Women In Games Conference announces keynotes

The organisers of this year's Women In Games conference have announced the keynote speakers, while extending the speaker submission deadline.

Keynote speakers at this year's conference will include Karen Brennan of Scratch and MIT, Sara de Freitus of Serious Games, Microsoft's Eileen Brown, Bioware's Karen Clark, and Sony's Paulina Bozek.

Persons interested in submitting a talk, or offering to participate in a panel, now have until June 23. The organisers are keen to have more offers on the themes "Dressing up Programming" and "Technology in Schools" in particular.

The Women In Games conference encourages research and seeks to promote careers for women within the games industry. It welcomes participants from both industry and academia, and provides a forum for presentation and discussion of issues relating to all aspects of women's involvement in games. Men are welcome to participate.

The conference, co-organised by Rare Ltd and the Computer Science Department of the University of Warwick, will take place at the University on September 10-12.
