Call for Talks for Meeting C++ 2021

published at 08.06.2021 10:52 by Jens Weller

Last month I announced Meeting C++ 2021, and today I'd like to remind you that the call for talks will last about one more month...

Thats right, with being only online, I'm able to give the call for talks a bit more time. It then also fits nicely with my self speaking at the Meeting C++ online group in July about 9 years of Meeting C++ at July 8th. The extended the call for talks goes until Sunday, July 11th.

This years conference will be online, and its a unique opportunity to give a talk and start speaking! Maybe you'd like to learn something new about C++ and like to present what you've learned about a feature of the standard, library or methology? If your talk is accepted, you'd be able to give your talk from home or work, or somewhere that fits you best. If you have experience with video editing, you also could prerecord your talk.

While the dead line for submissions is extended, its best to submit early, you are still able to edit your submission later. Submit today online via the submissions form.

Valueing new speakers and diversity

Your talk is welcome and the C++ community values your contribution!

I do want to motivate you to submit if you are not in the common group of folks who usually speak at our conferences in C++. Your contribution is valuable to the C++ community, and it is always good to hear new voices and views on our language. And online speaking offers a unique opportunity that you can contribute to this years conference. As a first step you can join the #include discord if you have any questions about speaking or are looking for feedback on your talk ideas. Also joining Meeting C++ online gives you a first impression how online C++ events feel for you. Meeting C++ online and Meeting C++ 2021 run under the Berlin Code of Conduct.

Meeting C++ has supported diversity efforts for C++ for a long time, last year the conference hosted a panel on diversity, in Berlin this has been part of the lounge track in the past in a bit of a different format. Meeting C++ usually supports new speakers with a track of its own in Berlin for a few years now. I'm not sure if we have a full track of space in this year, but with enough submissions this might be the case again.
