Triangle Conference renames, calls for speakers

North Carolina event now known as East Coast Game Conference

The Triangle Game Conference in North Carolina has been rebranded as the East Coast Game Conference, intended to reflect its growing influence and catchment area.

The conference has also opened calls for speakers for the 2011 event, taking place in Raleigh on April 13-14, 2011. Submissions close on Friday, January 21, 2011.

"We are excited to be approaching this year's conference with a fantastic line-up of educational tracks and a fresh name and look," said John Austin, Conference Chairperson.

"At the conference's inception, our mission was to provide a platform for the Raleigh-Durham region's growing community of interactive entertainment companies and professionals. Following the inaugural two years of the conference, it became clear there was serious investment being made in the future of our state's game development and digital media industry, which broadened our perspective - reaching far beyond the Triangle region of North Carolina."

Three categories are open for application by speakers.

  • 1.Game Development - "Developers, artists, producers and designers are invited to share algorithms, engines, technology, techniques and best practices that today's game companies must cultivate to create immersive, engaging entertainment product. We particularly invite submissions on game technology for Android and iOS games."
  • 2.Advanced Learning and Visual Simulation - "We invite submissions on serious games, virtual worlds, social networks and other immersive technology that are used to inspire, educate and train the "next-gen" workforce, as well as game technologies and applications used for simulation and training in government, military and health care."
  • 3.Business of Games and Media Convergence - "'Gamification' is the hot topic as social networks, immersive media and innovative marketing converges with games. We invite submissions that discuss industry trends, emerging business models, international business opportunities, the impact of the economic recession and other topics relevant to executives and studio owners small and large."
