage submission process is open from now through to August 11 and available through the GDC website.
The first stage will see hopeful speakers submit a basic plan and description, which the GDC advisory board will review and choose who will proceed to stage two, at which point submitters will be asked to prepare a complete presentation plan. Finally in the third stage, the advisory board will review all the presentation plans and make the final decisions.
"GDC's world-class reputation is built on the strength of its content, so we are always looking for new ways to keep the quality of that content as high as ever, and to find new ways to raise the bar year after year," said Meggan Scavio, director of the Game Developers Conference.
"To that end, we have reformatted our historically rigorous submission process to make the first steps more welcoming, and so that the advisory board can select the sessions that are most beneficial and relevant to the attendee. When submitting, keep in mind that GDC attendees are experts in their field. Tell them something they don't know."
