LLVM Developers' Meeting - Call for "Papers" deadline reminder!

What, the deadline is tomorrow?!?

The deadline for proposals snuck up on me, and I’m sure many of you forgot as well. Therefore, I am extending the deadline.

I have received some great talk proposals, so keep them coming. However, I have very few tutorials, BoFs, posters, or lightening talk proposals. So please, get those proposals in and lets make this year the best developer meeting yet!

The deadline for proposals for talks, tutorials, BoFs, posters has been extended to September 15, 2013 midnight PDT.

Call for Papers:

All developers and users of LLVM and related sub-projects are invited to present their work at the 2013 LLVM Developers’ Meeting. Proposals for technical talks, tutorials, posters, and BoFs are welcome.

We are looking for the following proposals:

  • Technical Talks on LLVM Infrastructure
  • Technicals Talks on related subprojects (Clang, etc)
  • Talks of uses of LLVM in academia or industry
  • Talks on new projects using Clang or LLVM
  • Lightening Talks (5 minutes)
  • In depth Tutorials about LLVM (~60 minutes)
  • Posters
  • Birds of a Feather

The submission deadline is September 15, 2013 midnight PDT.

Please submit at least the following:

  1. Name, title, association
  2. Abstract and/or extended abstract

Please submit your proposal by email to Tanya Lattner (tonic@nondot.org). Notification of acceptance will occur within two weeks of the submission deadline. Spots have been reserved for attendees, so you do not need to worry about registration.

All presentation material and videos will be posted online following the conference.


And a reminder about registration… we are filling up fast, so please register early and please cancel if you can not attend.

Registration is now open!

The registration fee is $125 and goes 100% to fund the conference. If you need financial assistance for registration fee, please email Tanya Lattner (tonic@nondot.org). We may reach our cap of 300 attendees well before the October 1st registration deadline, so register early!

Please visit the LLVM Developers’ webpage (now updated!) for more information about the event:



Here is a proposal on

  • Talks on new projects using Clang
  1. Name, title, association: Juan J. Lopez-Villarejo, Postdoc, IPhT-CEA-Saclay
  2. Abstract and/or extended abstract

Documenting C++ code through flowcharts, generated from special comments.

We present an annotation grammar for special comments inside a C/C++ source code, such as Doxygen’s. Together, these comments have the potential to create flowcharts (activity diagrams), showing the actual workings of the code. This provides information on the dynamics, rather than Doxygen’s static documentation (classes/objects diagrams). It is specially useful for procedural programming: instead of truly Object Oriented, the code is rather Object Based. This is the scenario in many Physics applications, such as the VINCIA project for LHC Physics (vincia.hepforge.org).
The implementation of a tool that interprets those (contextual) comments would be based on clang AST and a diagram generator (such as graphviz, PlantUML or UMLet). Scientific collaborations are encouraged.

Just a reminder that the deadline is midnight tonight!
