Teresa Johnsons Center Keynote: ThinLTO Whole Program Optimization: Past, Present and Future

by Jens Weller

From the article:

Whole program optimization enables higher performance in C++ applications, because of the expanded scope for analysis and optimization.

ACCU 2021 Call for Papers -- ACCU

The ACCU is now putting together its program, and they want you to speak on C++. The ACCU conference has strong C++ tracks, though it is not a C++-only conference. If you have something to share, check out their

Call for Papers

by the ACCU

About the conference:

The ACCU 2021 will be from 2021-03-10 to 2021-03-13, with a pre-conference workshops on 2021-03-09.

The ACCU 2021 will be an online event because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Historically, ACCU has a lot of C++ and C content, and is proud of that: ACCU is the foremost annual conference for people interested in C++ and C, at least in and around the UK. But it is not just a C++ and C conference, ACCU is about programming in whatever language people are using, with whatever tools and processes people are using: D, Chapel, Java, Kotlin, C#, F#, Groovy, Rust, Go, Python, Ruby, Lisp, to name just a few programming languages about which there have been sessions at ACCU conferences. Git, Mercurial, CMake, Meson, TDD, BDD, allthese tools and techniques have been the focus of sessions at ACCU. The ACCU Conference is looking for sessions that will be interesting to people who create software.
The ACCU Conference is put on by ACCU (https://accu.org), but is open to anyone who wishes to be there either as a presenter or an attender.

The Call for Papers lasts for about 3 weeks and will close on Friday 2020-11-13 23:59 GMT

With this post I'd like to give you the details for the onsite event in Berlin in November 2020.

So this is the up to date information. And I assume for some of you its something to look forward to, to enjoy a real conference with actual people in 2020. The tickets for Berlin are available, and these include access to the online event.
