DConf 2015 Call for Submissions

Please join us at DConf 2015, the conference of the D programming language at Utah Valley University in Orem, UT, May 27-29 2015.

We are thrilled to benefit of the generous hosting of Utah Valley University's Computer Science Department at its beautiful campus. UVU/CS has an excellent track record of preparing students for real-world software engineering jobs, and has been a long-time supporter of D by teaching it to its students. Special thanks are due Department Chair Chuck Allison.

The D programming language has continued to grow through 2014, undergoing a three-fold increase of dmd daily downloads from the main site. Quality and stability have improved all across the board for dmd, gdc, ldc, and the standard library.

DConf is the main face-to-face event for everyone and everything related to the D language and environment. Utah Valley University will host the conference at its campus in Orem, UT. We aim at making this next edition even bigger, better, and badder than DConf 2014!

Call for Submissions

We are looking forward to your submission for a paper, talk, demo, or panel for DConf 2015. The topics of choice are anything and everything related to the D language. Such include:

But don't be constrained! Originality in topics and formats is warmly encouraged. If it is relevant to the D language, it fits. Just mind the guidelines and don't forget the deadlines below.
