PixelPop Festival 2020 Conference Session Application
Submit your proposal to speak at the PixelPop Festival 2020 Online Event, on September 12 & 13, 2020.
PixelPop Festival is seeking conference sessions by speakers who hope to share their experiences in games. Desired topics include (but are not limited to) game postmortems, traditional game design, experimental game design, social advocacy in games, game studies, interactive workshops, game art, game narrative, game audio, emerging technologies (AR/VR/XR), e-sports, gaming content creation, game communities, etc.
At PixelPop Festival, we aim to highlight unique personal experiences that can't be found easily in online tutorials. Sessions that reflect underrepresented and/or experimental perspectives, experiences, and methodologies are preferred. Unique or experimental online presentation methods are welcome.
Conference session formats include traditional speaker presentations, academic papers, moderated panels, and workshops. We also welcome proposals for new formats that uniquely fit this year's digital presentation method. All presentations will be done remotely, online.
Applications will be open until July 26, 2020. Applicants will be notified of session acceptance no later than the week of August 3, 2020. Submitting an application does not guarantee session time.
