Call for Speakers

Atlantic Canadian Game Developers,

GDA 2020 is looking for speakers at this year’s event! This year GDA is being held virtually on Friday, September 18th. Presentations will tentatively take place from 1pm to 6pm and each be roughly 35 minutes long. There will be two tracks running at the same time, allowing for at least 10 speakers at this year’s event.

We are seeking a wide range of topics to be covered by this year’s presentations, however, we are particularly interested in the following themes:

⚓ Software Engineering
⚓ Art
⚓ Ethics in Video Games
⚓ Diversity & Accessibility
⚓ How to Start Creating
⚓ Prototyping

Furthermore, we are seeking speakers with high levels of expertise in technical fields in order to offer non-beginner level presentations.
If you have a topic that falls outside these themes, it may still be eligible for this year’s event!

Fill out the Speaker Application, once filled out, save the form with your name in the title and email to selena.landon@ubisoft.com. Furthermore, do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns at camille@hal-con.com.
