GDC China returns September 15  17
GDC China's sixth incarnation will take place a few months earlier this year than last, with the conference commandeering the Shanghai International Convention Center from September 15 through September 17. As a result, panel/talk submissions for the event have an early deadline: May 10.

Talk applications can be submitted in either Mandarin or English (relevant submission forms here and here) and can cover topics on "Game Design, Production, Visual Arts, Business and Marketing, Smartphone and Tablet Games, and Independent Games," according to GDC China's official blog. Registration for GDC China is set to begin sometime later this month.
