We've pinned down a hard date for the 2nd annual LLVM Developer
meeting: August 1, 2008!
The meeting will be held on the Apple Campus, in Cupertino, CA. We've
got a great space with two separate rooms that are next door to each
other, one that comfortably holds 40 people and one that holds 50
people. In addition, there is a large area outside either room with
big tables where people can have informal discussions etc. Given that
we had about 60 people attend last year, this extra space will be very
At this point, we are planning for an all-day event, and can have two
talks happening in parallel with each other. While this means that
everyone won't be able to make it to every talk, we will record them
and can plan it so that overlapping talks are on very different topics
(maybe a clang talk at the same time as a low-level backend talk).
This means we have 'space' for 12-16 talks, but the number we end up
with depends on who is interested in speaking.
What we need from you:
Now that we have a date, we hope you can book travel and confirm your
attendance: This is particularly important for speakers. If you would
like to give a presentation, please let us know! Jonathan will start
adding this information to the web page, please email him ([hidden email] ) and CC Tanya ([hidden email]).
If you are a student contributor, or a regular llvm contributor with
financial constraints that would prevent you from attending, we will
try to help offset some of your travel costs. Please send information
about your situation, expected expenses, and other relevant
information to Jon/Tanya. Once we have an idea of the demand, we will
decide what we can do. Priority will be given to attendees who are
giving a presentation.
Other details: admission is free, and we will provide lunch. There
are many hotels in the Cupertino area. We will be investigating
getting a room block at some nearby hotel, and will update the web
page with that info when it becomes available. Also, we plan to do
some sort of group dinner afterwards, we will also figure this out in
the coming months. :)
