App Developers Conference and GDC Next now taking submissions for the debut conferences

The inaugural App Developers Conference (ADC) and the inaugural Game Developers Conference Next (GDC Next) is now accepting submissions for lectures, roundtables and panels until May 29, according to UBM Tech's website.

According to UBM Tech, GDC Next is the spiritual successor to GDC Online and will focus on next-gen, mobile gaming and free-to-play. Those who wish to submit talks are asked to do so within the conference's six tracks of The Future of Gaming, next generation game platforms, free-to-play and new Business models, smartphone and tablet games, cloud gaming and independent games.

The ADC will center on app development outside of gaming and will cover the entertainment, enterprise, health/wellness, lifestyle, brand marketing and education markets. Submissions for talks on topics about design, programming, business and marketing will be considered.

"With the evolution and growth of interactive technology moving at light speed, it became clear to us that we should bring our 25+ 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 Meggan Scavio, general manager of GDC events.

Both conferences will take place on Nov. 5 to 7, 2013 at the at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Separate passes for the shows will be available, as well as a VIP pass that will grant access to both shows.
