GDC Europe 2011 Issues Final Reminder On Call For Lectures, Panels

Organizers of GDC Europe 2011 are issuing a final reminder on the call for submissions for the Main Conference and new focused Summits for this August’s conference in Cologne, Germany.

With over 200 session proposals started in the system, and over 100 already submitted, organizers are expecting a flood of submissions over the final 24 hours of the process — with submissions officially closing at 11.59pm PT on Friday, April 8th.

Taking place Monday through Wednesday, August 15-17, 2011 at the Cologne Congress-Centrum Ost, GDC Europe 2011 will again provide the essential pan-European perspective of game development and business trends happening throughout the continent today.

The call for submissions for lectures will include main conference tracks in Business & Marketing, Game Design, Production, Programming, and Visual Arts.

Organizers are looking for leading practitioners to propose lectures and panels with major practical takeaways for today’s video game market.

In addition, GDC Europe 2011 is introducing the Social Games Summit, Smartphone & Tablet Games Summit, Independent Games Summit, and Community Management Summit to its roster this year, and is also looking for submissions in these focused areas.

The Call for Submissions for both the Main Conference tracks and all four GDC Europe Summits is only open through Friday, April 8, 2011. You can learn more about the submissions process and guidelines at the official GDC Europe 2011 submissions page.
