Oculus has posted the full schedule for its upcoming Oculus Connect 3 conference on the event’s official website. The conference runs over three days, from October 5 through to October 7, at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center in California.

Though the sessions posted in the schedule give an idea of what Oculus staff and third-party VR experts will be diving into, we still don’t know what Oculus itself will be revealing during its two-hour keynote address. Hints have been provided that most of the keynote will focus on the Oculus Touch motion-tracked controllers, which are due to be shipped sometime before the end of the year.

To that end, we can expect new demo footage of Oculus Touch-exclusive games, as well as new game reveals from Oculus Studios or third-party developers that feature Oculus Touch integration. There are some scheduled talks from Oculus and others that do dive into Oculus Touch-related matters, which we’ve listed below.

Registrations for the Oculus Connect 3 conference have closed, though we’ll be reporting on all the announcements once they happen in just a week’s time.
