User Experience & Game Development

Track 3
Meeting Rooms 7 - 9 : 150 seats

This is a Special Track, a breakout session happening at the same time as the Main Hall talks. Learn more...

This is a Special Track, a breakout session happening at the same time as the Main Hall talks. Special Tracks have limited slots: you may have to fall in line early (and possibly miss other talks) if you want to get good seats for a session.

At the end of every session, the rooms will be vacated and those who attended the session in the room will have to line up again if they want to attend the talk in the same room. This will allow everyone to get a better chance to attend sessions for a track.

As much as we would like to accommodate as many people as possible in the Special Tracks, due to stricter safety guidelines after the incident last May, we unfortunately have to turn away interested participants once a room is full.
