EIF running from 10th-16th August; Event calls for speakersThe Edinburgh Interactive Festival 2009 is to take place from the 10th to the 16th of August.
Part of the larger Edinburgh Festival, the EIF is making a call for speakers from game development, publishing and hardware, as well as from the media, government, film, TV, and broader entertainment industries.
EIF chairman Chris Deering said: “Edinburgh is electric with creative energy during the Festival, which enhances the spirit of networking that attendees always cite as their reason for returning to EIF each year. The Content Committee is organizing the most creative and enlightening line-up of conference sessions in EIF history, looking at new frontiers in game design, and new mobile game devices as well as the expanding role of community in online gaming.”
The event’s organizers are also continuing the established partnership between the EIF and Abertay University, showcasing new talent through the college’s Dare to be Digital programme.
