    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 research. The program fosters interaction and
    engagement within and across those groups, with an emphasis
    on hands-on, participatory sessions.


    Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to,
    the following:
    * 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 changes 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,
    * 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.


    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.


    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).


    All submissions have to be done through the EasyChair conference
    management system:
    If you have not already registered at EasyChair, you will need to
    do so in order to submit your proposal.

    All submissions will go through a peer review process.

    Authors are invited (but are not required) to submit PDF versions
    of full papers of up to 10 pages in ACM conference proceedings format
    (see http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates).
    The full papers are not required unless you want them published in
    the proceedings.

    All accepted proposals will be made available in the Association for
    Computing Machinery (ACM) Digital Library (approval pending). Best
    papers, after further reviews, will be considered to be book
    chapters or journal articles in a renowned journal.

    The session materials go on the BoostCon website and will be
    available to attendees.

    For general information on the BoostCon 2011 paper submission or
    the scope of technical papers solicited, please refer to the
