- For your attention, the
2018 ACCU conference is being held April 11-14 at the same venue in
Bristol. ACCU is about programming in whatever language, from C/C++ to D,
Java, C#, F#, Groovy, Rust, Go, Python.
The meeting serves as a forum for LLVM, Clang, LLDB and other LLVM project
developers and users to get acquainted, learn how LLVM is used, and exchange
ideas about LLVM and its (potential) applications. The conference will be
two full days that include technical talks, BoFs, hacker’s lab, tutorials,
a poster session and a reception.
We believe the event will be of particular interest to the following
- Active developers of projects in the LLVM Umbrella
(LLVM core, Clang, LLDB, libc++, compiler_rt, klee, lld, etc).
- Anyone interested in using these as part of another project.
- Compiler, programming language, and runtime enthusiasts.
- Those interested in using compiler and toolchain technology in novel
and interesting ways.
Please sign up for the
LLVM Developers' Meeting list for future announcements and to ask questions.

We would like this event to be accessible to all LLVM developers. If
attending the meeting is cost prohibitive for any reason (i.e.. you do not have
an employer who refunds tickets fees, financial hardship, etc), please contact
the LLVM Foundation to discuss a discounted

- When will I be notified of acceptance? -
Our goal is to notify all proposal submitters by February 22, 2018.
- Should I register if I have submitted a proposal? -
We have 1 complimentary reserved registration for each accepted technical
talk, BoF, or student research competition talk. Accepted tutorials have
been reserved 2 complimentary registrations. Panels have up to 3 reserved
registrations. There are no reserved registration spots for posters or
lightning talks. Please register any additional speakers or if you do not
have a reserved registration slot.
- What if I registered and my talk got accepted? -
We can refund your registration fee and instructions will be sent following
the notification. If you plan to attend even if your proposal is not accepted
and are worried about the event selling out, we suggest registering before
notification of acceptance.
- What if I registered and my talk did NOT get accepted? -
We can refund your registration fee if you no longer wish to attend if you
contact the organizer by March 2, 2018.
- What will be recorded? -
All technical talks, tutorials, SRC talks, panels, and lightning talks will
be recorded. By submitting your proposal, you are giving us permission to
record if you present at the meeting. For SRC talks, you have the option to
delay publication of the slides and video for your talk for up to 12 months.
- Are there any guidelines to help me write a good proposal ? - Yes !
Please find them here.
- Are we really using a blind submission policy? -
We do want blind submission for the SRC, but unfortunately it isn’t possible to
selectively enable it for different categories of submission. The PC chair can
deanonymise submissions and most non-SRC submissions are likely to include some
deanomymising information. Non-SRC submissions don't have to care about
anomymisation, but we would appreciate anonymized submissions f possible for
the SRC, although no submission will be penalised as a result of not being
- Who is on the program committee? -
