Being held alongside Game Developers Conference 2017 in San Francisco, VRDC @ GDC- the Virtual Reality Developers Conference at GDC - taps expertise from video game, entertainment and tech fields to discuss making amazing, immersive VR (and AR) at a new standalone, industry-leading event.
This major event returns for the second year and will contain content that goes beyond games to explore interactive entertainment experiences of all kinds in the VR and AR space. VRDC @ GDC differentiates itself from our stand alone VRDC in November by focusing exclusively on VR/AR entertainment related content. Programming for the conference will have applicability both for the burgeoning masses of VR game developers, and those working in VR for non-game, but equally immersive purposes - from CG movies to filmed experiences and beyond.
The call for submissions to VRDC @ GDC will open Monday, August 29th and close on Friday, September 23rd at 11:59 PT.
