Meeting C++ Newsletter - March 2013
this is the 2nd edition of the Meeting C++ newsletter. This time focusing on this years Meeting C++ conference. Again this newsletter is being sent twice, once over meetingcpp.com and once to my C++ Group at Xing.
This Newsletter will focus on Meeting C++ 2013, this years C++ conference from Meeting C++. The next Newsletter in April will focus on the upcoming C++ Committee Meeting in Bristol.
Meeting C++ 2013
This years Meeting C++ Conference will be again at the 2nd Weekend of November (8./9.11.2013). This time the conference will take place at the Lindner Congresshotel in Düsseldorf. For this year there will be 25 Talks and up to 2 keynotes for the 250 attendees at the conference!
Like last year, this event is organized independently, covering most its costs over the ticket price. There will be 3 Tracks about C++ this year, with the 3rd track being a theme track about C++ and UI. Talks about Qt5, XAML, wxWidgets, GTK, Apps and QML could take place in this theme track. The other two tracks will offer general C++ talks like last year. We are looking again for sponsors, and already have one Gold Sponsor (KDAB) and one Silver Sponsor (Optiver). Early Bird Tickets are already available! More Details.
Call for Papers
Since the Announcement at the 12th March the Call for Papers is on its way. So far there are already a few very good submissions, next week the first talks from C++Now which will be also held at Meeting C++ will be published. The Call for Papers will last till the 15th May, and only end earlier, if 50 Talks are submitted. Then the Program Committee will do a vote on each talk. All talks will be send anonymously to the committee members, the combined vote then will show which talks should be at the conference. The talks from C++Now already have passed a committee, so they are allowed to 'bypass' ours.
You can submit your talk here.
There are a lot of new papers at isocpp.org for the next C++ Committee meeting.
