The Game Accessibility Conference arrives in Paris this October

"So no player is unnecessarily excluded from everything that games have to offer."

The Game Accessibility Conference will take place in Paris on the 22nd of October this year. The one-day event is dedicated to making games more accessible to players with disabilities.

GAConf promises to cover everything from indie to triple-A development, from academia to accessibility specialists. Its goal, according to the press release, is to "ensure any game can reach as many people as possible, so no player is unnecessarily excluded from everything that games have to offer."

Topics include designing autism and cognitive accessibility, and exploring the experiences of players with motor disabilities. Speakers include Tara Voelker of Xbox, the disabled gamer and advocate Vivek Gohil, Mark Friend of PlayStation, Douglas Pennant of Creative Assembly and Jamie Knight of the BBC.

Previous events have been held in the US; this October's conference at the CNAM in Paris follows requests from the community to have an event in Europe. Tickets are now on sale.
