Submissions for CppCon 2016

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++11/14
  • C++ libraries and frameworks of general interest
  • C++17 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.

Speaker Registration

Half and full session speakers will have their conference registration fee waived (one speaker per session). If you are planning to submit a proposal, please do not register for the conference at this time. You’ll be contacted with special registration instructions later.

Further financial assistance is available to speakers. Details are provided on request of the Speaker Liaison.


The title and abstract of a submission are of critical importance to the acceptance and success of a session. If you are a first-time submitter or just want some comments on your title and/or abstract, we invite you to send an email to our submission advice address. Please include your name in the subject line and include your session title, abstract, and any specific questions in the body. We’ve recruited a set of volunteers that will share ideas and comments on your submission before you submit it. Asking for this advice is optional, and the volunteers do not speak for the conference or the Program Committee, but may give you comments from a valuable perspective. (If you wish to use this option, do not wait. As the deadline approaches, response times on this service will lengthen.)

Submissions should be made on our session submission page. After making a submission, you’ll receive an acknowledgement from the EasyChair system. All submissions will go through a peer review process.

Presenters are encouraged, but not required, to submit slides and source code for distribution to attendees and to agree to have their sessions recorded. Presenters must agree to grant a non-exclusive perpetual license to publish submitted and/or recorded materials, either electronically or in print, in any media related to CppCon.

If you have any questions about the submission process, please contact the Program Committee.
