GDC Austin organiser Think Services has opened the call for speaker submissions for the four-day conference.

Focusing on online games, mobile gaming, virtual worlds, and social networking, GDC Austin hopes to attract speakers planning to address the most pressing development challenges for connected games.

Submissions are welcomed for lectures, roundtables and tutorials relating to business and marketing, design, social networking and community, services, production and programming

“Now in its seventh year, GDC Austin will continue to serve the global online development communities through education and networking,” said Izora de Lillard, event director of GDC Austin. “Having developed an international reputation over these seven years for being the focal point of key learnings in the online games space, we are thrilled to return to Austin in September with expanded content focused on innovative designs and business models within connected games.”

Think Services has also opened the call for submissions for the Game Audio Summit and for the Game Writers Summit.
