Organizers of CMP's 2007 Austin Game Developers Conference have announced that public voting is now open for the People's Choice session track, with user-selected sessions being taken from a pool of potentials to make up a new hand-picked conference track.
Votes will be taken from today until July 27 at the conference's People's Choice voting section
, where users can see how their session votes perform with the overall votes from their peers, and re-cast votes accordingly.
Selected track sessions include GoPets CEO Erik Bethke's provocative 'Third Party Game Development is Dead!', Forterra Systems CEO Jon Watte's 'Beyond Web 2.0: The case for a 3d internet', and Tom Buscaglia's 'The Game Attorney's Developer Deal Roundtable'.
The three-day Austin GDC event, presented by the CMP Game Group, host of the industry-leading Game Developers Conference (GDC), will take place September 5-7, 2007 at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas.
The Austin GDC will feature more than 90 lectures, panels, tutorials and round-table discussions on game development across four tracks: online games, audio for games, writing for games and the new People's Choice track featuring the sessions community members want to see most. Austin GDC will also feature a Game Career Seminar for students and job-changers researching entry into the game industry, and a new event, PC Game On, focusing on the PC game enthusiast.
