    5TH ANNUAL BOOST CONFERENCE 2011
    Aspen CO, USA, May 15 - 20, 2011, www.boostcon.com

    CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

    We invite you to submit session proposals to the 5th Annual Boost
    Conference:
    BoostCon 2011 (Aspen CO, USA, May 15 - 20, 2011).

    Traditionally the main face-to-face event for all things Boost
    (www.boost.org),
    BoostCon 2011 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 three constituencies: Boost end-users, hard-core Boost
    library and tool
    developers, and academics focusing on researcher. The program fosters
    interaction
    and engagement within and across those groups, with an emphasis on
    hands-on,
    participatory sessions.

    SESSION TOPICS

    Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to, the following:
    * General tutorial sessions introducing one or more Boost libraries
    * 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 changes life for users and library writers
    * Development workshops to extend or enhance existing Boost libraries
    * 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
    * Software development tools and their application to C++ and or Boost
    * Other topics likely to be of great interest to Boost users and
    developers

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

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

    Workshops
    -------------
    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 slots.

    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).
