Writing a Proposal Guide

Detailed guidance on writing a proposal for the LLVM Developers’ Meeting

Writing a proposal for the LLVM Developers’ Meeting

This document is a guide to help you submit the best proposal and increase your chances of your proposal being accepted. The LLVM Developers’ Meeting program committee receives more proposals than can be accepted, so please read this guide careful.

If you have never presented at an LLVM Developers’ Meeting, then do not fear this process. We are actively looking for new speakers who are excited about LLVM and helping grow the community through these educational talks! You do not need to be a long time developer to submit a proposal.

General Guidelines:

It should be clear from your abstract what your topic is, who your targeted audience is, and what are the takeaways for attendees. The program committee gets a lot of proposals and does not have time to read 10 page papers for each submission (excluding SRC submissions).

Talks about a use of LLVM (etc) should include details about how LLVM is used and not only be about the resulting application. Tutorials on “how to use X” in LLVM (or other subproject) are greatly desired and beneficial to many developers. Entry level topics are encouraged as well.

Talks that have been presented at other technical conferences tend to not get accepted. If you have presented this topic before, make it clear what is new and different in your talk.

Technical Talk and SRC Talk Proposal Template:

** Place in Abstract Text Box on the Submission Form **

Title:
This will be displayed on the website, schedule, and signs. Keep it short and catchy to attract attendees to your talks. A couple of examples are “WebAssembly: Here Be Dragons” or “Beyond Sanitizers: guided fuzzing and security hardening”.

Speaker Name(s), Company, Email:
This should be only the people giving the talk. HotCRP allows you to list authors but not speakers. We also recommend you put speakers only in the HotCRP “Contact” field so they are the ones contacted regarding conference details.

Important: HotCRP is set to blind submissions. Use the "Contact" Field if you want to make sure your submission is fully blind.

Description:

Details: Here you can include more details about your talk. An outline, demo description, background of the speaker, etc. 1-2 paragraphs is sufficient usually. This section will not be published and is intended for the PC to better understand how interesting your talk will be to the audience. For example, if you would prefer not to reveal some conclusions in the published abstract, explaining them here ensures that the PC can take them into account when evaluating your proposal.

SRC Paper:
If this is an SRC talk, please attached your paper.

BoF Talk Proposal Template:

** Place in Abstract Text Box on the Submission Form **

Title:
This will be displayed on the website, schedule, and signs. These tend to be very straight forward about the area being discussed. An example is “Future directions and features for LLDB”.

Speaker Name(s), Company, Email:
This should be only the people giving the talk. HotCRP allows you to list authors but not speakers. We also recommend you put speakers only in the HotCRP “Contact” field so they are the ones contacted regarding conference details.

Description:
1-2 paragraphs. Keep in mind that this is displayed on the schedule and website for attendees to consider when selecting which BoFs to attend.Provide some talking points or potential subtopics. We suggest you proof read and pay attention to grammar.

Details:
Provide additional details: goals of the BoF, presentation style. BoFs are to brainstorm ideas on a specific topic but you will be more successful if you have a guided discussion with talking points and actionable items at the end.
