June 22nd - June 23rd
Deadline: February 29th

An international C++ conference in the heart of Paris

Speaker Benefits

If you are selected to be a speaker, we will cover the price of the ticket for you. We will also give you one additional ticket if you want to come accompanied (said ticket should not be resold).

It is very important for us that anybody who could give a good talk will not be prevented for financial reason, which is why we can help any selected speaker by covering the cost of the transportation and hotel.

The hotel reservation will be handled by us. For the transportation, depending on your location, we will give you a maximum expected budget that covers an economy class flight or a train ticket for French speakers and will reimburse you. If you need something different for any reason, please contact us once selected and we will discuss it on a case-by-case basis.

CPPP is organized by a non-profit organization in a very expensive city, so any speaker who can have their cost covered by their company is invited to do that instead. A company paying for its speaker transportation and accommodation can automatically be listed as bronze sponsor.

    In a great hotel near the venue (including free WiFi) for the days of the conference, a day before, and the weekend after (i.e. Sept 28th-29th). If you want to stay longer, we can arrange things, just let us know, but you may have to cover extra nights, though.

  • Entrance to the conference
    We probably won’t be done with the speaker selections by the end of the ticket sales, so if you want to make sure you can attend, just drop a mail to us and we will reserve a ticket for you (just don't mention anything related your talk in that mail please). If you get selected to speak and if you need to, we can refund your ticket, or you can transfer it to anyone you like.
