Call For Presentations

Postgres Open welcomes your talks and workshops for our conference.
Talks should be oriented towards the business or development user of
PostgreSQL, and should have substantial technical content.  Submissions
are due by July 8th.

Submit them here:

Currently we are looking for seven kinds of talks:

Briefs (20min): short technical topics, product introductions, and
mini-case studies.

Scaling (50min): experiences, tools and technical details of how you
scaled PostgreSQL to meet unusual challenges of high throughput, big
data, or both.

Products (50min): technical presentations on your PostgreSQL-related
product or project, either open source or proprietary.   These should
cover both the "how" and the "why" of usage.

HOWTOs (50min): Brief DBA or developer-oriented presentations of how to
solve a problem, accomplish a task, or acheive a goal with PostgreSQL
and related tools.  This includes performance tuning, application
development, database architecture, and features.

Innovations (50min): Presentations on new PostgreSQL features and
related projects or ones in development.  Cutting-edge code, tools and
techniques with users can make use of today are welcome.

Case Studies (50min): Detailed stories on how a company or organization
accomplished extraordinary things with PostgreSQL, or how they migrated
from another DBMS.  Preferably, Case Studies should be presented or
co-presented by a member of the organization involved.

Workshops (3 hours): hands-on tutorials which thoroughly ground
attendees in a particular technology, technique, product or tool.
Workshops should include demonstrations, audience interaction, and/or
guided hands-on exercises.  If attendees need to arrive with specific
software installed, please note it in the talk description.

Postgres Open is dedicated to providing high-quality content to
attendees. As such, we request that all presenters be executives, team
leaders, engineers or architects (not sales or marketing line staff).
Presentations should have substantial technical or educational content.
 If you have questions about whether or not a particular presentation
topic is appropriate, please contact committee(at)postgresopen(dot)org(dot)
