Registration has opened for the Academy of Interactive Arts & Science’s 2015 D.I.C.E. (Design, Innovate, Communicate, Entertain) Summit, which will be held from February 3-5, 2015. The first confirmed speakers are: Tracy Fullerton (experimental game designer, director of USC’s Game Innovation Lab), Tom Kalinske (Former CEO of Sega of America), Sean Murray (co-founder of Hello Games, currently working on No Man’s Sky) and Ru Weerasuriya (founder of Ready at Dawn Studios, currently developing The Order: 1886). They will lead the annual summit’s discourse on this year’s theme: “Without Borders”
“This theme kicked off at D.I.C.E. Europe in September as a starting point for discussion of the industry’s expanding culture, a culture that is seeing past barriers dissipate as we continue rapid growth and evolution,” explained AIAS president Martin Rae. “Our speakers will bring their own interpretation of this theme, focusing on the expanding opportunities for the interactive entertainment industry with an eye towards the global marketplace, technology, creativity, emerging markets, diversity, and more.”
The annual summit and awards program celebrates the interactive entertainment industry by bringing together voices from academia, journalism, and all elements of the design and publishing process to address broad questions of the art’s past, present, and future. D.I.C.E. 2015 will take place from February 3-5, 2015 at the Hard Rock Hotel in Last Vegas, culminating in the 18th Annual D.I.C.E. Awards on February 5.
