Please submit your proposal here:

For each proposal, please submit a title and short abstract (to be used on the website) and attach/upload either an extended abstract (1 page maximum) or slides. We ask that you do not submit a full length paper as your only attachment as reviewer time is limited. For the submission, you will need to note who the speaker is. If there is more than one speaker, please mention it in the abstract.

New this year: Panels!
New this year is the addition of panels. Panels may discuss any topic as long as its relevant to LLVM or related sub-projects. Panels can take many forms, but a common format is to begin with an introduction of the panel members, have short presentations from each panel member, and follow with an interactive dialogue among the panelists and audience members. Panels should consist of 3-5 people including a moderator. When submitting a panel proposal, please note who will be the moderator, panel speakers, and what format your panel will take.


When will I be notified of acceptance?

Our goal is to notify all proposal submitters by October 1, 2016.

Should I register if I have submitted a proposal?

We have reserved 1 registration for each accepted technical talk or BoF. Accepted tutorials have been reserved 2 registrations. There are no reserved registration spots for posters or lightning talks.

What if I registered and my talk got accepted?

We can refund your registration fee. If you plan to attend even if your proposal is not accepted and are worried about the event selling out, we suggest registering before notification of acceptance.

What will be recorded?

All technical talks, tutorials, panels, and lightning talks will be recorded. By submitting your proposal, you are giving us permission to record if you present at the meeting.

Who is on the program committee?

The program committee is composed of active developers of the LLVM, Clang, and related sub-communities.

I have a question, who do I contact?

Please email Tanya Lattner (tanyalattner@llvm.org) or the LLVM Developers’ Meeting mailing list.
