ADC and GDC Next, which aim to highlight the 'state of the art' for apps and the future of video games, are taking place simultaneously on November 5th-7th, 2013 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
The inaugural GDC Next will feature detailed content about creating the game experiences of the future.
Those who submit talks 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 organizers and its esteemed advisory board, separate and unique from the ADC advisory board, are providing a final reminder for talk submissions, which are due May 29th, 11:59 pm PST.
Co-located with GDC Next (and available to attend with a separate standalone pass, or with a VIP All Access Pass that gets you into both shows), the App Developers Conference is an entirely new event from the creators of GDC focusing on the very best development, UI, marketing and business of apps outside of games.

Some of the major app vertical markets covered at this inaugural ADC will be Entertainment, Enterprise, Health/Wellness, Lifestyle, Brand Marketing, and Education. Organizers are looking for great quality talks on design, programming, and business/marketing from practitioners in all these areas and beyond, with submissions also due May 29th.
