The second GDC China has opened up its call for submissions for panels, lectures, and tutorials, which remains open through May 22, 2009.
As previously announced, GDC China 2009 marks Think Services' return to the Chinese mainland; the event has the official sanction of Ministry of Culture of China.
The show itself will take place at the Shanghai International Convention Center from October 11 - 13, 2009. Its event director is Meggan Scavio, who serves the same role she does for the U.S.-based GDC, which took place last month in San Francisco.
Lecture formats sought include 60-minute lectures, 60-minute panel and full-day tutorials. Some of the track topics that GDC China 2009 will particularly focus on include:
- Global Game Development
- Visual Art
- Independent Games
All ideas for sessions can be submitted via the official GDC China website; full guidelines on the submission process can be found at this link. English submissions need not have a Chinese component at this stage.
