It is being hosted alongside the National Videogame Arcade, a massive space for a celebration of the medium through a range of ongoing and temporary exhibitions. This year we're trying something a little bit different: the first day will be the "core" day of the conference as it has been the past seven years, where everyone from big name in the field to enthusiast is invited to come, present talks, listen to talks, show off demos, and the like. The second day will be more public, and is currently planned to include an exhibition of playable classic roguelikes with help on hand to explain the user interfaces to new players, a roguelike game jam, a chance to talk with game journalists interested in the genre, and public lectures on the genre and procedural generation more generally. We're therefore interested in both the classic networking with everyone already interested in roguelikes, but also in bringing our beloved genre to a wider audience and the games press.
Accommodation options will be posted soon, but Nottingham is a very attractive medieval city with the standard range of hotels/B&Bs/etc that you'd expect.
