This years conference will take place entirely online over two days on 25th & 26th November. As ever, Ukie is calling for a small army of diverse games industry volunteers, whatever job and level they are in, to help make it happen.
If you're in the games industry, Ukie invites you to submit a short proposal for a talk or an interactive workshop that you would like to run to inspire and inform the next generation of games talent. Ukie is looking for diverse and interesting stories and content, to give students as wide a perspective as possible of what it’s like working in games and how successful careers can built.
The last Ukie Student Conference's held at Staffordshire University and Abertay University, saw over 600 students and lecturers gather to hear talks from over 50 professionals in the industry, covering creative game design, emerging business models, PR and player strategy, as well as individuals sharing their experiences working in the UK games sector.
