Hi all,

So as you know (or not) the GDC final proposals that go through the
system (not the IGDA track) are due Oct 1st. I've set up a page on
the wiki that I'll be filling in over the weekend with proposals that
I know of that are going through the regular review system:


If you have an idea for a session that WE (ie, the SIG) should turn
in, please also add that to the list.

If you are planning to put in a session that you DON'T want turned in
with the SIG proposals, please add them to this list with a short
description with a note saying that you are turning that in
independently just so that I know how many game accessibility
proposals are out there. This will also help me keep an eye out for
them, as some, if rejected, might be able to be put in through the
IGDA track (there might have to be a presentation format change but
it's a "second chance" opportunity).

Finally -- to ensure that I have an idea about how many passes we
will need for GDC, please send me an email and/or post it on the wiki
if you are planning on attending GDC 2008. That way I can distribute
names across the proposals as needed to ensure that as many people
who want to attend as possible will be able to gain access to the GDC
without worry.

As you know, we are using a different method for GDC 2008, replacing
the really exhausting daily set up and take down of the accessibility
arcade with an expo booth (also allows us to get the message across
to those who only have very limited GDC access). We're also
distributing the work of the sessions more so that I'm not "in
charge" of all of the presentations. I might be in many of them but I
won't be the one doing the main planning for all of them once we get
past the submission process.

Thanks everyone!
