The bgf 2011 is still looking for speakers for the upcoming event. This year, we focus on several topics, which we think can be interesting to our audience – but of course you are always welcome to suggest your own.

This years focus topics are:

  • IPs in Browsergames: An increasing number of big IPs make their way into the browser. What are they good for? How do they change the production and publishing process? Where are the pitfalls?
  • Transplatform: Content is making the leap from Browser to Mobile and back. How will the future look like? How does this affect the games and gamers – from session lengths and ways of usage to business models?
  • User Retention: With acquisition becoming ever more expensive, user retention strategies come into focus. How to keep your hard earned users inside the game?
  • Different games for different people: The browser games have diversified themselves with regards to gameplay, user groups and even countries. But
can the market sustain so many offers? Where exactly is the mainstream and where are the niches? What do the different target groups look like?
  • New Technology: Technological barriers are tore down every week it appears. 3D has entered the browser with a vengeance. HTML 5 is on the brink of success. New technolgies are at the forefront of changing our expectations about what browser games are.

The submission deadline is 10th of October 2011. Speakers can submit their sessions via mail to
