Third Annual LLVM Developers' Meeting
October 2, 2009 - Apple Inc. Campus, Cupertino, California, U.S.A.

The third annual LLVM Developers' Meeting will be held this on October  
2, 2009 at Apple Inc.'s main campus in Cupertino, California, USA:


As with previous meetings, this gathering serves as a forum for both  
developers and users of LLVM to get acquainted, to learn how LLVM is  
used, and to exchange ideas about LLVM and its potential applications.

Beyond discussing the core LLVM compiler infrastructure, the meeting  
will also dedicate a significant amount of attention to Clang, LLVM's  
reusable, library-based frontend for C-based languages.

This meeting will be of interest to the following people:

• Active LLVM (and Clang) developers and users
• Anyone interested in using LLVM as part of a commercial product,  
open-source project, or research
• Compiler, programming language, and language runtime enthusiasts
• Those interested in using compiler technology in novel and  
interesting ways



1. Registration

Attendance to this year's meeting is free, but those who wish to  
attend must officially register.

We invite everyone to officially register by September 20, 2009 for  
this meeting via our website:


2. Mailing List

We also invite you to sign up for the official Developer Meeting  
mailing list to be kept informed of updates concerning the meeting:


3. Travel

For those traveling to the area to attend the meeting, we plan on  
blocking rooms at a local hotel in order to provide reduced rates to  
our attendees.  Details will be forthcoming in subsequent  
announcements.  Please subscribe to the developer meeting mailing list  
(see above) to receive such updates.

4. Financial Support

Students or extremely active developers may apply for financial  
support to attend the meeting. A limited amount of funds will be  
available and those funded may be required to give a talk. Please  
apply for financial support by July 30, 2009 via the website:



Potential Speakers

If you are interested in presenting at this year's LLVM Developers'  
Meeting, please submit your talk proposal to us by August 23, 2009 via  
the website:



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 analyze 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.

About Clang

Clang, a subproject of LLVM, is a modular and resuable frontend for C- 
based languages. It targets support for C, Objective-C, and C++.   
Clang is mature and fast, and supports a fully working LLVM-based  
compiler for C and Objective-C, with C++ support underway.

Like the rest of LLVM, Clang consists of a collection of libraries,  
making it versatile in its applications.  The goal of Clang is to be  
multipurpose, allowing not only the creation of standalone compilers  
for C-based languages, but also intelligent IDEs, refactoring tools,  
source to source translators, static analysis tools, and countless  
others.  Other design goals of Clang include 100% compatibility with  
GCC and a high quality of implementation that makes Clang fast,  
scalable, and easy to customize and expand.

This year's meeting will include an extensive discussion of Clang and  
its applications.
