At FOSDEM 2019, LLVM will again participate with a dedicated devroom,
on February 3rd, in Brussels.
As possibly the largest European Open Source Conference, FOSDEM
attracts more than 600 lectures and over 8000 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,
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 Sunday November 25th, 2018.
Speakers will be notified of acceptance or rejection by December 11th.
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/FOSDEM19, “Create Event”.
Please make sure you select "LLVM 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.

FOSDEM does not require any registration and is free of charge.

The mailing list llvm-devroom at lists.fosdem.org can be used to

organization. Please, do not reply to this email, as it is cross

*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

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
