With the start of GDC 2012 only hours away, the dates for next year's conference are already in place.
GDC 2013 will take place from March 25th to 29th, positioning the event a few weeks later in the year than it has been in its recent iterations.
The GDC 2013 Expo runs from March 27th to March 29th.
If you're already thinking that far ahead, make a note in your diary now.
The confirmed venue for the 2013 event is presently listed simply as San Francisco. Unless the organisers are looking to buck tradition, it will likely be in the city's Moscone Centre.
