Call for Papers, PostgreSQL Session #7, September, 24th

Posted on 2015-04-20

After six successful sessions dedicated to the new features of PostgreSQL 9.0 (February 2011), to PostGIS (June 2011 & September 2014), to replication systems (February 2012), to migration from Oracle to PostgreSQL (October 2012), and to PostgreSQL performance (March 2013), we'd like to announce that the 7th PostgreSQL Session will be held on September 24th, 2015, in Paris, France.

This year, another place, but always the same format! This day of lectures will be dedicated especially to the next version of PostgreSQL, but not exclusively!

For more information, see http://www.postgresql-sessions.org/7/about

We're launching a call for papers for this event. You may now submit your talks, in English or in French. Each talk should last 30 minutes (questions included). We are interested in any talks on the following subjects:

  • What's New in PostgreSQL
  • Use cases
  • Migration to PostgreSQL
  • Performance Tuning
  • Backup and Restore
  • High-Availibity
  • Data Warehouse / Big Data
  • PostGIS

Talks can be either: a case study, a Proof of Concept, a tutorial, a benchmark, a presentation of a new feature, etc. Of course, we're open to propositions on any other migration related topics (monitoring, hardware, replication, etc.) !

The submission deadline is June 15, 2015.

You can now send your proposals to call-for-paper@postgresql-sessions.org
