CFP for the 6th European LLVM conference on March 17-18, 2016 in Barcelona, Spain

We are pleased to announce the 6th European LLVM conference on March 17-18, 2016 in Barcelona, Spain.

This will be a full two-day conference which aims to present the latest developments around LLVM and help strengthen the network of LLVM developers and users. The format will be similar to that of the previous meetings, with ample time for presentations, discussion, and networking between participants. The meeting is open to anyone whether from industry or academia, professional or enthusiast and is not restricted to those from Europe - attendees from all regions are welcome !

EuroLLVM 2016 will be held at Princesa Sofia Hotel (, collocated with the International Compiler Construction conference ( and CGO (

We invite academic, industrial and hobbyist speakers to present their work on developing or using LLVM, Clang, etc. Proposals for technical presentations, posters, workshops, demonstrations and BoFs are welcome. Material will be chosen to cover a broad spectrum of themes and topics at various depths, some technical deep-diving, some more community focused.

We are looking for:

  • Keynote speakers.

  • Technical presentations (30 minutes plus questions and discussion) related to the development of LLVM, Clang, LLD, LLDB, Polly, …

  • Presentations relating to academic or commercial use of LLVM, Clang etc.

  • Lightning talks (5 minutes, no questions, no discussion).

  • Workshops and in-depth tutorials (1-2 hours - please specify in your submission).

  • Poster presentations.

  • Birds of a Feather sessions (BoFs).

Important dates
The deadline for receiving submissions is January 25, 2016.

Speakers will be notified of acceptance or rejection by February 15th, 2016.

Submissions should be done using the Easychair platform:

Please note that presentation materials and videos for the technical sessions will be posted on after the conference. We have reserved additional spots for speakers, such that they can attend the conference even though we have reached our registration limit.

In terms of submission style, we are looking for:

  • A title and an extended abstract,
  • A title, abstract and slides.

Please make clear the status of the slides (are they a skeleton of your presentation with the detail missing ?), or, perhaps a section of detail that lacks introduction and conclusions? Also make sure to give enough information in the extended abstract: the more you can give us and tell us the easier it will be for us to be positive about your submission.

Proposals that are not sufficiently detailed (talks lacking a comprehensive abstract for example) are likely to be rejected. Slides and posters must be in PDF format.

About LLVM
The LLVM Infrastructure 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 analyse 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.
