There are just four days left to submit sessions for this summer’s Game Developers Conference. 

Following a short extension, the submission deadline for GDC 2021’s Core Concepts talks is fast approaching. Prospective speakers have until 11:59 PST on January 11 to submit their talks. If accepted, they will be included as part of this summer’s revamped Game Developers Conference.

Following the cancellation of GDC 2020 last March due to COVID-19, the event returned in August as an all-digital affair, with additional masterclass sessions held in December.

Currently, GDC 2021 is scheduled for July and will feature a mix of physical sessions – held in San Francisco – and virtual talks available to stream online.

As you might expect, these plans may – and probably will – change due to the continuing pandemic. Nonetheless, the increased amount of accessible digital content can only be a good thing.

Speakers can submit to be included in one of the following categories:

  • Advocacy
  • Audio
  • Business & Marketing
  • Design
  • Production & Team Management
  • Programming
  • Visual Arts

If you’re interested in submitting a Core Concepts talk, visit the GDC website to review the submission guidelines

The call for submissions for this year’s GDC Summits, Virtual Reality Developers Conference, and Game Career Seminar are open from January 25 through to February 15, 2021.
