UT Dallas Computer Game
Conference Scheduled for Feb. 9-11
February 8, 2007
The 2007 UT Dallas Computer Game Conference — an event run entirely by students and that will provide the opportunity to mingle with professionals from the local computer game development and design community — will take place Feb. 9-11 on the UT Dallas campus.
The event is free and open to the public and will take place in the university’s School of Management building. Presentations will begin at 3 p.m. Friday in the SOM auditorium and will continue throughout the weekend.
Now in its sixth year, the conference is one of the largest student-developer gatherings in the United States. Featured speakers will include representatives from local game development companies such as Gearbox, Ritual Entertainment, Paradigm Entertainment and THQ, as well as area universities, including UT Dallas’ Institute for Interactive Arts and Engineering and The University of North Texas’ Lab for Recreational Computing.
New this year is the first annual Computer Game Showcase. The Showcase is a nine-month long development competition that will culminate at the conference, where participants will have their work demonstrated and one entry will be chosen to receive the “Best In Show” title.
