2019 LLVM Dev Mtg (Bay Area) - Call for presentations

Kristóf Umann via cfe-dev
All developers and users of LLVM and related sub-projects are invited to present at the 2019 LLVM Developers’ Meeting - Bay Area.

We are looking for the following proposals:
  1. Technical Talks (25-30 minutes including Q&A):
- On LLVM Infrastructure,Clang and all related sub-projects
- On uses of LLVM in academia or industry
- On new projects using Clang or LLVM
  1. Tutorials (60 minutes)
- In depth talks on LLVM infrastructure or other core libraries
  1. Student Research Competition Technical Talks & Poster (20-25 minutes including Q&A)
  2. Lightning Talks (5 minutes, no questions, no discussions)
  3. Birds of a Feather (30 minutes)**
  4. Panels (30-60 minutes)**
  5. Posters (1 hour)


** As the LLVM Developers’ Meeting as grown in size, we are moving away from formal Birds of a Feather sessions in favor of smaller informal round table discussions. These round table topics can be proposed closer to the LLVM Developers’ Meeting and are designed for a smaller and more engaged group of developers. Therefore, we are encouraging and recommending that instead of a birds of a feather sessions, that developers consider proposing a panel discussion. This would mean that several experts on a topic (and a moderator) would get together and have an open discussion in front of an audience with prepared questions and also questions from the audience. The program committee will be looking for these proposals and giving favor to them over more traditional birds of a feather proposals that we have had in the past.

Submission Requirements:
The submission deadline is August 12, 2019 at 11:59PM PDT.

Please submit your proposal here:

For each proposal, please submit a title, short abstract, submission type, abstract for the website, include who the speakers or panel member/moderators are, and provide a more detailed description of the talk through an extended PDF abstract. We highly recommend you consult and follow the guide at the end of this CFP when submitting your proposal.

Student Research Competition (SRC):
We will again have a Student Research Competition (SRC). The SRC offers students doing LLVM related research a non-academic platform to announce and advertise their work as well as to discuss it with other researchers, developers and users of LLVM. Students are asked to submit a proposal for a 20-25 minute technical talk. There will be a prize for the best SRC talk.

FAQ

When will I be notified of acceptance?

Our goal is to notify all submissions by August 27, 2019.

What are panels?

Panels may discuss any topic as long as it’s relevant to LLVM or related sub-projects. Panels can take many forms, but a common format is to begin with short introductions from each panel member, and follow with an interactive dialogue among the panelists and audience members. Panels should consist of 3 people including a moderator.

We have 1 complimentary reserved  registration for each accepted technical talk, BoF, or student research competition talk. Accepted tutorials have been reserved 2 complimentary registrations. Panels have up to 3 reserved registrations. There are no reserved registration spots for posters or lightning talks. So please register any additional speakers or if you do not have a reserved registration slot.

Detailed guidance on writing a proposal for the LLVM Developers’ Meeting

Writing a proposal for the LLVM Developers’ Meeting

This document is a guide to help you submit the best proposal and increase your chances of your proposal being accepted. The LLVM Developers’ Meeting program committee receives more proposals than can be accepted, so please read this guide carefully.

If you have never presented at an LLVM Developers’ 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 proposal.

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 gets a lot of proposals and does not have time to read 10 page papers for each submission (excluding SRC submissions).
  • 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.
  • Talks that have been presented at other technical conferences tend to not get accepted. If you have presented this topic before, make it clear what is new and different in your talk.


Technical Talk and SRC Talk  Proposal Template:
** Include in the extended abstract PDF attachment **

Title:
  • This will be displayed on the website, schedule, and signs. Keep it short and catchy to attract attendees to your talks. A couple of examples are “WebAssembly: Here Be Dragons” or “Beyond Sanitizers: guided fuzzing and security hardening”. There is also a field in the submission form for this same title.

Description:
  • 1-2 paragraphs. You can also use this for the Website Abstract field in the submission form.
  • We suggest you proof read and pay attention to grammar.

Details:
  • Here you can include more details about your talk. An outline, demo description, background of the speaker, etc. 1-2 paragraphs is usually sufficient.
  • This section will not be published and is intended for the PC to better understand how interesting your talk will be to the audience. For example, if you would prefer not to reveal some conclusions in the published abstract, explaining them here ensures that the PC can take them into account when evaluating your proposal.

SRC Paper:
  • If this is an SRC talk, please attach your paper as well.

Panel Talk Proposal Template:
** Include in the extended abstract PDF attachment **

Title:
  • This will be displayed on the website, schedule, and signs. These tend to be very straight forward about the area being discussed. An example is “Future directions and features for LLDB”. There is also a field in the submission form for this same title.

Description:
  • 1-2 paragraphs. May also be used for the website abstract field in the submission form.
  • Provide some talking points or potential subtopics.
  • We suggest you proof read and pay attention to grammar.

Details:
  • Provide additional details: goals of the panel, and example questions. Panels are to brainstorm and discuss ideas on a specific topic between the experts on the panel and the audience. You should also include detailed 2-3 sentence bios for each speaker on the panel. You may or may not include speaker names as the submissions are blind.

Tutorial Proposal Template:
** Include in the extended abstract PDF attachment **

Title:
  • This will be displayed on the website, schedule, and signs. Keep it short and catchy to attract attendees to your talks. There is also a field in the submission form for this same title.

Description:
  • 1-2 paragraphs. May also be used for the website abstract field in the submission form.
  • We suggest you proof read and pay attention to grammar.

Details:
  • Include additional details such as tutorial outline, what materials you will provide attendees, etc.
