We are pleased to announce the third European LLVM conference on April 
29-30 2013 in Paris, France.

This will be a two day conference which aims to present the latest 
developments in the LLVM world and help strengthen the network of LLVM 
developers. The format will be similar to that of the previous meetings 
held in London but with more time for presentations and networking.  The 
meeting is open to anyone whether from business or academia, 
professional or enthusiast and is not restricted to those from Europe - 
attendees from all regions are welcome.

This meeting will be hosted by the Ecole Normale Supérieure 
(http://www.ens.fr/), located in the center of Paris.

= Call for Speakers, Posters, Demos =

We invite academic, industrial and hobbyist speakers to present their 
work on developing or using LLVM, Clang, etc.  Proposals for technical 
presentations, posters, workshops, demonstrations and BoFs are welcome. 
  Material will be chosen to cover a broad spectrum of themes and topics 
at various depths, some technical deep-diving, some surface-scratching.

We are looking for:
1. Keynote speakers.
2. Technical presentations (30 minutes plus questions and discussion)
    related to development of LLVM, Clang etc.
3. Presentations relating to academic or commercial use of LLVM, Clang
4. Workshops and in-depth tutorials (1-2 hours - please specify in your

The deadline for receiving submissions is March 1st, 2013.  Speakers 
will be notified of acceptance or rejection by the 15th of March. 
Proposals that are not sufficiently detailed (talks lacking a 
comprehensive abstract for example) are likely to be rejected.  Slides 
and posters must be in PDF format. Submissions should be done by email at:

	euro-llvm-2013-technical-committee at googlegroups.com.

Please note that presentation materials and videos for the technical 
sessions will be posted on llvm.org after the conference.

= Registration =

Registration is now open at http://goo.gl/Vilq0 on a first come, first 
served basis, free of charge.  Please send your details (name, email,
company/institution).  Attendance will be limited to about 150.

A dinner will be provided on Monday evening (29th April) - this will 
also be free of charge. Please include whether you'll be attending the 
dinner on the registration form.

= Organisation =

The mailing list llvm-devmeeting at cs.uiuc.edu can be used to discuss 
issues of general interest related to the conference organization, such 
as suggestions for special kinds of side-sessions.

= Financial Support =

There may be a possibility of limited funding to help students or 
contributors who could not otherwise attend the conference.  This will 
depend on overall sponsorship and companies' interest in supporting the 

If you need funding to attend the meeting, or can help sponsor, please 
tell us on the registration form.

= About LLVM =

The Low-Level Virtual Machine (LLVM) 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.
