The Game UX Summit is the first professional UX event dedicated to the video game industry.

This summit brings together renowned speakers from various UX-related disciplines: Human Factors, Human-Computer Interaction, UX Design, User Research, Analytics, Business Intelligence, and more.
It has been created by Celia Hodent, Game UX consultant, speaker, and writer, author of The Gamer’s Brain: How Neuroscience and UX can Impact Video Game Design.

Game UX Summit talks are meant to share best practices about game user experience in a broad sense, applied to video games. Any perspective about game UX can interest us (as you can see from the list of topics above), as long as it's practical and it relates to video games (or other games).
