We are inviting speakers to propose talks in the community building, DEI, and Community.o areas in addition to traditional technical talks. Typically we have had a pre-conference event for Community.o, but we plan to integrate this within the conference and have more informal discussions/workshop the day before. We encourage anyone (even those outside the LLVM community) to propose a talk in this category that can benefit the LLVM community.

We are looking for the following proposals:

  • Technical Talks (20 minutes): Talks on: LLVM Infrastructure, MLIR, Clang, all LLVM sub-projects, community building, Community.o, DEI in LLVM/Compilers/OSS, uses of LLVM in academia or industry, and new projects using Clang, LLVM, MLIR, etc.
  • Tutorials (40-50 minutes*): In depth talks on LLVM infrastructure, other core libraries, tools, beginner/newcomer talks, community building, etc. Demos encouraged.
  • Student Technical Talks (15 minutes): Talks from students using LLVM and all sub-projects in research. This is not a competition, but a specific category for student talks.
  • Quick Technical Talks (10 minutes): Quick talks about a use or improvement of LLVM and other sub-projects, LLVM community, Community.o, etc.
  • Lightning Talks (5 minutes) Lightning fast talks about a use or improvement of LLVM and other sub-projects, LLVM community, Community.o, etc.
  • Panels (45 minutes*): Panels may discuss any topic as long as it’s relevant to LLVM, Community.o, or other 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 will be capped at 4 panelists and 1 moderator. Please determine your panelists before your submission.
  • Poster: Present a poster during the assigned poster session during the event.

* Exact times TBD after talks selected and the schedule planned

For each proposal you must submit the following:

  • Talk title
  • Short 1 Paragraph Abstract - Used on the agenda and directed at attendees
  • Detailed Abstract (1-3 paragraph description of your talk)
  • Submission type
  • For technical talk submissions, you can indicate if you would give a shorter talk (ie. Lightning or Quick instead of full length Technical Talk)
  • Photo and bios for all speakers
