    We invite you to submit session proposals to the 4th Annual Boost
    Conference: BoostCon 2010 (Aspen CO, USA, May 10-14, 2010).

    Traditionally the main face-to-face event for all things Boost
    (www.boost.org), BoostCon 2010 will present leading speakers from
    the whole C++ community. From using the Boost libraries to writing
    and maintaining them, from evangelizing to deploying Boost within
    your organization, from infrastructure and process to vision and
    mission, and the new C++ Standard, BoostCon brings together the
    sessions, the colleagues, and the inspiration to support your work
    with C++ and Boost in particular for the next year.

    To reflect the breadth of the Boost community, the conference
    includes sessions aimed at two constituencies: Boost end-users
    and hard-core Boost library and tool developers. The program
    fosters interaction and engagement within and across those two
    groups, with an emphasis on hands-on, participatory sessions.

    Session topics
    Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to, the

    * General tutorial sessions introducing one or more Boost
    * In-depth sessions on using specific Boost libraries
    * Case studies on using Boost
    * Experts panels
    * Advanced sessions on implementation techniques used within
    Boost libraries
    * C++0x and how it will change life for users and library writers
    * Development workshops to extend or enhance existing Boost
    * Workshops on design process
    * Infrastructure workshops such as Build tools, Website, Testing
    * Concepts and Generic Programming
    * Hardware and infrastructure presentations focused on how
    libraries can make better use of the technology
    * Other topics likely to be of great interest to Boost users and

    Interactive and collaborative sessions are encouraged, as this is
    the nature of both the on-line Boost community and the style of
    learning and participation that has proven most successful at
    such events. Sessions can be tutorial based, with an emphasis on
    interaction and participant involvement, or workshop based,
    whether hands-on programming or paper-based, discussion-driven
    collaborative work.

    Session formats
    Presentations focus on a practitioner's ideas and experience with
    anything relevant to Boost and Boost users.

    Panels feature three or four people presenting their ideas and
    experiences relating to Boost's relevant, controversial, emerging,
    or unresolved issues. Panels may be conducted in several ways,
    such as comparative, analytic, or historic.

    Tutorials are sessions at which instructors teach conference
    participants specific Boost-relevant skills.

    Workshops provide an active arena for advancements in Boost-
    relevant topics. Workshops provide the opportunity for experienced
    practitioners to develop new ideas about a topic of common interest
    and experience.

    Author's Corner Presentations
    These were introduced at BoostCon 2008, and were a great success.
    They are short (30 minute) sessions, focusing on tips on usage and
    design. In addition, we're looking to uncover the hidden design gems
    in Boost libraries.

    Tool Vendors Presentations
    We actively encourage tool vendors and ISP’s to submit proposals
    for a special Tool Vendors Session Track aimed at products related
    to Boost and C++ (compilers, libraries, tools, etc.).

    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
    Standard Sessions are 90 minutes. You may submit a proposal for
    fractions or multiples of 90-minutes. Fractional proposals will be
    grouped into 90 minute sessions covering related topics.
    Longer sessions, such as tutorials and classes, will be assigned 90
    minute, three hour (i.e. half day), or six hour (i.e. full day) time

    Please include:

    * The working title.
    * Type of session: presentation, panel, tutorial, workshop, authors
    corner, vendor track, other.
    * A paragraph or two describing the topic covered, suitable for the
    conference web site.
    * Proposed length: 10-20 minute short talks, 45 minutes, 90 minutes,
    half day, full day.
    * Alternate lengths, if you are willing to make adjustments: 10-20
    minute short-talks, 45 minutes, 90 minutes, half-day, full day.
    * Audience: users, developers, both.
    * Level: basic, intermediate, advanced.
    * A biography, suitable for the conference web site.
    * Your contact information (will not be made public).
