The C++Now 2017 Call For Submissions is open. We invite you to submit session proposals to the 6th annual C++Now Conference: C++Now 2017 (Aspen CO, USA, May 15 – 20, 2017).
C++Now builds upon the resounding success of previous BoostCon and C++Now conferences, We look forward to considering your proposals, among those from leading speakers from the entire C++ community, to make C++Now 2017 even better.
The C++Now Conference is dedicated to discussion and education about C++, an open and free language and standard. Our Conference will focus on discussion and education about open source software usage and developments in the C++ developer and user community. To reflect the breadth of the C++ and Boost communities, the conference includes sessions aimed at three constituencies: C++ and Boost end-users, hard-core library and tool developers, and researchers pushing the boundaries of computing. The program fosters interaction and engagement within and across those groups, with an emphasis on discussion.
As a multi-paradigm language, C++ is a melting pot with the most compelling ideas from other programming communities blended in powerful ways. Historically, some of the most popular sessions at C++Now have highlighted these concepts, from DSLs to functional programming to transactional memory and more. Bring your C#, Python, Ruby or Haskell influences to bear in an environment that will broaden their exposure.
Presentations at C++Now 2017 should generally focus on the now established C++11 and C++14 standards, the upcoming C++17 standard, and how those standards shape C++’s future. However, by no means is this intended to restrict the topics of proposals we hope to see. Any other topic related to C++, as described below, is suitable for submission.

|Proposal submissions due||February 3rd (Note this date cannot and will not be extended.)|
|Proposal decisions sent||February 27nd|
|Program online||March 20th|
Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to, the following:
- C++11/14/17 and how it changes life for users and library writers
- New directions and proposals for upcoming C++ standards
- Concepts and generic programming
- Designing for testability and testing best practices
- Using specific Boost libraries in depth
- Extending or enhancing existing Boost libraries
- Advanced implementation techniques used in Boost libraries
- The design and/or development process
- Software development tools and/or their application to C++ and/or Boost
- Boost infrastructure topics such as build tools, website, testing
- Any other topics likely to be of great interest to C++ developers
- Tools for better developer productivity
Interactive and collaborative sessions are encouraged, as this is the style of learning and participation that has proven most successful at these events. Sessions can be tutorial, with an emphasis on interaction and participant involvement, or workshops, whether hands-on programming or paper-based, discussion-driven collaborative work.
We actively encourage tool vendors and ISP’s to submit proposals about products related to Boost and C++ (compilers, libraries, tools, etc.). We discourge proposals about marketing, but are always interested in technology and its applications.
Lectures focus on a practitioner’s ideas and experience with anything relevant to the C++ community.
Tutorials are sessions at which instructors teach conference participants specific skills or knowledge relevant to C++.
Workshops provide an active arena for advancements in C++-relevant topics. Workshops provide the opportunity for experienced practitioners to develop new ideas about a topic of common interest and experience.
Case Studies are reports on a particular project or projects that attempted something new and the results of the experience.
Panels feature three or four people presenting their ideas and experiences relating to C++’s relevant, controversial, emerging, or unresolved issues. Panels may be conducted in several ways, such as comparative, analytic, or historic and usually feature interaction between participants as well as Q&A with the audience.
Demonstrations show attendees what a particular process, product, technique, or library is capable of and how it is best used.
Other formats may also be of interest. Don’t hold back a proposal just because it doesn’t fit into a pigeonhole.
Submitting a Proposal
All submissions should be made through our submission page: here.
The conference schedule is based upon 90-minute sessions with breaks between. Shorter presentations will be grouped, when possible, to fill a 90 minute slot and longer presentations will be split across multiple sessions.
One registration fee is waived for a 90 minute presentation. Shorter sessions are prorated.
Submissions are considered for inclusion in the program by a peer review process.
Session materials will be shared with the C++ community on the C++Now website.
For general information on the C++Now 2017 paper submission process or the scope of technical papers solicited, please refer to the conference website at cppnow.org. For any other questions about the submission process or paper format, please contact the Program Committee firstname.lastname@example.org .
Note: Presenters must agree to grant a non-exclusive, perpetual license to publish materials submitted to C++Now, either electronically or in print, in any media related to C++Now.
C++Now is presented by Boost in-cooperation with ACM.
