China GDC Announces Open Call For Submissions

By on

I got this news from the GDC committee. I love how they want me to post their press releases but couldn’t invite me to GDC this year. Maybe China will extend an invite? Here’s the full release:


Second Gathering of Top Chinese and International Developers Will Return
to Shanghai in October with Strong Government Endorsement

SAN FRANCISCO-April 20, 2009-The call for submissions to present
lectures, tutorials, and panels at the 2009 Game Developers
Conference(r) China (GDC China) is open now through May 22, 2009. The
2nd conference dedicated to the art, science and business of games –
presented by Think Services, a Division of United Business Media-
returns to the Shanghai Convention Center October 11-13. Session
proposals can be submitted via the official GDC China website at

Backed by the Ministry of Culture of the P. R. China (MOC), GDC China
will bring new insight to the expansive Chinese game development
industry-uniting the current generation of Chinese developers to share
their ideas with local professionals and global pundits. GDC China will
hold conference tracks on Global Game Development, Online Games, Visual
Arts, Audio, Mobile, and Independent Games.

“The success of our event in 2007 demonstrated the enthusiasm and need
for developers in China to further their learning in a conference style
setting and gain insight into how their work plays an integral role in
the games industry worldwide,” said Meggan Scavio, event director.
“Based on our experience from our first event, GDC China 2009 will serve
the community even better with more specialized content garnered with
the help of the Asian development community, our advisory board, and the
experience and knowledge of the GDC.”
