We are pleased to announce the 6th European LLVM conference on March 17-18,
2016 in Barcelona, Spain.

This will be a full two-day conference which aims to present the latest
developments around LLVM and help strengthen the network of LLVM developers
and users. The format will be similar to that of the previous meetings,
with ample time for presentations, discussion, and networking between
participants. The meeting is open to anyone whether from industry or
academia, professional or enthusiast and is not restricted to those from
Europe - attendees from all regions are welcome !

EuroLLVM 2016 will be held at Princesa Sofia Hotel (
http://www.princesasofia.com/en), collocated with the International
Compiler Construction conference (http://cc2016.eew.technion.ac.il/) and
CGO (http://cgo.org/cgo2016/)

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 more community focused.

We are looking for:
    - Keynote speakers.
    - Technical presentations (30 minutes plus questions and discussion)
related to the development of LLVM, Clang, LLD, LLDB, Polly, ...
    - Presentations relating to academic or commercial use of LLVM, Clang
    - Lightning talks (5 minutes, no questions, no discussion).
    - Workshops and in-depth tutorials (1-2 hours - please specify in your
    - Poster presentations.
    - Birds of a Feather sessions (BoFs).

**Important dates**
The deadline for receiving submissions is January 25, 2016.
Speakers will be notified of acceptance or rejection by February 15th, 2016.

Submissions should be done using the Easychair platform:
    - https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eurollvm2016

Please note that presentation materials and videos for the technical
sessions will be posted on llvm.org after the conference. We have reserved
additional spots for speakers, such that they can attend the conference
even though we have reached our registration limit.

In terms of submission style, we are looking for:
    - A title and an extended abstract,
    - A title, abstract and slides.

Please make clear the status of the slides (are they a skeleton of your
presentation with the detail missing ?), or, perhaps a section of detail
that lacks introduction and conclusions?  Also make sure to give enough
information in the extended abstract: the more you can give us and tell us
the easier it will be for us to be positive about your submission.

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.

**About LLVM**
The LLVM Infrastructure 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.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Barcelona !
