The RustConf 2017 call for proposals is now open!
The conference will devote one full day to Rust training delivered by the core
team, as well as a RustBridge event for jumping into Rust geared toward
groups that are underrepresented in the Rust community. That will be
followed by a day of talks and fun with the official Rust teams, users of
Rust, and the broader Rust community. Join us on August 18-19 in Portland, OR!
We'll gladly consider a wide variety of talks on Rust-related topics. Here's a
short list of possibilities to inspire you:
-- Libraries or frameworks
-- Experiences from production use
-- Best practices
-- Systems programming
-- Taking Rust to new places (embedded devices, FFI)
The CFP will be open from Thursday, April 27 through Sunday, May 28, 2017.
We'll be sending feedback in rounds, before our final talk selection, so you'll
have more opportunity to polish if you submit early.
Initial reviews and feedback in our CFP system are blind to author details. To
respect this process, please refrain from including biographical information in
your talk abstract or details. Note that this also means if you receive any
feedback, the reviewers don't know who you are. Again, refrain from identifying
yourself (or any existing relationships with the reviewer) in any exchanges as
part of this process.
Talks will be 30 minutes total; if you'd like time to take questions, plan for a
25 minute talk followed by questions.
If your talk is chosen you'll receive a free pass to attend the conference
(we'll refund already-purchased tickets so don't wait; tickets are very likely
to sell out!). We will also reimburse travel and accommodation expenses for all
RustConf is an inclusive, welcoming conference for everyone. Our Code of Conduct
can be found here.
If you or your employer might be able to help sponsor RustConf, please get in
touch. Every little bit helps!
