RustLab is an all-round conference on Rust programming which began in 2019. It is organized by Develer, a software house based in Florence, Italy.

This year RustLab will be back in presence for attendees, with both local and remote speakers. The conference will be held from October 2 to October 4, 2022 in Prato (Florence area). In this edition you will find talks and training sessions.

Each talk is planned to be 45 minutes.

The training session will be longer and focused on practical case studies. The training sessions will be 3 hours long.

CFP Description

The CfP will be open from 01/05/2022 and will close on 19/06/2022.

Though we are open to evaluate any application, we would like our speakers to present original contents.

We will accept the following kinds of talks:

  • 45 minutes talks
  • 3 hours training sessions


A talk is a 45 minutes presentation, with slides or some sort of live coding, followed by a small question and answer session at the end.

Training Sessions

A training session is a more practical talk, where the speaker can involve the audience in a hands-on tutorial about a topic/technology. The presenter may ask the attendees to prepare a setup (special equipment, tools, pre-installed programs, etc.) in advance.

To ensure a good interaction between mentor and participants, we suggest a participation of about 10~20 people.


In this edition, we accept both in presence and remote speakers for the talks.

For remote speakers, we require having proper audio and video equipment suitable to pre-record the talk that will be streamed during the conference. We also require the speaker to have a network connection suitable for the live Q&A session at the end of the streamed talk. If this can be a problem, please contact us to have more information.

Instead, for a training session, we require the mentor to be in presence, because we think it’s very hard to offer the expected level of interaction with a remote mentor.


You can submit proposals on any subject among the following topics, or propose new ones related to the Rust programming language world for subjects which are not listed.

RustLab is open to any topic that is related to the Rust programming language, but for this edition we picked out four main areas that we consider of particular interest for the conference participants. The areas are Performances, Ecosystem, Devices and Practical Experiences. Proposals may be theoretical, or practical case studies. Cross-topic proposals are also welcome.

Here are the topics we have selected:

  • Performances
    • Rust Async
    • Parallelism
    • GPU
  • Ecosystem
    • Compiler Parts
    • Oxidizing
    • Tooling & libraries
    • Debugging & profiling
  • Cloud computing
    • Rust on large scale software
    • web application
    • Building help tools like CLI
  • Devices
    • Bare metal, embedded & mobile
    • WASM
    • Security
  • Practical Experiences
    • Case studies
    • Best practices
    • Rust contributions
    • Tools & practices for remote work

Besides the usual talks, we would also like to offer:

  • Training Sessions
    • Tutorials (step by step intros to something)
    • Case studies (in-depth analysis of practical experiences)

If you work in these areas, you are an expert in a particular technology, or feel you can say something interesting on one or more of the topics listed above, go ahead: propose a talk!

If you’ve got a particularly interesting talk that doesn’t target one of the proposed topics, feel free to submit it anyway and we’ll be happy to consider it.

Send your proposal

In order to send the proposal, you need to fill in the online form with an abstract and the required data. Everything will be quickly reviewed by the staff and you will eventually receive feedback to ensure the best possible experience.

If you are a Rust maintainer or an active contributor you can contact us directly and we may organize something cool for the conference together.

Let’s have a great conference together!
