Applicants have until May 29th to offer their ideas to the conferences

Submissions for lectures, roundtables and panels at the inaugural App Developers Conference (ADC) and the Game Developers Conference Next (GDC Next) are now open.

Submissions are open now until Wednesday, May 29th.
ADC and GDC Next are taking place simultaneously on November 5th to 7th, 2013 at the LA Convention Center.

The App Developers Conference is a new event that focuses on the best development, UI, marketing and business of apps outside of games. Whether their apps embrace iOS, Android or neither, or whether they operate even further afield, the conference aims to present the best practices to developers.

Some of the topics covered at this inaugural ADC will be enterprise, health, lifestyle, brand marketing and education. Organisers are looking for quality talks on design, programming, business and marketing from practitioners in all these areas and beyond.

Co-located with ADC (and available to attend with a separate standalone pass, or with a VIP All Access Pass), the first ever Game Developers Conference Next (GDC Next) – a spiritual sequel to the GDC Online shows – is also taking place.

It will feature detailed content about creating the game experiences of the future. The conference organisers and advisory board are programming this spiritual sequel to the long-running GDC Online shows, and are striving to bring the creators of tomorrow’s biggest and most innovative video games and game platforms together in one location.

Applicants are being asked to present best practices across six tracks: The Future of Gaming, Next Generation Game Platforms, Free-to-Play & New Business Models, Smartphone and & Tablet Games, Cloud Gaming and Independent Games.

GDC Next organisers and its advisory board, separate from the ADC advisory board, will be accepting submissions now until May 29th.

“With the evolution and growth of interactive technology moving at light speed, it became clear to us that we should bring our 25-plus years of expertise producing the Game Developers Conference events to the ever-expanding universe of app development, and also create a new event that looks at the future of the games space,” said general manager of all Game Developers Conference events, Meggan Scavio.

“We anticipate a wide range of submissions from the top echelon of the app development community and the game makers of the future, and we look forward to bringing the highest quality of content that GDC is known for to both events in Los Angeles this fall.”

Submissions for ADC are open now and can be submitted here.
