The LLVM Developers' Meeting is a bi-annual 2 day gathering of the entire LLVM Project community. The conference is organized by the LLVM Foundation and many volunteers within the LLVM community. Developers and users of LLVM, Clang, and related subprojects will enjoy attending interesting talks, impromptu discussions, and networking with the many members of our community. Whether you are a new to the LLVM project or a long time member, there is something for each attendee.
What can you can expect at an LLVM Developers' Meeting?
- Technical Talks
- These 20-30 minute talks cover all topics from core infrastructure talks, to project's using LLVM's infrastructure. Attendees will take away technical information that could be pertinent to their project or general interest.
- Tutorials are 50-60 minute sessions that dive down deep into a technical topic. Expect in depth examples and explanations.
- Lightning Talks
- These are fast 5 minute talks that give you a taste of a project or topic. Attendees will hear a wide range of topics and probably leave wanting to learn more.
- Panel sessions are guided discussions about a specific topic. The panel consists of ~3 developers who discuss a topic through prepared questions from a moderator. The audience is also given the opportunity to ask questions of the panel.
- Student Research Competition
- Students present their research using LLVM or related subproject. These are usually 20 minute technical presentations with Q&A. The audience will vote at the end for the winning presentation and paper.
- Poster Session
- An hour long poster session where selected posted are on display.
- Round Table Discussions
- Informal and impromptu discussions on a specific topic. During the conference there are set time slots where groups can organize to discuss a problem or topic.

Women in Compilers and Tools Workshop
The LLVM Foundation will host a half day Women in Compilers and Tools Workshop held the day before the 2019 LLVM Developers’ Meeting - Bay Area. The workshop will be held at the Fairmont Hotel on October 21st from 12:30-5:30PM and includes a cocktail reception.
This event aims to connect women in the field of compilers and tools and provide them with ideas and techniques to overcome barriers or enhance their careers. It also is open to anyone (not just women) who are interested in increasing diversity within the LLVM community, their workplace or university.
More details will be coming soon but registration is open.
An online schedule with dates/times will be posted closer to the conference.
