Good news for VR enthusiasts: UBM Tech Game Network, the organizers of the Game Developers Conference, are very excited to announce that the upcoming GDC 2016 will feature the debut of a new standalone Virtual Reality Developers Conference.

The inaugural VRDC, held alongside GDC's Summits, will bring together experts from the video game, entertainment and tech fields to discuss the state of the art of making immersive virtual reality and augmented reality (AR) experiences.

VRDC will take place the first two days of GDC 2016 (Monday, March 14th and Tuesday, March 15th) and offer developers of all stripes the opportunity to explore and discuss interactive experiences, including both linear and non-linear VR and AR projects.

Programming for the conference will include valuable content for the burgeoning masses of VR game developers, storytellers, and creators looking to harness the uncharted potential of VR technology for 3D games, CG movies, actual filmed experiences and beyond.

Passes to attend VRDC will also grant entrance to the main GDC Expo Floor from March 16th-18th, where many of VR's biggest names will be showcasing their latest technology. By the same token, all GDC Summits and GDC All-Access Pass holders will also have access to all VRDC content.

Submissions for VRDC and all summit content will be open in September 2015. For more details on VRDC, GDC and the talk submission process please visit the GDC website.

Gamasutra and GDC are sibling organizations under parent UBM Tech
