European LLVM Developers' Meeting (EuroLLVM) - Edinburgh, April 7th-8th - Call for Contributions
We are pleased to announce the 4th European LLVM conference on April 7th-8th 2014 in Edinburgh, Scotland.
This will be a full two-day conference which aims to present the latest developments in the LLVM world and help strengthen the network of LLVM developers and users. The format will be similar to that of the previous meetings, with ample time for presentations, discussion, and networking between participants. The meeting is open to anyone whether from industry or academia, professional or enthusiast and is not restricted to those from Europe - attendees from all regions are welcome. EuroLLVM 2014 will be held at the University of Edinburgh's School of Informatics in the historic city centre of Edinburgh, Scotland, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
We invite academic, industrial and hobbyist speakers to present their work on developing or using LLVM, Clang, and other related sub-projects. Material will be chosen to cover a broad spectrum of topics at various depths.
We are looking for:
1. Keynote speakers.
2. Technical presentations related to development of LLVM, Clang, etc.
(30min plus questions)
3. Presentations on academic or commercial use of LLVM, Clang, etc.
4. Workshops and in-depth tutorials (~60 minutes).
5. Posters and Lightening Talks (5 minutes)
6. Birds of a Feather sessions
The deadline for receiving submissions is February 16th, 2014. Speakers will be notified of acceptance or rejection on March 1st. Proposals should include the type of activity proposed, names and affiliations of speakers, and a comprehensive abstract (~150-200 words). Submissions must be made in plain text by email to:
Please note that presentation materials and videos of conference sessions will be posted on llvm.org after the conference.

The LLVM Infrastructure is a collection of libraries and tools that make it easy to build compilers, optimizers, Just-In-Time code generators, and many other compiler-related programs. LLVM uses a single, language-independent virtual instruction set both as an offline code representation (to communicate code between compiler phases and to run-time systems) and as the compiler internal representation (to analyse and transform programs). This persistent code representation allows a common set of sophisticated compiler techniques to be applied at compile-time, link-time, install-time, run-time, or "idle-time" (between program runs). The strengths of the LLVM infrastructure are its extremely simple design (which makes it easy to understand and use), source-language independence, powerful mid-level optimizer, automated compiler debugging support, extensibility, and its stability and reliability. LLVM is currently being used to host a wide variety of academic research projects and commercial projects.
