Call for Proposals
We’re opening a total of 10-12 speaker slots. Talks are 30 minutes long, including Q&A.
Rust is a new language so all papers are welcome. If you have been working on something for only 6 months, but it’s interesting, then apply!
Where do I head to?
Read the Submission Guide and submit.
In the first instance our CFP selection process is based only on title and abstract.
Rustfest has a Mentorship program. You will have a mentor assigned to you for your talk. See our Mentorship Guide for details. To register as a mentor, just sign up and tick the box in your profile.
Check out this Rust Community Talks repository for inspiration. Aside from looking at what other people have requested, here are some ideas:
- Typical Rust gotchas or Rust for beginner programmers
- Understanding trickier bits of Rust the language (borrow checker, marker traits, trait objects, unsafety)
- What’s new or coming up in the latest version of Rust (similar to http://this-week-in-rust.org/ )
- How to contribute to Rust community
- Demonstrate your/someone else’s rust library X to solve problem Y
- Anything Cargo (tips, tricks, integration with other builds)
- The history of Rust (e.g. scrapped features, motivations, pivotal RFCs)
- Rust FFI/how to integrate with common C libraries
- Rust usage in a popular project (e.g. Servo, Piston, etc), or a project of your own (no matter how trivial!)
- Rust for gamedev/real-time/embedded systems
- How Rust and LLVM work together or how other bits of the Rust compiler work
- Embedding other languages in Rust, or embedding Rust in other languages
- Testing, benchmarking, profiling, debugging, REPL, IDE, editor experiences/tips/tricks/tools
- Stories about solving bugs, compilation errors, or production experiences
We will give more details once CFP opens.
