The present disclosure is directed to a system and method for initiating a real- time audio/video-conference. A hosting computing device will communicate with the user computing devices at, or a short time before, a scheduled time of the conference. Each user computing device and/or the hosting computing device will determine if there are any users ready to participate in the conference. If there are no users ready for the conference (e.g., there are no users in the rooms associated with the user computing devices), the conference will be initiated by the user computing device(s) and/or the hosting computing device such that users, as they arrive, will be immediately participating in the conference. Further areas of applicability of the present disclosure will become apparent from the detailed description provided hereinafter. It should be understood that the detailed description and specific examples are intended for purposes of illustration only and are not intended to limit the scope of the disclosure.
