There are about 100 seats left, after which a wait list will be created on a first come basis.

Space is limited for dinner, and there are about 40 seats left

Lightning Talks and Posters:
Several requests have been made to have Posters and Lighting Talks. Lighting Talks are ~5 minute topics which could be an advertisement for a poster later in the day, or just to generate food for thought to be discussed during breaks/BoFs/dinner. Submit your proposals for a lighting talk at
Be sure to include "lighting talk" in the description.

Submit a proposal for a poster at 
We expect that some poster authors may be from university or the community, and may need travel assistance. If so apply at www.llvm.org/devmtg/sponsor.php. I will try my best to find sponsorship for interesting research or uses related to LLVM family projects.

If there are enough quality proposals for Lighting Talks and/or Posters, we will add sessions for this year's program.
