A Conference for the Community

Announcing ADC 2021

We are delighted to invite you to attend and contribute to the 7th Audio Developer Conference (ADC).

The in-person and online hybrid conference will take place 15-16 November 2021, with additional post-conference online workshops on 19 November 2021.

New Hybrid In-Person & Virtual Format

Due to the overwhelming success of last year’s Virtual ADC we have decided to bring the conference back for online attendees in addition to an in-person event returning to London.

A major part of the conference experience is the live interaction between attendees. For ADC 2020 we were able to accomplish this by creating a live conference virtual experience by using the Remo platform. For ADC 2021 we will bring back the virtual experience using the Gather platform paired with the in-person London conference running at the same time.

All ADC 2021 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.

To conclude this year’s Audio Developers Conference we will be bringing back the ADC Workshops in an all-new online format. This will ensure that these informative sessions can be attended by our community of developers, educators, and students all over the world. All attendees will have access to the ADC 2021 workshops.

This Year's Programme

Talks at ADC range from audio research, to professional practices, to standards in audio development, as well talks about application areas and career development. Experimental projects are welcome. We are seeking a balance between deeply technical talks aimed at experts as well as more accessible talks that may be of interest to students and new developers.

  • Digital Signal Processing
  • Audio synthesis and analysis
  • Music technology, DAWs, audio plug-ins
  • Game audio
  • 3D and VR/AR audio
  • Creative coding
  • Other applications of audio programming (e.g. telecommunications, multimedia, medicine, biology)
  • Design and evaluation of audio software and hardware systems
  • Programming languages used for audio development (e.g. C++, Rust, Python)
  • Software development tools, techniques, and processes
  • Performance, optimisation, and parallelisation
  • Audio development on mobile platforms
  • Embedded, Linux, and bare metal audio programming
  • Low-latency and real-time programming
