UCI Esports Conference (ESC 2018)

The University of California, Irvine is excited to announce the first annual Esports Conference (ESC 2018) to be held on the UCI campus. The ESC is the first academic event of its kind to focus on esports research and practice. Building on the momentum of our smaller summit meeting last year, the ESC will feature academic research presentations and symposia, collegiate program professionals panel discussions and post-mortems, and a public festival featuring vendor booths, a private reception, and a live streamed collegiate esports match in the UCI esports arena.

There was a great variety of professionals and academics sharing their experiences, insights, and theories in a cornucopia of nerds and geeks who are plotting the future course and shape of the digital landscape (if not already carving it out).

Breakfast could've used some bacon, but nobody is perfect. Pretty well run for a first time event and multiple unexpected surges in attendance.
