Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

After a successful first edition in 2016, the Everything Procedural Conference on procedural content generation for games will return in 2018.

We have speakers confirmed from leading AAA game studios, which will be revealed shortly.

The conference is not all Houdini related but might be of interest to all. Location is Breda, the Netherlands, Europe.
