The Fourth Annual Conference of the D Programming Language: DConf 2016

May 4 to May 6, 2016

Berlin, Germany

DConf 2016 will feature keynotes, technical talks for all levels of D knowledge, experience reports, panels, and lightning talks.

The conference invites the submission of proposals for papers, talks, and experience reports. The topics of choice are anything and everything related to the D language. Such include:

* Language Proper issues, such as new idioms and techniques enabled by D
* Tools and Techniques for maximizing productivity when working in D
* Experience reports on using D in the real world
* Under the hood glances at compiler and standard library implementation artifacts * Hot topics that are sure to start lively debates, such as manual and automatic memory management, migrating from other languages, and of course the perennial matter of managing the D development itself

These are not all-inclusive. Originality in topics and formats is warmly encouraged. If it is relevant to the D language, it fits.
