View, browse and sort the ever-growing list of sessions by pass type, track, and format. With this Session Scheduler, you can build your schedule in advance and access it during the show via export or with the GDC Mobile App, once live. Sessions do fill up so please arrive early to sessions that you would like to attend. Adding a session to your schedule does not guarantee you a seat.
Elizabeth Sampat is an award-winning game designer and activist. Professionally, the mobile titles she's worked on have been downloaded almost three billion times; at home, she crafts personal games that are intimate, revealing, and push the boundaries of the relationship between game and player. In her spare time, she works to make the industry she loves a better place for women and marginalized people. She was on the IGDA Women In Games steering committee for two years; Marie Claire called me "The Game Changer" when they named her one of "20 Women Changing The Ratio" in male-dominated industries. Her book Empathy Engines: Design Games That Are Personal, Political, And Profound was released in early 2017.
