The Game Developers Conference is just around the corner, and as is customary NVIDIA have released their itinerary for the event. Alongside a booth where they will be on-hand to answer questions from attendees, NVIDIA are planning 16 sponsored seminars relating to the technology of gaming and graphics hardware.

One of the fascinating aspects of GDC is that diverse and often competing organisations will come together to present the extraordinarily complex topics that they specialise in. This year's GDC is no different - during the Advanced Graphics Technology Day alone no less than three panels are co-presented by NVIDIA and AMD. If you're lucky enough to attend this year and have a keen interest in game engine design and rendering techniques, Monday 27th should have plenty to pique your interest.
