"With 'Take Control' as the theme for next year's GDC Mobile, we're looking for thought-provoking presentations that will challenge the current constraints and empower everyone in the mobile game industry to do just that," said Jamil Moledina, executive director, Game Developers Conference. "We're also encouraging developers to submit unique game applications for the 'World Tour of Mobile Innovations' session, a staple of the conference."
