The C++ standard library provides a set of classes that greatly simplifies software development. However, it is not all that is needed in day-to-day programming. For this reason, Boost was founded to develop upcoming C++ library extensions. Now, in a new revision of the C++ Standard several Boost libraries are being integrated. However, what comes next? Even with the Boost library collection, the range of libraries available for C++ to support application development still falls below other languages.

In this workshop we will work on other libraries that might extend C++ (for example a library for communications via sockets). The workshop is open for all who are interested in providing or suggesting a new C++ library. Participants will write a position statement about the library and the needs it would fulfill. The workshop will concentrate on providing feedback on the ideas and on any concrete first implementations.
