Clojure eXchange London 2018 - Call for Papers
Clojure eXchange London 2018
Monday 3rd and 4th December 2018

Do you want to explore the latest innovations in Clojure and meet with your peers attempting to solve complex software problems using this Functional language? Clojure's rise to prominence and it's increasing popularity as 'weapon of choice' for tackling complex software problems got us thinking; wouldn't it be great to get the world's greatest Clojure experts in London with hundreds of fellow Clojurians? Well, we thought so too.

If you're looking for the best place to learn about Clojure, Functional Programming and network with like-minded people, then the Clojure eXchange 2018 is the conference you simply can't miss! Meet with the world's leading experts, learn how to use Clojure in your team and discuss war stories with your peers.

In 2018 we celebrate the eighth birthday of the Clojure eXchange, and we're excited to see what's in store come December. Both days will feature a mixture of talks covering various aspects of Clojure development; from to libraries to music, from ClojureScript to Data.

Are you working on an exciting, original or innovative project? Have you created some neat technology or discovered a useful practice? Did you and your team, crack a mind-boggling engineering challenge? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, we would love it if you would share your skills, experience and ideas in a talk at Clojure eXchange 2018! Submissions can be on topics related to Clojure. Following the suggestions we've received through the Call for Thoughts and your feedback, we would like to actively encourage submissions on the following topics:

> ClojureScript (e.g. Reactive , Web apps, Cross-Platform)
> Practical Clojure Approaches (e.g. Performance Pitfalls, Legacy App, Refactoring, Testing)

> Machine Learning/AI (e.g. Cortex)
> Large Scale Data Processing
> Creative (e.g. Art, Music, Humanities, Gaming)

*Please note that this is a strict guideline for the talk length. We advise that you share talks that you have prepared with this guideline of about 20-25mins of actual presentation in mind, and setting 5-10 mins for Q&A following that.
