Call for Speaker – Develop: Brighton

14th March 2019

Insight: Inspiration: Networking

Connected Futures, led by Professor Karen Cham, is sponsoring the Develop: Research academic track, an applied research showcase at influential games industry conference, Develop : Brighton. The conference will be held between 9-11 July 2019 at the Hilton Brighton Metropole in Brighton and will be an opportunity to demonstrate the impactful research and enterprise of our university community and our key collaborators.

Develop: Brighton is an industry-facing event which brings together people from the European gaming community, routinely attracting more than 2000 attendees from across the games industry. This expansive convention features a conference, workshops, networking events and an extremely well-attended exhibition hall. As such, this is an excellent opportunity to showcase industry-facing academic research, identify potential collaborators and gain insight into the breadth of technical and creative innovation shaping the sector.

This year, Develop: Research Chair, Helen Kennedy, is working closely with Professor Gregor White from Abertay University and esteemed colleagues from across the UK to address the gap in a dedicated, sector-facing, game conference where academics at UK universities can engage with industry to generate economic and cultural impact.
