Women in Games ConferenceThose with an eagle eye will have noticed that there’s been a quiet pre-announcement for the Women in Games 2008 conference over on the WiG website. In a nutshell, the 2008 Women in Games conference will be held at the University of Warwick in Coventry on 10th-12th September 2008.

This formidable trio will lead us forward to Women in Games Valhalla!
