I've held off on making this post for a bit because I keep expecting an email that starts off with "I'm sorry, but we don't know what we were thinking...". Assuming that email never comes, I will be a keynote speaker at the CGamesUSA 2012 Conference.
This will be the conference's 17th year, and will be held at the Galt House Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky. The conference focuses on bringing together "researchers, games developers, sound, graphics, video, and animation developers, education and training industry, and students from around the world to exchange ideas on design methods, research and development, and programming techniques that are beneficial to the computer games industry and academia." I am as excited to attend as I am to speak!
This next line is just for google. And my ego. But mostly google.
Keynote Speaker: Michael Neel
Congratulations. Break a leg.
