       2011 Developers’ Meeting Announcement
The fifth annual LLVM Developers' Meeting will be held on November 18, 2011 in San Jose, California, USA. Details on the venue, registration, and other logistics will be announced within two weeks.
As with previous meetings, this gathering serves as a forum for both developers and users of LLVM to meet, learn how LLVM is used, and to exchange ideas about LLVM and its potential applications.
Who should attend?
• Active developers and users of LLVM family of projects, including the following:
                - LLVM Core
                - Clang
                - LLDB
• Anyone interested in using LLVM as part of a commercial, open-source, or research project
• Compiler, programming language, and language runtime enthusiasts
• Those interested in applying compiler technology in novel and interesting ways
                              Call for Speakers
We are looking for speakers for this year's meeting. Topics should include any of the LLVM family of projects or new uses of those projects. If you are interested in presenting at this year's LLVM Developers' Meeting, please submit your talk proposal to us by September 15, 2011 via the website:
There will be 3 classes of sessions
• Keynote
• Technical
• Birds-of-a-feather (BoF).
For examples from last year’s meeting, visit the following:
Please note that presentation materials and videos for the technical sessions will be posted on llvm.org after the conference.
In prior years companies have come forth to sponsor speakers in need of travel assistance and likely will do so again. If you need assistance, please fill out the form here:

Note, speakers that receive funding maybe required to present at the meeting and may have additional requirements from their sponsor (i.e. writing a blog post, etc).
Registration - Attendance to this year's meeting is complimentary but registration is mandatory as space is limited. Please look for registration information to come in the next two weeks.
Mailing List - Sign up for the official Developer Meeting mailing list to keep informed of updates concerning the meeting:
Travel - For those traveling to the area to attend the meeting, there will be a block of rooms at a local hotel in order to provide convenient access and 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.
Sponsorship Requested - Qualcomm Innovation Center (QuIC) and Apple will be sponsoring the cost of this year’s meeting, but we are eager to find companies to help cover travel expenses for speakers needing assistance. If your company is interested, please contact dkipping at qualcomm.com.
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 reusable 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.
