The organisers of the Nordic Game conference have announced the first batch of speakers to have signed up for this year's event.
The speakers will include Sony producer Paulina Bozek, who is best known for her work on hit PS2 series SingStar. There will also be a presentation from Greg LoPiccolo and Ryan Lesser of Harmonix - the studio behind international smash Guitar Hero.
Matsuura Masaya, producer of music-themed titles Parappa the Rapper and Vib Ribbon, will be making an appearance alongside Kouno Tsutomu, whose credits include Ico and LocoRoco.
This year's Nordic Game, which has the theme of 'Games Community', will focus on the growth of online gaming and how it will become increasingly important as the next console cycle gets underway. It will also look at how different sectors of the industry will be affected, from developers and publishers to retailers and press.
Nordic Game 2007 will take place from May 15 - 16 at the MalmÃ¶ Exhibition and Convention Center. For more information, visit NordicGame.com.
