David Braben will be out in force at this year's GameCity event in November, hosting several sessions at the Nottingham based show for developers and students.
The event runs from October 24th to 28th.
Braben commented: "I'm delighted to be coming to GameCity. It's a unique opportunity to encourage students to enter the industry by discussing some of the exciting things they could be working on."
"Having David Braben attend is a huge boost for the opening day of the festival," added festival director Iain Simons. "Whilst Elite is obviously a hugely important piece of work, we're delighted to be able to highlight his other amazing output over the years."
