A Conference for the Community


Announcing ADC 2024

We are delighted to invite you to attend and contribute to the 10th Audio Developer Conference (ADC). ADC returns in 2024 both in-person and online in a new city, Bristol, UK.

The in-person and online hybrid conference will take place 11-13 November 2024.

New for ADC24: The Audio Developer Conference is now a full 3-day conference. The first day (11 November) includes even more programmed talks and workshops available to all attendees. 

Hybrid In-Person & Virtual Format

ADC returns once again in 2024 as a combined in-person and online hybrid conference format. 

A big part of the conference experience is the live interaction between attendees. For ADC24, the live conference virtual experience will return using the Gather online platform paired with the in-person Bristol, UK conference running at the same time.

All ADC24 keynotes, panels, and talks will be available to all attendees. In-person sessions will be broadcast live to online attendees and online sessions will be broadcast into the venue.

This year’s Audio Developers Conference will bring back the ADC Workshops within the main conference schedule for both in-person and online attendees. The hybrid workshop format will ensure that these informative sessions can be attended by our community of developers, educators, and students all over the world.

ADC24 Workshops take place on the first day of the conference (November 11) and are open to all conference attendees. Workshop participation will require registration as spots are limited and will be on a first-come, first served basis.

New for ADC24: 18 minute talk programming
The first day of the conference (November 11) will include a full day of 18 minute talk programming running alongside morning and afternoon workshops and will be open to all attendees.
