[Ever wondered how talks get selected for GDC? Game Developers Conference event director Meggan Scavio reveals this year's GDC advisory board and submission process.]
Every summer, the GDC advisory board gathers to discuss the direction of the next event. The board is made up of 17 of the most dedicated, brilliant people in the industry. And Iâ€™m not just saying that because they might read this.
You may have heard of some of them, for example Blizzardâ€™s Rob Pardo, Electronic Arts' Lou Castle, veteran creator Mark Cerny, Bungie's Chris Butcher, MGS's Laura Fryer, and Maxisâ€™ Chris Hecker. See, itâ€™s true. Smarties.
Anyhow, during this meeting they talk about everything from networking opportunities (â€œwouldnâ€™t it be cool to have a roundtable follow a thought-provoking lecture so the attendees can discuss what they just heard?â€) to session formats (â€œwhat if we gave speakers 3 minutes each to present their cool idea or technologyâ€).
