Experts Wanted: Call for Papers | Qt World Summit 2015

We have now officially opened the Call for Papers for Qt World Summit. The Qt World Summit is the global event for all things Qt. Here, whether you are a tech strategist or a developer (even both for that matter), you can meet like-minded peers for networking and discussions, as well as learning about creating exceptional applications and devices that your users love. We plan to build the summit around these big themes:

  • Internet of Things systems and creating connected devices
  • Qt as the software solution for multi-platform development - desktop, mobile and embedded
  • The modern C++ standards and benefits
  • Automotive and industrial HMI trends
  • Creation of modern desktop user interfaces
  • Enterprise multi-screen development strategies
  • High-end UX on low-power embedded devices

The Qt World Summit will consist of two inspiring and educational days starting with keynotes from the creators of Qt and top industry leaders who will share their experiences with Qt. After being updated on the Qt roadmap, we will offer you a variety of sessions covering everything from technology strategy and product lifecycle management to in-depth technical talks on new APIs, best practices and live coding sessions all presented by Qt contributors and industry experts from around the world.

In the call for papers you will find three main talk categories: Qt Technology Strategy, Qt Application Development and Device Creation, and Seeking Innovation. More details to be found here. We invite all of you, from within the Qt community and the related industries, to submit your suggestions and abstracts. We are looking forward to your contribution and together make the best Qt event to date. Download the guidelines.

The conference also wouldn't be nearly as amazing without our sponsors. We are very happy to have KDAB as our Diamond sponsor, showing their strong and continued commitment to the Qt ecosystem especially after their great effort of organizing the previous Qt Developer Days. A huge thanks also to e-GITS and Froglogic as Gold sponsors, and basysKom as Silver sponsor.
