The Central European Games Conference takes place between February 17th and February 21st, 2016. Its schedule is comprised of a multitude of events, summits, sessions, talks, exhibitions, parties and the Austria Game Jam.
As a part of its diversity promotion, CEGC 2016 introduces the new Women in Games event, where women professionals in the industry will share their experiences in a series of short speeches.
Although the aim is to encourage the acceptance and furtherance of women in game development, especially in Central Europe, CEGC strives for an equal treatment for everyone in order to build a stronger games industry.
Thus all attendants regardless of gender are invited to join and contribute to the talks and discussions on the topics raised by our speakers.
Following its course from the previous year, CEGC 2016 would like to bring the spotlight to those who usually remain behind the scenes during the creation of games.
The Summit of the Games Industry Enabling Organizations and Associations invites everyone to attend the talks with facilitators of the games industry: incubators, accelerators, games associations, governmental structures, educational institutions, and all the other organizations that keep the games world turning.
Sharing the experience, learning from each other, establishing proper communication are CEGCs goals in order to help bring games to life.
New at CEGC, our Education Summit is one of a very few events which offer the information about the education related to game development.
We seek to fill this gap, as we invite the educational institutions to tell our attendees more about the educational possibilities, challenges and needs, in terms of creating games.
Another our goal is to strengthen the bond between the educational institutions and the game development companies as well, for the sake of the continuous growth of our still young industry.
The Central European Games Conference takes place between the 17th and 21st of February, 2016 at the Univeristy of Vienna. Tickets for the event can be purchased below.
