Call for Participation

We are accepting submissions for presentations on the following topics:

  • real world libcurl usage in your own application(s)
  • high performance, large scale or extreme usage of curl/libcurl
  • libcurl idioms, techniques, tips and tricks
  • HTTP3 / QUIC and future protocols
  • unsolved hard problems and challenges
  • something else you deem interesting and suitable

Proposals may have several forms eg. full paper/presentation, a short video explaining what you might want to talk about or if you like a simple email with extended abstract. Please indicate if you think your topic is better suited for the curl-up meetings or Symposium.

If your topic is selected, your speaker duties would be to obviously attend conference and give a presentation, as well as provide a draft of presentation before the conference.

Most presentations will be given ~25 minutes which means about 20 minutes for presentation and some time for Q&A. If you feel like you have a shorter presentation then we can include in the 'lightening presentations' time slot.

Please send questions and submissions to curlup at
