GNU Tools Cauldron

We are pleased to announce another gathering of GNU tools developers. The basic format of this meeting will be similar to the previous meetings. However this year the meeting will be immediately preceded by the first ever LLVM Cauldron.

The purpose of this workshop is to gather all GNU tools developers, discuss current/future work, coordinate efforts, exchange reports on ongoing efforts, discuss development plans for the next 12 months, developer tutorials and any other related discussions.

This time, the GNU Tools Cauldron will form the closing weekend of the Wuthering Bytes technology festival in Hebden Bridge in the UK. Situated at the heart of the UK's "Northern Powerhouse", Hebden Bridge is roughly equidistant from Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield, Leeds and Bradford. The Wuthering Bytes festival is a 10 day celebration of all things technological that are free and open source.

We are inviting every developer working in the GNU toolchain: GCC, GDB, binutils, runtimes, etc. In addition to discussion topics selected at the conference, we are looking for advance submissions.

If you have a topic that you would like to present, please submit an abstract describing what you plan to present. We are accepting three types of submissions:

  • Prepared presentations: demos, project reports, etc.
  • BoFs: coordination meetings with other developers.
  • Tutorials for developers. No user tutorials, please.

Note that we will not be doing in-depth reviews of the presentations. Mainly we are looking for applicability and to decide scheduling. There will be time at the conference to add other topics of discussion, similarly to what we did at the previous meetings.
