[llvm-dev] [EuroLLVM'19] Call for Talks, Tutorials, BoFs, Student Research Competition, and more !

Alberto Barbaro via llvm-dev

All developers and users of LLVM and related sub-projects are invited to present at EuroLLVM'19.


We are looking for the following proposals:

  1. Technical Talks (30 minutes including Q&A): talks on LLVM core libraries, Clang, Infrastructure, and all related sub-projects, on uses of LLVM in academia or industry, on new projects using Clang or LLVM

  1. Tutorials (60 minutes): in depth talks on LLVM infrastructure or other core libraries, with in depth examples and explanations

  1. Student Research Competition (25 minutes talk including Q&A + poster): The SRC offers students doing LLVM related research a non-academic platform to announce and advertise their work as well as to discuss it with other researchers, developers and users of LLVM. Students are strongly encouraged to present a poster as well, as this will enable wider discussions with the audience. There will be a prize for the best SRC talk.

  2. Lightning Talks (5 minutes, no questions, no discussions)

  3. Bird of a Feather (30 minutes)

  4. Posters (1 hour poster session)



Submission Requirements:

The submission deadline is January 13, 2019 AoE.


Please submit your proposal at https://hotcrp.llvm.org/eurollvm2019


For each proposal, please submit a title, short abstract (to be used on the website), note who the speakers are, and provide a more detailed description of the talk. You must consult and follow the guide at the end of this CFP when submitting your proposal.

Detailed guidance on writing a proposal for the LLVM developers’ meeting


This is a guide to help you submit the best proposal and increase your chances of your proposal being accepted. The LLVM Developers’ Meeting program committee receives more proposals than can be accepted, so please read this guide carefully.


If you have never presented at an LLVM Developers’ Meeting, then do not fear this process. We are actively looking for new speakers who are excited about LLVM and helping grow the community through these educational talks! You do not need to be a long time developer to submit a proposal.


General guidelines:

  • It should be clear from your abstract what your topic is, who your targeted audience is, and what are the takeaways for attendees. The program committee gets a lot of proposals and does not have time to read 10 page papers for each submission (excluding SRC submissions).

  • Talks about a use of LLVM (etc) should include details about how LLVM is used and not only be about the resulting application.

  • Tutorials on “how to use X” in LLVM (or other subproject) are greatly desired and beneficial to many developers. Entry level topics are encouraged as well.

  • Talks that have been presented at other technical conferences tend to not get accepted. If you have presented this topic before, make it clear what is new and different in your talk.

  • We suggest you proofread and pay attention to grammar.



Technical talk & tutorial proposal template:


Title:

  • This will be displayed on the website, schedule, and signs.

  • Keep it short and catchy to attract attendees to your talk. A couple of examples are “WebAssembly: Here Be Dragons” or “Beyond Sanitizers: guided fuzzing and security hardening”.


Speaker Name(s), Company, Email:

  • This should be only the people giving the talk. HotCRP allows you to list authors but not speakers. We also recommend you put speakers only in the HotCRP “Contact” field so they are the ones contacted regarding conference details.


Abstract:

  • 1-2 paragraphs. Keep in mind that this is displayed on the schedule and website for attendees to consider when selecting talks.


Submission:

  • Include details about your talk in the PDF you upload: an outline, demo description, background of the speaker, etc.

  • For tutorials, include additional details such as tutorial outline, what materials you will provide attendees, etc.

  • This will not be published and is intended for the PC to better understand how interesting your talk will be to the audience. For example, if you would prefer not to reveal some conclusions in the published abstract, explaining them here ensures that the PC can take them into account when evaluating your proposal.
