U engineering faculty also will discuss in a panel session the history of video game development in Utah and how it has led to a multi-million-dollar industry in the state.

The conference keynote will be held Sept. 25 at The City Library, 210 E 400 South, while the panel discussions will be held Sept. 26 at The Leonardo. All sessions are open to the public.
