CppCon 2021 Call for Submissions

CppCon is the annual, week-long (October 24th-29th, 2021) face-to-face (and now also online) gathering for the entire C++ community. The conference is organized by the C++ community for the community and so we invite you to present. The conference regular program consists of five days of sixty minute sessions.

CppCon videoLeveraging our experience of serving the global C++ community from last year’s very successful online CppCon, and our many years of providing an unmatched in-person experience, this fall’s CppCon will be a hybrid conference with  some presenters and other attendees onsite in Aurora, Colorado, and some presenters and other attendees online.

We hope that everyone can join us onsite, but we know that some people can’t or won’t be able to join us in Aurora this October. 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 an onsite session, an online session, or both (indicating which they’d prefer). 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 2021.

The submissions deadline is July 19th, with decisions sent by August 30th.

In addition to the dedicated Back to Basics Track and Embedded 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.

Please also watch for Call for Authors and Call for Volunteers coming soon.
