It is the time of the year again when the #1 Qt event of the year, Qt World Summit, is a approaching and Call for Papers is now open. Qt World Summit 2016 is held October 18-20, 2016 in San Francisco, CA.

At the Qt World Summit, we celebrate the synergy of Qt, the ecosystem, and technology. We are passionate about enabling innovation, interactivity, enhanced user experiences, IoT, application development, device creation and visualization (to name a few!), and keen on the points of connection and collaboration among the disciplines. For more than 12 years, our conference has served as a hub, bringing together technology innovators, industry experts, creative startups, and device creators who continue to inspire, educate, and show innovative approaches to various communities within application development and device creation techniques–as well as the latest trends around the Qt roadmap, API offerings, tips’n’tricks and hands-on tutorial sessions!

Qt World Summit 2016 will continue to build on this legacy while striving to create stronger ecosystem among our existing, converging and emerging communities. We are determined to render the exponential potential that arise when software systems, ideas, and techniques intertwine.

To do this, we need your best work! Qt World Summit 2016 offers a variety of opportunities for you to present, network, and be an integral part of the conference. Now, we are seeking submissions along the main themes of the conference:

  • Creating Connected Devices and Internet of Things
  • Things getting smaller
  • Next generation graphics approaches
  • The future of user interfaces and 3D
  • Software as a differentiator – Industries being revolutionized by software: Automotive, Medical/Health, Consumer Electronics,  Industrial Automation, Aerospace/Defense and more
  • Software solution for multi-platform development – desktop, mobile and embedded

For these themes, we are looking for inspiring strategy and industry talks (Technology Strategy) as well as more hands-on technical talks (Qt for Application Development and Device Creation).

For the full details of the themes, submission categories and instructions, please view the Qt World Summit 2016 Call for Speakers document and Submit your talks here.

From mission-critical work to newly developed technologies, lecture-based workshops to consumer electronics project strategies, real-time operating systems to experiential installations, mobile applications to innovative animations and visual effects, submissions will be reviewed and evaluated by our experts from a plethora of specializations.

Of course, there are deadlines! Qt World Summit Call for Papers deadline is May 20th, and we don’t want to miss your submission. Feel free to contact Qt World Summit 2016 program chairs regarding the submission process. We’ll be happy to hear your questions, comments, or ideas.

Contact qtws@qt.io if you have any questions.

That being said, on behalf of the Qt World Summit 2016 program committee, I invite you to contribute and to join us this fall in beautiful San Francisco, California for another educational, stimulating, and memorable gathering of the worldwide Qt ecosystem. With you, we hope to shape and imagine the exponential potential of our future.

I look forward to seeing you (talk!) at #QtWS16!

And again, submit your talk here!

Sylv says:

I guess you don’t organize a Qt World Summit in Europe for cost reasons, but do you plan to organize this event again in Europe in the future? Is it “replaced” by the Qt Contributor Summit ?

Tuukka Ahoniemi Tuukka Ahoniemi says:


QtCon is not replacing Qt World Summit in Europe, but it’s the annual Qt Contributor’s Summit combined with few other contributor events. QtCon is mostly intended for the people contributing to Qt where as Qt World Summit is the main annual meeting for all of Qt world, combining Qt users/developers and industry experts of all areas around Qt. So hopefully many people from Europe would join the QtWS in SF as well this year. I know this can be difficult for some but I guarantee it’s wortwhile 🙂

QtWS was held last year in Berlin and this year in San Francisco. Next years location hasn’t been decided yet.
