C++Now 2017 Call for Submissions is Live

C++Now 2017 will be held in Aspen, May 15–20, 2017.

C++Now 2017 Call for Submissions

From the invitation:

C++Now builds upon the resounding success of previous BoostCon and C++Now conferences, We look forward to considering your proposals, among those from leading speakers from the entire C++ community, to make C++Now 2017 even better.

The C++Now Conference is dedicated to discussion and education about C++, an open and free language and standard.  Our Conference will focus on discussion and education about open source software usage and developments in the C++ developer and user community. To reflect the breadth of the C++ and Boost communities, the conference includes sessions aimed at three constituencies: C++ and Boost end-users, hard-core library and tool developers, and researchers pushing the boundaries of computing. The program fosters interaction and engagement within and across those groups, with an emphasis on discussion.

As a multi-paradigm language, C++ is a melting pot with the most compelling ideas from other programming communities blended in powerful ways. Historically, some of the most popular sessions at C++Now have highlighted these concepts, from DSLs to functional programming to transactional memory and more.  Bring your C#, Python, Ruby or Haskell influences to bear in an environment that will broaden their exposure.

Presentations at C++Now 2017 should generally focus on the now established C++11 and C++14 standards, the upcoming C++17 standard, and how those standards shape C++’s future. However, by no means is this intended to restrict the topics of proposals we hope to see. Any other topic related to C++, as described below, is suitable for submission.

This year’s window for submitting is shorter than normal. Submissions must be in by February 3rd, less than four weeks away.

Report from using std::cpp 2016—Daniel Garcia

Daniel Garcia reports from the recent std::cpp conference:

Conference Report

by Daniel Garcia

From the report:

Last November 24th we had the fourth edition of using std::cpp, our annual spanish conference on C++ for professional developers. The conference is a one-day free event held every year at University Carlos III of Madrid, in Leganés. We had around 200 registered attendees (most of them professional developers).

We would like to share some answers from the evaluation questionaries:

  • 75% of attendees were professional developers, 14% were students, and 11% were academics.
  • 92% declared they use regularly C++.
  • The most popular version of C++ was C++11 (73%), followed by C++98/03 (63%) and C++14 (21%). Note that you could vote for more than one. However, no one declared to make use of any extension or TS.
  • Most popular compiler was gcc (60%), followed by Microsoft (57%), and clang++ (14%).
  • When we asked for domains a found a split among multiple sectors: telco (20%), aerospace/naval (11%), civil engineering (9%), bank/finance/insurance (7%), developer tools (7%), videogames (6%), research/academia (4%), transport (4%), industrial manufacturing (2%).

Announcing the lounge track for Meeting C++ 2016

Something new at Meeting C++ this year: a track dedicated to meetups!

Announcing the Lounge Track

by Jens Weller

From the Article:

If you look at the schedule, you might notice two changes. Most visible is that there is now a floor plan for the conference. The other one is very subtle: the breaks now have a hint for a 6th track.

ACCU 2017 Call for session—ACCU

The ACCU 2017 is now putting together its program, and they want you to speak on C++. The ACCU has a strong C++ track, though it is not a C++-only conference. If you have something to share, check out their

Call for Sessions

by the ACCU

From the article:

We have a long tradition of high quality sessions covering many aspects of software development, from programming languages (e.g. C, C++, D, C#, Go, Rust, Clojure, Erlang, Groovy, Haskell, Java, JavaScript, ECMAScript, Python, Ruby, Scala, etc.), and technologies (libraries, frameworks, databases, etc.) to subjects about the wider development environment such as testing, architecture and design, development process, analysis, patterns, project management, and softer aspects such as team building, communication and leadership. See the 2016 schedule for examples.

The Call for Sessions lasts 7 weeks and will close at midnight Friday 2016-12-02.

4th Spanish C++ conference using std::cpp 2016 (spanish)

At the 24th of November at Leganés in Madrid in Spain, for the fourth year in a row the one day event using std::cpp will gather professional developers in a series of talks devoted exclusively to C++.

About using std::cpp

The using std::cpp event has been happening every year since 2013 in University Carlos III (Leganes, Madrid, Spain), where every year around 200 developers have gathered to share experiences in using C++ for professional software develpment.

The event is organized by ARCOS Lab (University Carlos III), a research group focused in applications of high performance computing to multiple domains. It is also sponsored by Indizen Technologies.
