CppCon 2014 Call for Submissions

cppcon-165.PNGCppCon announced today:

CppCon is the annual, week-long face-to-face gathering for the entire C++ community. The conference is organized by the C++ community for the community and so we invite you to present.

Have you learned something interesting about C++, maybe a new technique possible in C++11? Or perhaps you have implemented something cool related to C++, maybe a new C++ library? If so, consider sharing it with other C++ enthusiasts by giving a talk at CppCon 2014. Submissions deadline is May 15 with decisions sent by June 13. For topic ideas, possible formats, and submission instructions, see the Submissions page.

CppCon is organized by the C++ community for the community and so we invite the community to present.

Who Should Submit?

You. If you have something interesting to share with the C++ community then consider presenting. Our goal is to create the best program that we can and we feel that there must be room for both seasoned presenters and new voices.


We are open to any topic that will be of interest to a mainstream C++ audience. Below are some ideas.

  • C++11
  • C++ libraries and frameworks of general interest
  • C++14 and new standardization proposals
  • Parallelism/multi-processing
  • Concepts and generic programming
  • Functional programming
  • High performance computing
  • Software development tools, techniques, and processes for C++
  • Practical experiences using C++ in real-world applications
  • Industry-specific perspectives: mobile and embedded systems, game development, high performance trading, scientific programming, robotics, etc.


Standard presentation sessions are one hour long (including Q&A). We can accommodate half hour sessions and multi-hour submissions. Note that multi-hour submissions may be harder to accommodate. Please indicate your flexibility.

We will also have Lightning Talks, but they need not be submitted in advance. We will share more information about Lightning Talks and other opportunities for Open Content in time for you to plan your participation.
