Call for Papers

Each session is 45 minutes after which there will be time for questions. We may also have a limited number of longer, 90-minute, slots available. Please indicate clearly in your submission if you wish to present a 90-minute talk. All presentations have to be in English.

All selected speakers will get free entry to the conference (excluding training sessions) but do need to register. We do not in general cover travel and accommodations for speakers, but may be able to do so in limited cases. If you require assistance with funding to be able to attend, please make a note of this in the submission notes field.

The submission deadline is August 7th, at midnight CET. Selected speakers will be notified before August 22nd, 2017.

Suggested Topics

Talks may be on any topic related to PostgreSQL in some way. Suggested topic areas include:

  • Developing applications with or for PostgreSQL
  • Administering large scale PostgreSQL installations
  • Case studies and/or success stories of PostgreSQL deployments (or interesting failures)
  • PostgreSQL tools and utilities
  • PostgreSQL internals hacking
  • Community and local user groups
  • Tuning and performance improvements
  • Migration from other database systems
  • Replication, Clustering and High Availability
  • Recovery and Backup strategies
  • Benchmarking and hardware
  • PostgreSQL related products
  • DevOps and continuous deployment/configuration/integration around PostgreSQL

Of course, we're happy to receive proposals for talks on other PostgreSQL related topics as well.
