> At FOSDEM 2018, LLVM will again participate with a dedicated devroom, on
> February 4th, in Brussels.
> As possibly the largest European Open Source Conference, FOSDEM attracts
> more than 400 lectures and over 5000 hackers - many core contributors of
> the worlds leading open source projects.
> Complementing the LLVM developer meetings, the devroom at FOSDEM provides
> a great opportunity for LLVM developers and the wider open source community
> to get together, connect and discuss.
> We invite academic, industrial and hobbyist speakers to present their work
> on developing or using LLVM, Clang, LLDB, Polly, Compiler-rt, etc.
> We are looking for:
>    - Keynote speakers.
>    - Technical presentations (30 minutes plus questions and discussion)
>    related to development of LLVM, Clang etc.
>    - Presentations about the use of LLVM, Clang in commercial, academic,
>    hobbyist and other projects.
>    - Tutorials.
>    - Lightning talks (5 minutes).
>    - Demos.
> The deadline for receiving proposals is November 26th, 2017.
> Speakers will be notified of acceptance or rejection by December 12th.
> Please find some advice on what constitutes a good proposal at the end of
> this CFP.
> To submit a proposal, please create an account on the FOSDEM interface (
> https://penta.fosdem.org/user/new_account). If you already have an
> account from previous years, please reuse that.
> Submit your proposal following https://penta.fosdem.org/
> submission/FOSDEM18, “Create Event”.
> Please make sure you select "LLVM toolchain devroom" as the "Track”.
> Presentations will be recorded and streamed. Sending your proposal implies
> giving permission to be recorded. However, exceptions can be made for
> exceptional circumstances.
> *Registration*
> FOSDEM does not require any registration and is free of charge.
> *Organization*
> The mailing list llvm-devroom at lists.fosdem.org can be used to discuss
> issues of general interest related to the conference organization. Please,
> do not reply to this email, as it is cross posted to many lists.
> *Financial support*
> There may be a possibility of limited funding to help presenting students
> or presenting contributors who could not otherwise attend the conference.
> If you need funding to be able to present at the meeting, or can help
> sponsor, please tell us on llvm-devroom at lists.fosdem.org.
> *Guidance on writing a proposal for the LLVM Dev Room*
> This is a guide to help you submit a good proposal and increase your
> chances of your proposal being accepted.
> If you have never presented at an LLVM 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 does not have time to read 10 page papers for each submission.
>    - 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.
>    - Typically a few paragraphs are sufficient.
> Best regards,
> LLVM @ FOSDEM organisers
