Euro LLVM Conference, Paris, 29-30 April 2013

We are pleased to announce the third European LLVM conference on April 29-30 2013 in Paris, France.

This will be a two day conference which aims to present the latest developments in the LLVM world and help strengthen the network of LLVM developers. The format will be similar to that of the previous meetings held in London but with more time for presentations and networking. The meeting is open to anyone whether from business or academia, professional or enthusiast and is not restricted to those from Europe - attendees from all regions are welcome.

This meeting will be hosted by the Ecole Normale Supérieure (http://www.ens.fr/), located in the center of Paris.

= Call for Speakers, Posters, Demos =

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 surface-scratching.

We are looking for:
1. Keynote speakers.
2. Technical presentations (30 minutes plus questions and discussion)
    related to development of LLVM, Clang etc.
3. Presentations relating to academic or commercial use of LLVM, Clang
    etc.
4. Workshops and in-depth tutorials (1-2 hours - please specify in your
    submission).

The deadline for receiving submissions is March 1st, 2013. Speakers will be notified of acceptance or rejection by the 15th of March. 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. Submissions should be done by email at:

  euro-llvm-2013-technical-committee@googlegroups.com.

Please note that presentation materials and videos for the technical sessions will be posted on llvm.org after the conference.

= Registration =

Registration is now open at http://goo.gl/Vilq0 on a first come, first served basis, free of charge. Please send your details (name, email,
company/institution). Attendance will be limited to about 150.

A dinner will be provided on Monday evening (29th April) - this will also be free of charge. Please include whether you'll be attending the dinner on the registration form.

= Organisation =

The mailing list llvm-devmeeting@cs.uiuc.edu can be used to discuss issues of general interest related to the conference organization, such as suggestions for special kinds of side-sessions.

= Financial Support =

There may be a possibility of limited funding to help students or contributors who could not otherwise attend the conference. This will depend on overall sponsorship and companies' interest in supporting the event.

If you need funding to attend the meeting, or can help sponsor, please tell us on the registration form.

= About LLVM =

The Low-Level Virtual Machine (LLVM) 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.
