The complete conference schedule for the 2008 ION Game Conference (formerly OGDC) has been posted for attendees to plan their schedule. Over 100 speakers and 70 sessions are listed for the May 13-15 event in Seattle, Washington. The ION Game Conference is an annual industry event which offers attendees an opportunity to network and learn about "new online game development and business trends." Online registration is still available, but the discounted $695 attendance fee ends on April 28th. Afterwards, registering will cost $995. New speakers at the conference include Gaia Online CEO Craig Sherman and Cartoon Network community director Rich Weil. Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley will deliver the keynote address on May 13th. According to the ION Game Conference's official site, this year's theme for the event is redefining online: "Redefining online means we’re actively exploring the boundaries of online game development, covering more than just MMO fantasy games. Console, wireless, virtual worlds, mash-ups, mobile, casual games – all of these categories intersect with online gaming. Online games are global and expanding into new markets that boxed games can't. Redefining online is an ongoing interchange of ideas and information that will involve everyone at ION."
