At FOSDEM 2020, LLVM will again participate with a dedicated devroom,
on Saturday February 1st, in Brussels.

As possibly the largest European Open Source Conference, FOSDEM
attracts more than 600 lectures and over 8000 hackers - many core
contributors of the world’s leading open source projects.

Complementing the LLVM developer meetings, the devroom at FOSDEM
provides a great opportunity for LLVM developers and the wider open
source community to get together, connect and discuss.

We invite academic, industrial and hobbyist speakers to present their
work on developing or using LLVM, Clang, LLDB, Compiler-rt, MLIR,
flang, or any of the other technologies in the LLVM project.

We are looking for:

Keynote speakers.

Technical presentations (default length of 40 minutes including
questions) related to the development of LLVM technologies or use of
those technologies in other projects.


Lightning talks (default length of 5 minutes).


The deadline for receiving proposals is Sunday November 24th, 2019.

Speakers will be notified of acceptance or rejection by December 13th.
Please find some advice on what constitutes a good proposal at the end
of this CFP.

To submit a proposal, please create an account on the FOSDEM interface
(https://penta.fosdem.org/user/new_account). If you already have an
account from previous years, please reuse that.

Submit your proposal following
https://penta.fosdem.org/submission/FOSDEM20, “Create Event”.

Please make sure you select "LLVM devroom" as the "Track”.

Presentations will be recorded and streamed. Sending your proposal
implies giving permission to be recorded.


FOSDEM does not require any registration and is free of charge.


The mailing list llvm-devroom at lists.fosdem.org can be used to
discuss issues of general interest related to the conference
organization. Please, do not reply to this email, as it is cross
posted to many lists.

Financial support

There may be a possibility of limited funding to help presenters who
could not otherwise attend the conference.

If you need funding to be able to present at the meeting, or can help
provide sponsorship, please tell us on llvm-devroom at

Guidance on writing a proposal for the LLVM Dev Room

This is a guide to help you submit a good proposal and increase your
chances of your proposal being accepted.

If you have never presented at an LLVM meeting, then do not fear this
process. We are actively looking for new speakers who are excited
about LLVM and helping grow the community through these educational
talks! You do not need to be a long time developer to submit a

General Guidelines:

It should be clear from your abstract what your topic is, who your
target audience is, and what are the takeaways for attendees. The
program committee does not have time to read 10 page papers for each

Talks about the use of an LLVM technology should include details about
how LLVM is used and not only be about the resulting application.

Tutorials on “how to use X” in LLVM (or other subproject) are greatly
desired and beneficial to many developers. Entry level topics are
encouraged as well.

Typically a few paragraphs are sufficient.

Best regards,

LLVM @ FOSDEM organisers
