Organizers for Montreal International Game Summit have issued a call for local and international speakers for this year's event, which takes place November 1-2 at the Hilton Bonaventure of Montreal. Interested speakers can propose sessions that fall within the areas of arts and visual effects, business, design, production and technology. Submissions are due before April 11 at the official MIGS website. Last year, MIGS hosted over 80 speakers, including 2D Boy's Ron Carmel, Playdom's Scott Jon Siegel, Square Enix CTO Julien Merceron and former Xbox executive Ed Fries. Event director Marie Claude Bernard noted in a statement, "thanks in part to Montreal, [Canada] is now the third worldwide game development cluster." Montreal has become a key player on the international game development scene, thanks partly to government support of the interactive entertainment industry. Companies with operations in Montreal include Eidos/Square Enix, THQ, Ubisoft and Electronic Arts.
