The Italian PostgreSQL Users Group (ITPUG - non profit organisation;
www.itpug.org), together with PostgreSQL Europe and the PostgreSQL
community is proud to announce the first official European event for the
PostgreSQL Project. We are currently seeking speakers and sponsors for
the event.

PGDay 2008 will be held in Prato, Tuscany, Italy on the 17th and 18th of
October 2008, with the Patronage of the Province of Prato.

The following organisations have given their support to PGDay (listed in
alphabetical order):

    * CNIPA
    * Comune di Prato
    * Comune di Vernio
    * GFOSS.it
    * Regione Toscana
    * University of Florence - PIN - Servizi didattici e scientifici
    * University of Pisa - Department of Information Technology

It will certainly be one of the major events of free software promotion
of the year in Europe and in the Open Source database management system
world.

Members of the core team, major developers and other members of the
global PostgreSQL community will be in Prato to meet European users and
to keep them up to date with latest news and the future of the world's
most advanced Open Source RDBMS.

The schedule of the conference is yet to be defined, with the call for
papers currently underway (http://www.pgday.org/en/call4papers). Some of
the more advanced topics that will be covered include:

    * replication systems,
    * high availability,
    * clustering,
    * data warehousing,
    * business intelligence,
    * geographical information systems (GIS).

More general usage topics will be covered as well, such as the spread of
usage of open-source database management solutions in the public sector,
private companies and universities. Particular attention will be given
to educational paths aimed at building new professions based on free
software and PostgreSQL in particular.

PGDay is an opportunity for the developer community to meet with
software development companies that use or are interested in the usage
of PostgreSQL for their products and applications: in addition to OLTP
systems, this RDBMS can effectively be used in Business Intelligence and
Data warehousing applications. In these situations the analysis and
efficient and secure management of large quantities of data is essential.

The Italian PostgreSQL Users Group is endeavouring to keep the event
open to everyone and totally free in order to favour the promotion of
PostgreSQL on a wider scale. For this reason, ITPUG has started an
advertising partnership and sponsorship campaign for those companies
that use PostgreSQL and are interested in its growth
(http://www.pgday.org/en/sponsors/campaign).

PGDay will take place at the Monash University Prato Centre, in the
magnificent historic surroundings of the prestigious Palazzo Vaj in
Prato. We are expecting 200 to 300 attendees from 15 or more countries.
