The conference is annually attended by professional game developers, user experience researchers and designers, and all who have an interest in Games Research & User Experience (GRUX). The event is proudly presented by the GRUX SIG of the International Game Developers Association.

The #gamesUR Summit annually hosts 200+ professionals at the forefront of player-centric game development. The conference will featurea keynote panel, presentations, and panels at all experience levels, as well as opportunities to virtually socialize.
