CppCon 2023 Call for Submissions

CppCon is the annual, week-long (October 1st-6th, 2023) face-to-face gathering for the entire C++ community. The conference Main Program consists of five days of several concurrent tracks of sixty-minute sessions.

This conference is organized by the C++ Community for the C++ Community. We want the whole community to be represented. We especially encourage those who identify as coming from an underrepresented community to apply to present and to be present. Presenting a talk is not limited to previous presenters or previous attendees.

This year’s edition of CppCon will be onsite at the Gaylord Rockies in Aurora, Colorado.

Have you learned something interesting about C++, maybe a new technique possible in C++17/20/23? Or perhaps you have implemented something cool, maybe a new C++ library? Or perhaps have an idea for a future language or library feature that you want to advocate for? If so, consider sharing it with other C++ enthusiasts by giving a Main Program talk at CppCon 2023.

In the past year there has been great interest in C++ ‚Äúevolution‚ÄĚ or ‚Äúsuccessor‚ÄĚ languages. These are an important part of today‚Äôs C++ community, and so CppCon 2022 had well-received talks about Val and other such experiments. These talks are in scope for CppCon 2023, as long as they are of interest to C++ developers and tied to C++ evolution and are not primarily talks about rewriting entire C++ codebases in something other than C++. For example, a talk on How to migrate your C++ code to Haskell¬†is off-topic and will not be considered, but a talk on What C++ Programmers Can Learn from Swift, or What Rust Procedural Macros Might Look Like in C++, or Results of Val/Carbon/Circle Experiments That Could Be Incorporated Into ISO C++ Evolution¬†are on-topic and will be considered.

The submission deadline is June 25th, with decisions sent by July 31st.

To facilitate a double-blind review process, please avoid statements in your abstract that remove all uncertainty about who you are. See examples on the Submissions page.

We plan to have most (if not all) of the same tracks as last year, and we would like to add a few more. Each track will put out a call for submissions as we confirm their participation. If you plan to submit to a track, please indicate in your submission which track(s) you’d expect your talk to fit into. If you have new ideas for tracks or special interest areas to better serve the C++ community, please get in touch with the program committee directly with your thoughts.

For talk topic ideas, possible formats, submission instructions and valuable advice on how to make the best possible submission, see the Submissions page.

Note: Calls for Lightning Talks and Open Content sessions will be made later this summer. The deadline for these is the conference itself.

CppCon 2022 Call For Proposals Diversity Dinner

We’re happy to announce the Call For Proposals for our Diversity Dinner Event at CppCon 2022!

This year, CppCon’s Diversity Dinner, which will be held on-site at the Gaylord Rockies in Aurora on Wednesday, September 14th, will be expanded to include a workshop to discuss processes, experiences, and paths forward for improving diversity and inclusion in the C++ community. We are planning a series of 10-minute mini-talks, and we would like you to present at the event! Please submit your mini-talk proposal here¬†by 28 August 2022. You will be notified about the acceptance decision soon afterwards.

The 10-minute mini-talks should be relevant to our audience. While any proposals on the topic of diversity and inclusion in the C++ community are welcome, this year we would like to focus particularly on the empowerment of our attendees. For example, great topics would be anything from “What did I learn from my experience as a deaf software developer” to “How to negotiate to get a 30% raise” or “What’s the best way to get everyone’s input in a diverse team”. Feel free to share your experience, thoughts, and tips!

Whether you’d like to be a presenter, or just attend the Diversity Dinner, listen, and participate in the discussion, please make sure you register for CppCon and book your ticket for the Diversity Dinner.

We look forward to seeing many of you there!

CppCon 2022 Diversity & Attendance Support Ticket program

Again this year, CppCon is running a Diversity & Attendance Support Ticket program. These free tickets are for people who would not be able to attend otherwise. This is an open program, but reasons to apply may include financial assistance, that you are part of an underrepresented group in tech, and others.

In order to apply for this program, please fill in the application form here. The application deadline is August 21, 2022. 10 on-site and 20 on-line support tickets will be selected from all applications. Decisions will be sent by August 28.

CppCon 2022 Registration is Open

Registration DeskRegistration is now open for CppCon 2022, including CppCon Academy Classes.

The US has recently rescinded testing requirements for entering the US and the conference has updated its Covid Safety Policy for CppCon 2022 to be less restrictive. Please review the Covid Safety Policy before registering for onsite attendance.

For CppCon 2022, we are continuing with our very successful hybrid format providing for top quality engagement for attendees in Aurora, Colorado and also providing the CppCon experience for those that attend remotely.

We are offering two new registration options for online access. For organizations with many C++ developers, we are offering discount packages for online attendance, starting as low as $2000. Please review the options on the Registration Page and contact Greg Marr, CppCon Registrar for details.

We are also offering a new On-Demand Session Access which provides access to both online and onsite (rough-cut) recordings of sessions from shortly after the session concludes, until its edited version is posted on the CppCon YouTube channel. This is included with many conference registrations (as last year), but this year we are offering it stand-alone, without a conference registration.

Registration details are available on our registration page, but the high points are:

  • Substantial savings are available for¬†Early Bird registrations before the end of July 15th.

  • Onsite attendees have the option of registering for both onsite and online access or for onsite-only. Why would an onsite attendee want to include online registration? Only online attendees have access to online sessions and the virtual venue.
  • We are offering four online classes and over a dozen onsite classes.
  • We are also offering an¬†Economy registration that for onsite, doesn’t include the On-Demand access, “Meet the Presenters” Banquet, annual tee shirt, or souvenir that are included in Full registration and for online doesn’t include the On-Demand access included in the Online registration.
  • We have three options available for full-time students, Full, Economy, and Online, all of these include online and On-Demand access.

Visa application support for non-US attendees is available.

CppCon 2022 Call for Submissions

CppCon is the annual, week-long (September 11th-16th, 2022) face-to-face (and now also online) gathering for the entire C++ community. The conference Main Program consists of five days of several concurrent tracks of sixty-minute sessions.

This conference is organized by the C++ Community for the C++ Community. We want the whole community to be represented. We especially encourage those who identify as coming from an underrepresented community to apply to present and to be present. Presenting a talk is not limited to previous presenters or previous attendees.

We hope that everyone can join us onsite, but we know that some people cannot join us in Aurora this September. Leveraging our experience of serving the global C++ community online in the last two years and our many years of providing an unmatched in-person experience, this year’s CppCon will again be a hybrid conference with some presenters and attendees onsite in Aurora, Colorado, and some presenters and attendees online.

We are looking for presenters who can present in person and also for presenters who will be presenting remotely (presenter teams welcome). Submitters can apply for onsite, online or both. We understand that a submission is not a commitment and that situations may change. We are prepared to respond appropriately to changing situations that affect your availability. Our goal is always to present the best possible program to attendees, both onsite and online, and we look forward to working with you to achieve this.

Have you learned something interesting about C++, maybe a new technique possible in C++17/20/23? Or perhaps you have implemented something cool, maybe a new C++ library? Or perhaps have an idea for a future language or library feature that you want to advocate for? If so, consider sharing it with other C++ enthusiasts by giving a regular program talk at CppCon 2022.

The submissions deadline is June 24th, with decisions sent by July 31st.

To facilitate a double-blind review process, please avoid statements in your abstract that remove all uncertainty about who you are. See examples on the Submissions page.

In addition to the dedicated Back to Basics Track, Embedded Track, Scientific Computing Track, Software Design Track, and Tooling Track, we are looking for people with new ideas for tracks or specialities to better serve the C++ community.

For topic ideas, possible formats, submission instructions and valuable advice on how to make the best possible submission, see the Submissions page.

Note: Calls for Lightning Talks and Open Content sessions will be made later this summer. The deadline for these is the conference itself.
