RustLab 2019

Rust for real

Can your experience in the Rust ecosystem be useful to other professionals? Can you share some insight on the adoption of Rust in your project? Do you like to share the good and the pain points about Rust in the project you are working on? Submit a talk to RustLab!

You have time until April 1 23:00 UTC (extended form March 24) to submit an abstract to the first edition of RustLab that will be held in Florence on June, Friday 28 and Saturday 29, 2019.

Send your proposal

In order to send the proposal, you need to fill in the online form with an abstract and the required data. This ensures a quick review by the staff, which receives the content and review it ensuring an objective and transparent feedback in the shortest possible time, in order to ease any modification to the submitted jobs.

CFP Description

You can submit proposals till April 1, 2019 on any topic related to the Rust programming language. Talks about using Rust in production will be preferred, but you can still submit proposals about research and innovative technologies where Rust shines.

The conference will be organized on two days in which there will be both talks and workshops.


Do you have a valuable experience in Rust, applied to some specific domain? Would you like to share your knowledge with other rustaceans (or wannabe)? Propose yourself to give a workshop, possible slots are:

  • 3h workshop session, half day, in the morning or after lunch
  • 6h workshop session, full day

Conference Talks

If you have something to share about the Rust adoption, what helped you and what may help others, please share your experience! We will have 2 tracks, the talk format is:

  • 45 minute talks including Q&A and room change, 30~35 minutes of talk


You are free to talk about anything related to Rust with a focus on practical real use. We want to hear both the success and failure stories to understand where Rust has to improve to increase its adoption. Here an (incomplete) list of suggested topics:

  • Introducing Rust in a running project
  • Starting a Rust only project
  • Best practices managing a growing Rust code base
  • Performance / stability gains
  • Introducing Rust to a team
  • Success / failure stories about Rust
  • Patterns for C++/Python/Ruby/… developers

Please provide us all the information we may need to pick your proposal, your experience, previous talks / workshops given, …

Original content is more than welcome.


All talks are in English. If English is not your first (or even second) language that is totally okay, our attendees understand and are supportive.

Content Guidelines

All talks are supposed to be technical, as the audience we expect is mainly of developers. We assume a common baseline of respectful tones from everyone (see the Code of Conduct for more details). The speakers are allowed to put a company logo on the slides, but are not allowed to present any commercial product (some product your company is selling or for which your company is the main support provider). You may want to, but in our experience you’ll receive a very low evaluation from the public, focus on the development environment and not on the product for a better fit in this conference. Given the exhibition is live, if your performance will not adhere to the rules, we may not publish the video.
