The C++Now 2020 Call For Submissions is open! We invite all members of the C++ community, including first time submitters, to submit session proposals to the 9th annual C++Now Conference: C++Now 2020 (Aspen CO, USA, May 3 – 8, 2020).
C++Now builds upon the resounding success of previous BoostCon and C++Now conferences. We look forward to considering your proposals. You will be joining leading speakers from the entire C++ community in making C++Now 2020 better than ever.

C++Now sessions should focus on the latest C++ standards (C++11/14/17/20). Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:
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.)
Most C++Now sessions are 90 minutes long, but sessions can be either shorter (45 minutes) or longer (multiples of 90 minutes). For 90 minute or longer sessions, registration will be waived for one presenter. For shorter sessions, registration will be prorated.
Many sessions take the form of a traditional presentation with a slide deck and a single speaker, but other formats are encouraged and supported, such as tutorials, live demos, etc.
For a list of session formats, see the Presenter Information page
All submissions should be made through our presenters page.
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.
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.
For any questions about the submission process, please contact the Program Committee firstname.lastname@example.org.
