According to their schedule Bungie will have two appearances at the conference their sessions titled "Building Customizable Characters for Bungie's Destiny" and "Designing the Bungie Animation Workflow."
There are brief descriptions on what these session will be talking about, their first one being about customizing characters "Destiny's player customization system is highly ambitious and unlike anything seen in a first-person shooter thus far." GDC stated.
In their other session Bungie will be going into more of a technical aspect of the game showing things like how they create and animate characters as the description says. "We'll break down what it means to animate an immersive character performance, with a focus on efficiency, and Bungie's high quality bar.", "We'll demonstrate our process and our findings by giving you a behind the scenes look at our secret Bungie sauce."

An Interesting part from the destiny presentation at GDC was that the player will be able to choose from different races. Besides being a human there are 2 others that are selectable when customizing your character they are "Awoken and "Exo. Bungie describes the awoken as exotic, beautiful and mysterious beings and they said they look to ghosts, angels and vampires to capture the feel of this race. the Exo, which bungies describes as sinister, powerful, and tireless beings they said the looked to famous characters such as the terminator, the undead and their very own master chief to capure the feel of the Exo race.
Here is a picture of these races.
As the humans have different classes (hunter, titan and warlock) I'm pretty sure the awoken and exo will each feature their own classes to choose from.
So from the pictures and the descriptions bungie gave which race do you like best at the moment?

Today Bungie was in the spot light at the game developers conference, they discussed some of their techniques and inspirations when building destiny but the main part of it all was the new concept. As a large amount of concept art was shown I will try and provide the most interesting pieces I captured from the video
First up we have an abandoned colony on Europa which is one of Jupiter's moons
Here we have alien ruins on Venus it's unknown which alien race once inhabited this place
These are some early concepts of of space ships that did not make the cut
Here is a space station and a space ship which bungie said they focused more on these so it's possible these made the cut.
Here is hanger where human ships are docked one of the bungie guys said this is a place where heroes show of their armor and personal space ships. This seems to suggest the player can customize their own personal ships
Here is a place that bungies describes as a frozen city occupied by machines where towers and skyscrapers become dungeons.
Here is a place currently known as the buried city as you can see ruins buried in mountains of sand on Mars.
This is one of the enemy races, space zombies but officially named "Hive".
The flooded streets of Old Chicago.
And here are some different types of weapons, they didn't mention that these were early concepts or finalized concepts but no doubt we will be seeing some of these in the game.

In late march bungie will finally be discussing about their next game destiny, the discussion will be held at GDC (game developers conference) at the Moscone Centre in San Francisco.
Further details below.
This article is from Gamespot.
Bungie will discuss its all-new and still-unannounced franchise--believed to be titled Destiny--in late March during a 2013 Game Developers Conference talk at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California.
Presumably, a more formal announcement for Destiny is planned for sometime prior to the talk. Neither Bungie nor Activision had returned requests for comment at press time.
Bungie writer and design director Joe Staten and art director Christopher Barrett will lead the discussion, titled "Brave New World: New Bungie IP." The talk will focus on Bungie's design process and world-building techniques, running from concept to production.
Those in attendance will get a glimpse inside Bungie's new world, though it's not clear what state the game will be in during the briefing. Additionally, the event description suggests the next ten years of games from Bungie will be based in the Destiny universe.
To date, Bungie has released just one piece of artwork for Destiny, but speculation has run rampant. A leaked marketing document in November described Destiny as a "fun and accessible" game with a "deep, tangible, and relatable" universe compared to Star Wars. The game is also described as "social at its core."
According to the document, Destiny's plot revolves around an alien ship bent on destroying Earth and the "knights" tasked with defending what's left of humanity. The document also shows images bearing the Destiny logo along with Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 icons.
Destiny is Bungie's first project as part of a 10-year publishing deal with Call of Duty company Activision. Legal documents from May suggested that the game will be released for the Xbox 360 in 2013, with a 2014 release slated for the PlayStation 3.
